    I'm getting some new equipment soon, and since it's been recommended to me I'm going to try to get some German equipment. Does anyone know if Allstar ships to the US?

    Fechsport Langenkamp is an Uhlmann/Allstar dealer in Germany which ships to the US. In general, items purchased directly from Germany will be considerably less expensive (remember to subtract the VAT from the listed prices- Langenkamp's PDF pricelist gives prices without VAT), but shipping tends to be very costly (Langenkamp used to have a 31 Euro minimum shipping charge which I think has now gone up to 50 Euros) so unless you are ordering a lot the savings on price will be largely negated by the shipping. Returns and exchanges will also be considerably more complicated.

    Both Allstar and Uhlmann will redirect you to US vendors if you attempt to buy directly from them. As Mr. Neevel pointed out, there is the option of Fechtsport Langenkamp.

    You can order directly from FWF.
