Hi
I am wondering if there is anyone from Melbourne Australia here , and if they know what good events are on to do with sword collecting and purchasing. I mean any clubs or associations , that organise events like that.

Thanx

Hey Arthur
I have been an off and on member of the Historical re-enactment scene in Melbourne for about 15 years, and with regards to medieval swords there are no groups like you describe that I am aware of. I know there are a few different clubs around that are like what you describe for more recent military swords, and one or two who sit around appreciating katana.
If anyone knows different, I would love to learn of such groups.
