Welcome to Armoury Antiques and Militaria!

Armoury Antiques and Militaria deal with all things related to antique arms and armour and military collectables whilst  Binky’s Barn is the vintage furniture and kitchenalia side of our business.Binky’s Barn will be up and running in late 2020 and specialising in the up-cycling of vintage furniture as well as stocking antique curios.

Armoury Antiques and Militaria are unique, in that, we have exceptional experience when dealing, owning and using antique Japanese swords and armour. The owner has been training, living and visiting Japan since the age of 11 and has unique contacts and experience there. In addition, he has been collecting and appraising Japanese swords, armour and fittings for over 30 years and has unique associations in Japan. The site is a commercial and educational website dealing in original Japanese swords, armour, fittings, artwork and worldwide militaria. We are always glad to share our knowledge and help anyone to learn about swordsmanship, swords, medals, armour and all things antique arms and armour. We always advise our clients to buy the best condition examples that they can find, yes, it may cost a little more, but in the long-run it is very sound advice. We often see on social media platforms overcleaned, resored, put together or tired items being offered by individuals - these items will never rise in value or give a return on your investment - please be warned. We are often offered these kind of items at our shop or on-line and never buy them as serious collectors do not want to invest or collect such poor quality 'messed about with' examples.  

Armoury Antiques and Militaria and Binky’s Barn are based at their shop in delightful Devon (on Dartmoor in fact - Hound of The Baskervilles country!).
