Antique arms for sale

Welcome to Peter Dekker's antique arms site. I trade mainly in antique arms from Asia, with special interest in antique Chinese swords and weapons of the Qing dynasty, arms from India, Sri Lanka, Southeast Asia, the Himalayas and Asian composite bows. I buy, research, preserve and trade in antique arms from these regions.

I work closely with restorer and notable arms expert Philip Tom whose work is showcased here.
