For the love of and investment in antique swords.
The reason we buy swords is because we love to collect! The reason we sell them is because we only have so much display space, and selling swords allows us to experience a greater number and buy more! Actually, antique swords represent one of the best and most evocative investments you can make. Antiques are proven recession busters, plus you get to handle swords, the epitome of honour and bravery; possibly once held and even used in terrible close combat during famous battles such as Waterloo. Antique swords in particular have at least doubled in value over the last 10 years or more, perhaps quadrupled in value over the last 20 years, and are certain to keep on appreciating.
