Thank you for choosing to contact Swords and Antique Weapons.

I have created this web site out of a desire to better serve the collecting community with quality items for their collections and study interests.

I started antique collecting over 20 years ago. My interests then varied greatly with some wonderful acquisitions that truly showed how masterful the artisans of old were with their abilities to display true presence in their creations. I have in this time provided wonderful acquisitions to collectors, dealers and museums. Many of our items have gone on to be published items in notable books, others used in movie and theatre production. We continue to provide images and research documentation for Television series and have also appeared on Television with Eric Knowles of Antiques Road Show fame.

About 15 years ago, my interests took to a turn in to the eclectic world or Swords and Antique Weapons. I was truly fascinated with the beauty within these pieces that are both functional weapons and outstanding pieces of displayable art. I did in time develop a particular fondness for the vast diversity found in Chinese weapons and their martial applications but interests soon grew with my personal focus being Central Asian Edged weapons and those from the southern border regions of Tibet and China through in to South East Asia.

My study of antique swords and weapons is a relentless undying passion that continues to grow through a wonderful network of family, friends and associates that I have met on this magical journey. My learning has taken me into many different facets behind these weapons, including the cultures that these pieces have come from, trade routes they followed, ethnic and cultural crossovers throughout time, as well as art, manufacture and customs behind these wonderful pieces.
