Swords

Hi

I'm trying to buy a second hand sword as a gift on behalf of a friend - anyone got any ideas where i might get a second hand one for about £400-500?

I've already tried HMS NELSON Wardroom but the old stores place in there is closed because there is no one to run it.

Any advice gratefully recieved, Thanks

Have you looked at the thread in the Sea Cadet Forum - Swords are discussed at great length there.

You could try ebay ( http://search.ebay.co.uk//search/search.dll?from=R40&satitle=sword ) where officers swords go on sale periodically. There is one for sale at the moment of writing (8 mins left)!
