The history of the blade can be traced back to the stone age and flint tools, however, the weapon has been changed and modified extensively over the centuries. Although the sword has been used in war for several millenia, there are other uses for them, such as hunting and domestic use. Most of the swords sold at auction were made within the last few hundred years. So, whether you have an 18th Century German rapier, a 17th Century Japanese Katana, or a later object or collection, we've got it covered.
Other types of bladed weapons include: daggers, bayonets, hunting knives, polearms and axes.
