Can I or how do I ship bayonets to Canada?

Recommended Posts

I want to send my late fathers collection of bayonets to my Brother in Vancouver and I'm not sure if this is allowable and who would ship them? Any advice would be welcome please? I have used Interparcel to send normal family items to him. They are a website 'broker' who come up with rates using a variety of the normal shippers like UPS etc and they said they couldn't ship them. Also tried FedEx and they said they won't ship them or any militaria............

AFAIK there is no legislation to stop you posting them in the UK however I've no idea from a Canadian customs point of view. Most of the shipping companies just come up with their own rules and unfortunately it's their train set so to speak.

 

A quick check of Parcel Force prohibited items list doesn't list Knives or Bayonets as prohibited by them however I did find a funny item on the list;

 

"Wet ice (frozen water)"

 

How long would it remain like that I wonder!

your best bet is to contact both customs, discuss it and ask if any paperwork is needed.

i had the same with my wedding sword, legal in the uk as well in holland but still needed to clear customs as they want to know what is entering and exiting the country.

As far as I know we have no laws against knives/bayonets in canada. I have bought more than a few here in Canada from parts of the world and it has been marked as such, customs never blinked an eye. might be good to insure though
