How to use [spoiler tags](#s) How to use [tooltips](#t "tip")
A subreddit for enthusiasts, practitioners, collectors, and investigators of swords (and related historical weapons). Real swords, decorative, historical, fantasy; humor, social, ID requests, shopping help, art; all sword-related topics are welcome (we are not very strict about topicality)! Please check out the wiki!

Be civil. Debate is welcome, but don't demean others, and exercise tact regarding people's property. If you are tired of newbie questions, it is better to link wiki posts or old topics than to spread negativity.
Please post from only one account. Vote spamming is not just rude but dishonest.
No commercial spam. You can promote your own works and services, as long as you identify them as such. This isn't a classifieds list, but we do welcome makers, sellers, and teachers willing to engage with the community. Also, avoid posting many similar topics in a very short period (e.g. every YouTube video by a given user). Finally, be aware that Reddit automatically shadow-blocks posts that link to your own materials too often; as mods we have zero ability to stop this.
We do not condone the modern-day use of swords as actual weapons. Topics on the subject are not prohibited, but readers are encouraged to link to this topic explaining the official stance.
