BUYING AND SELLING ANTIQUE SWORDS AND OTHER ANTIQUE ARMS & ARMOUR IN THE UK

 

I am Matt Easton - a historical fencing instructor, historical researcher, YouTuber, antique dealer and Arms & Armour Specialist with Chiswick Auctions.

I am based in Surrey, England. I have been collecting antique arms for over 20 years. My reputation is based on honesty and transparency. I am on great terms with lots of other antique dealers and collectors, personally, through collectors' fairs and websites (such as Swordforum International and the Antique Sword Forum). You can find out all about my activities through my YouTube channel and social media, and you can easily find lots about me simply through Google.

 

You will find the items listed on this website described frankly, admitting imperfections and with numerous high-resolution close-up photos. As a practicing swordsman specialising in Victorian military sabre, teaching since 2001, I will often comment on swords I sell from the perspective of a user. I do not make up stories in order to sell things or imply that items are associated with people or events that there is no evidence for. I add verifyable historical research to an item's description only when I am certain of it and with clear caveats where necessary.

 

As well as my prominent online visibility, I have lectured on arms and warfare at venues such as the Tower of London, Stibbert Collection, Imperial Armoury of Vienna, Royal Armouries Leeds and Wallace Collection, as well as publishing a few articles and books. I am currently working on fencing and sword-related publications. There are a growing number of articles by me on the research page here.

News and updates now go up on my dedicated FACEBOOK PAGE. Please go and give the page a like.

 

For purchasing something you simply need to email me at eastonantiquearms@gmail.com - I accept bank transfers within the UK and Paypal internationally. All prices contained here exclude postage and packing (10 flat fee for swords within the UK). I post items internationally at cost, including the USA, Canada, Australia, the EU and so on. I do accept negotiable payment plans on items over 400.

 

I do not have a physical shop and all my trading is done online for now, although I do occasionally sell at arms fairs. As well as my popular YouTube channel and I run weekly fencing classes in West London and Woking - www.swordfightlondon.com (by prior arrangement it is possible to view an item or collect at my fencing classes)

I am always on the hunt for antique (pre-WW1) items to buy. If you have something to sell then please just email me at eastonantiquearms@gmail.com with some photos. I also occasionally buy parts of or entire collections.

I am still a collector at heart and not purely a dealer. I am often on the hunt for things to add to my collection and occasionally liberate things from my own collection and sell them through this website. You can view some of my collection through my YouTube channel and in my articles here and on various forums.
