Hello!

I've been looking through lots of antique swords lately and I'm hoping that some people can share some websites of original antique swords which they trust.

I like these guys.

If you guys have any more please post the links I'd love to see!

Itís a dodgy business. To make matters worse, a dealer can misidentify a sword as an antique and unintentionally sell you something outside of your interests.

Iíll Have to think of some good sources. Nothing comes to mind at the moment.

A highly regarded, high-end seller that often handles museum deaccessions is:

Thomas Del Mar, Ltd

(I have no association with this company.)

I have had very good experiences with Michael Long, Garth Vincent, Alban, Bolk, and Antique Weapon Store in the U.S.

As for auction houses, Iíve gotten great things from Hermann Historica, Czernyís, Bonhams, and Sothebyís
