Does anybody have any information about where to buy a decent sword? I have been watching the âSharpâ collection of DVDâs and the swords they all swing about with such gusto seem to be very good at, well killing. Thinking about starting a collection to help with my âHome defence- you see officer I collect these things and it was all I had to handâ In reality I am searching the web âGoogle etc for first hand accounts of using the things. Remember years ago in Keogh Barracks looking at the Waterloo sketches by a surgeon as I recall showing all sorts of nasty wounds and such but I am interested in locating a true source of the actual recorded use of British swords in combat- (against the French I hope). Has anyone got? 1. A link to a site with info on their use for real? 2. A link to a site where I could get a decent blade for a real price. It would look good over the fireplace as well.
