Hello Everyone,

Im trying to create a solid list of sword makers from very high-end to ...Hanwei and all in between.

Its a good resource to share from time to time to open up other collectors to new makers.


Vince Evans
Peter Johnson
Tinker Pearce
Albion Armorers
Angus trim
Arms and Armor
Darkwood armoury
Lutel
Darksword armoury
BKS
Windless
Museum Replicas
Hanwei
cold steel

My god its been a while, I've got to be missing a few good ones?

Patrick Barta
Petr Florianek
Jeff Pringle
Jake Powning
J. Arthur Loose
Jim Hrisoulas
Scott Roush
Owen Bush
Jeff Helmes
Michael Pikula
R.H. Graham (Randal Graham who has reappeared)
Christopher Price
Dave Stephens

Ollin Sword Design
Del Tin
Ancient Forge

If you include bronze swords (and you should) there is
Neil Burridge
Jeroen Zuiderwijk (who does not do swords for a living)

And what about Axe makers?
James Austin

One of the problems of such a list is that people and companies are endlessly joining and leaving the list. So it is not long before it is obsolete!

Have you guys checked out the "links" page here at myArmoury? It's a pretty comprehensive list of who is available for commission, in stock, or production items. There's a little button for it at the top of the page but I've included a link. Here's the link:

http://www.myArmoury.com/links.html

If you think of any that aren't on the list, you may want to contact the Administrators to get it added.

D'oh! I guess I could have checked for a links page first... Hey, Neil Burridge isn't listed! Hmm, I will have to message admins with some suggestions....

Thanks Tim!

No problem! Actually there are a few that you guys listed in this post that aren't in the links section... myArmoury is a great resource, isn't it!

I'd rather see the links page have a few things added to it than end up with a largely repetitive thread people have to search for...

I'd like to ask people to check the links page and then perhaps someone can compile a list of things people would like added. But that's just my suggestion. Happy
