testimonials

Sword arrived today. Fabulous. This is an excellent example of a fighting sword of its period, and a real gem. The 1828 Pattern is such a gorgeous sword, and this is a fine example. Even my bride is impressed and she doesn’t really get swords.

I picked up the No5 this morning and I'm well pleased with it.

Thanks very much for a great deal hope to trade again in the future.
