My name is Maxime Chouinard. I am a sword collector, museum professional and martial arts instructor living in Ottawa, Canada. I have been collecting antique swords for more than 10 years, regularly acquiring new pieces, and as a result, I also rotate them frequently. I have then created this website as a page to advertise the swords I am currently selling.
As I am not a professional dealer, I try to keep my prices relatively low. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to make an offer. All swords are, to the best of my knowledge, genuine antiques. I do not sell fakes or replicas of any kind, and will include any repairs including replacement of parts in my listings. As a museum professional, I have a reputation to maintain and it is important to me to be absolutely honest about what I sell.
I am also open to negotiate the price on most of these swords, so don’t hesitate to make me an offer.
To be kept aware of new arrivals you can subscribe to this page, or to my Facebook page where I list any new arrivals before they are listed on this page. Also note that I do not keep wish lists, nor do I hunt specific swords for people. I also do not sell by consignment.
Please note that I do not sell swords to people under 18, and I am not responsible for what you would choose to do after you acquire one. Swords are weapons and must be handled safely and responsibly.
For any questions, please contact me by email.
Some comments from past clients:
I was initially nervous ordering a sword that I hadn’t handled and from another country, however my fears were unfounded. After purchase things proceeded like clockwork, regular correspondence and prompt delivery. Upon delivery the packaging was excellent, and the sword itself exactly as described. I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase another sword from isellswords.com again. Fantastic service all round.

The sword arrived home in very good shape today. Thank you for the fast and courteous transaction. It corresponds in every details to what I expected from the description and the pictures. If the opportunity presents itself again, I will not hesitate to do business with you again or to recommend you to other people.
