BUYING AND SELLING ANTIQUE SWORDS AND OTHER WEAPONS IN THE
I am Matt Easton - an historical fencing
instructor and arms and armour researcher, based in Surrey, England.
I have been collecting antique arms for over 20 years.
I have lectured on arms and warfare at venues such as the
Tower of London, Stibbert Collection, Royal Armouries Leeds
and Wallace Collection, as well as publishing a few articles and books. I am currently working on a few different
sword-related publications. There are a growing number of

further articles here in the future.

sell. If you have something to sell then please just email
me with some photos. I also occasionally buy parts of or
