Okay so as before... I'd say that you'd have to get it on an official document that the sword is UK legal. Does it not come with any sort of certificate or (I'm obviously out of my depth here) serial number? Something, anything that is proof of what it is?

Letter of authenticity available to customs when it arrives in the country, so on top of the sword in the packaging perhaps (they'll have a butchers I imagine). Then have another copy for yourself for when you have to go down and talk to customs about its authenticity as a genuine piece.
Can't do any harm.
