For the love of and investment in antique swords.
The reason we buy swords is because we love to collect!
The reason we sell them is because we only have so much display
space, and selling swords allows us to experience a greater number
and buy more! Actually, antique swords represent one of the best
and most evocative investments you can make. Antiques are proven
recession busters, plus you get to handle swords, the epitome of
honour and bravery; possibly once held and even used in terrible
close combat during famous battles such as Waterloo. Antique swords
in particular have at least doubled in value over the last 10 years
or more, perhaps quadrupled in value over the last 20 years, and
are certain to keep on appreciating.

and cutlasses), Japanese katanas & wakizashis (Nihonto), Russian
shashkas, Ottoman / Persian shamshirs, but we will collect anything
nice and evocative. If you have a sword you might like to sell (see:
buying / selling swords), we would
like to hear from you. If you need a sword ID'd / valued (we only
charge £10 per ID / valuation) please visit: identifications
We are unaffected by the Brexit referendum, because people often
invest in commodities, bonds and antiques when there is economic
uncertainty. In fact, prices in antiques generally go up during
such times. Plus our customers in the EU, USA, Canada, Australia
and New Zealand will no doubt be delighted at the fall in strength
of the British pound sterling, as our swords priced in GBP effectively
just became a lot cheaper for them! Also, as the UK is still in
the EU at this time, easy shipment to other EU countries remains

We guarantee NONE of the swords for sale here are
reproductions; be careful, many dishonest or misinformed
people too often sell repros as authentic on eBay and some
"respectable" dealer sites, but not here! See
our warnings page.

USD and AUD; see our Sales Contact
page for payment methods and options, including lay-away.
We were reviewed and have been specifically approved in September
2012 by PayPal for all our items. We ship the vast majority
of our edged weapons from the UK, but also a small number
from elsewhere in the EU. We will advise you if the edged
weapon you are interested in is not in the UK.
