Welcome to Armoury Antiques and Binky’s Barn

This is a dual website with two distinct shopping experiences. ‘Armoury Antiques and Militaria’ deal with all things related to swords, daggers, armour and military collectables, whilst ‘Binky’s Barn’ is the vintage furniture and kitchenalia side of our business that will be up and running in 2019 and specialising in up-cycling vintage furniture as well as stocking antique curios.

I have been training, living and visiting Japan since the age of 11 and have unique contacts and experience there. In addition, I have been collecting and appraising Japanese swords, armour and fittings for over 30 years and have unique associations in Japan. The site is a commercial and educational website dealing in quality Japanese swords, armour, fittings, artwork and general worldwide militaria. I am always glad to share my knowledge and help anyone to learn about swords, fittings and militaria. We have the following affiliations/ memberships:

  • Consultant/ Valuer for Paul Laidlaw Auctioneers and Valuers
  • Consultant/ Valuer for Drakes Auction House 
  • Member of The Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto Ryu (天真正伝香取神道流) - Japan
  • Member of The Arms and Armour Society

Armoury Antiques and Binky’s Barn are based in Devon (on Dartmoor in fact - Hound of The Baskevilles country!) and have a retail premises packed full of quality antique arms and armour as well as antiques and retro collectables.
