    Yes. Richards Microfit and Darrell Holland stocks. However Darrell Holland don't export any more, they are my stock of choice. The Richards Microfit stock required a lot of work to finish the stock off. Manners don't ship to consumers and only ship intermittently to their appointed agents.

    If it's not listed in the drop down menu you can email a request form and if they get enough interest they will supply them. They only started the T3 stock last year or so after people kept requesting it.

    Just ordered a Boyds last week, its been sent using USPS and I can track it. Ordered 21st, posted 22nd, left USA 23rd, in London Heathrow on 24th. Customs on 27th, cleared customs today 28th. Hopefully it will be delivered in the next few days. Cost $99, postage about $70 and my credit card was debited 114.
    No phone calls from customs so hopefully no additional tax to pay.

    they don't call you, the carrier will charge you before delivery.

    As kennyc has stated, you will get a card through the post telling you how much you owe and how to pay online etc. After paying it then gets delivered to you.

    In the not to distant past, there was good chance of not getting further charges. Its all changed now as the UK Goverment invested a few million on a receiving centre where nearly all postal shipping from abroad is sent and processed. They obviously could see that the internet selling from abroad was rather lucrative if they tapped into the duty that was due to them on the goods.

    It matters not a jot if the old tactic of getting the seller to mark the item as a gift as they still charge.

    Expect to pay in the region of 30 which will include the handling charge.

    Its still a good price compared to buying the equivalent here in the UK though
