For Free ID's & Valuations
We recommend you post your sword details here; Antique
You do not have to register in order to do this, but registration
is beneficial as you can be notified when anyone replies. Some people
may offer to ID / value your sword for a fee. Most people will more
than likely ID your edged weapons for free.
Or you can contact us (We charge £10 per ID / valuation)
If you require a sword identification and / or valuation (We provide
UK auction and retail value estimates only), we may be able to help
you; it depends on the sword and whether we are knowledgeable in
that area of course. We charge £10 (GBP - British pounds sterling)
per simple sword ID & valuation. If you want extra information
such as the authentication / translation of a Japanese mei (the
signature / date on the tang of the blade), research or advice,
this will cost more and we will let you know how much in advance
IF we are able to do it for you in the first place.
To get an ID / valuation from us / start the process;
1) Please pay £10 for each sword you want ID'd & valued
to our PayPal account:
2) Email us clear images of your sword(s) - our email address is
the same as our PayPal account. Please do not send us large high
resolution photos as our email account may reject these. It may
be a good idea to open a free photobucket
account, upload your images there, and then simply send us a
link to your photobucket portfolio.
3) If we can not help you regarding any sword, we will refund the
£10 for each. If we can help, we will send you back the sword
model / type and its value (both auction value and retail / insurance
Please do not ask us to ID / value a sword without first making
the PayPal payment. We get so many emails asking for what amount
to be requests for free information that regrettably we simply can
not respond to any requests that have not paid in advance any more.
We may be willing / able to do consultancy work. If we are, we
would charge £75 per hour or part thereof. Payment would be
2 hours in advance plus settlement of each 5 hour period when such
occur. Consultancy work included, for example, sword and original
