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.

Brexit + No PayPal Surcharges!
We are unaffected by Brexit because people 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 the same. Finally, we no longer have credit card / PayPal surcharges; you get the same price as everyone else.

Established in 1997, we sell and ship worldwide antique British swords, Napoleonic French sabres & authentic Japanese katanas. We guarantee NONE of the swords for sale here are reproductions; be careful, repros / fakes are too often sold as authentic elsewhere, but not here! See our warnings page.

Prices are in £ GBP but we will gladly accept Euros, USD and AUD; see our Sales Contact page for payment methods and options, including lay-away. 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 item is not in the UK.
