    I am looking for sword online websites, i have seen a friends collection of swords and it has given me some interest to research on my own. it will be kind of you if you can suggest a site or some swords for collection.

    doing your own research doesn't necessarily mean asking others for where to buy it.

    do you want to get some good fencing swords for actual HEMA, some historically accurate replicas or just some fanatsy crap wallhangers?

    there's plenty of sources like cult of athena, covex ars, arma, lutel, albion....just google any of those ;)

    hey billy02 probably wisest to state where you are really but in britain you could try battleorders.co.uk which is a shop in brighton but they have a massive selection of movie/replica/historical swords and theyl send you a free catalogue too, or at least they used too but technology is always moving on huh! btw check out the officially liscensed game of thrones replicas in the "valaryian steel" tab

    Thank you, yes i am looking for replicas, as the vintage would be very expensive to afford at this starting point. for learning and properly developing my interest its best to start with replicas and gain knowledge.

    you still did not answer if you are into fencing/fighting or just collecting.

    imho - to properly start in swords or historical weaponry in general, it is best to ~not~ buy anything at first but to invest in books and knowledge. then start with some proper replicas and work your way up to the real stuff.

    only collection, as it looks cool to have sword collection, hanging on wall, table tops etc.
    so like i want to start with something so like if i have one sword and i see it everyday so i get the urge to buy another and so on.
    my friend started it with one now he has a lot.
