We are having another clean-out of old swords that we don't tend to use anymore. The intention is to put money towards some new rapiers, or perhaps add a new item to our collection of antiques.

If you would like to make me an offer and bargain a bit for the swords, then I'm open the idea - but please bear in mind that my objective here is to raise money to buy more swords for the charity, and so I won't be able to consider silly offers.

Please click on an image to see more pictures of a sword.
