Swords for Sale in Australia

There are quite a few different sites offering Swords for sale in Australia, however due to the distance from the US market (and our beloved GST) prices tend to be a lot higher here than almost anywhere else... :-(

That said, we do have quite a handful of good local Aussie sword sellers that cover just about all the major brands, most notably Victorian based sword selling giant Globar Gear.com, but there are many other smaller operations, many of them who have been quietly plugging away for years and offer some real old fashioned customer service.

Recommended Aussie Sword Sites

Swords are, for the most part, legal for a person over 18 to own in Australia except for in Victoria - where they are prohibited weapons and require a permit/exemption to own and must be stored securely. More information on this and also on how to get further state by state advice is kindly provided by Global Gear on their site here

Global Gear

Comments: Global Gear are the biggest of the big boys, with a massive retail location based in Knox, Victoria (of all places!). They stock most of the major sword brands, such as Cold Steel, Hanwei, etc but also have their own range made for them in China that are on the whole pretty decent bang for the buck (taking advantage of Australia's proximity to Asia, rather than having swords made in China, shipped to the USA, and then back to Australia again - so the prices are reasonable).

Sabyr Imports

Comments: Run by Nathan Kime, Sabyr also have a store on ebay and are the official Australian distributor for Oni Forge, but also stock Cold Steel, Hanwei and others. Their prices are a little on the high side, but their customer service is second to none.


Comments: Travelling to the various Renaissance fairs, these guys are offer Deepeka Swords for sale in Australia, and are popular with re-encators for their swords and armor and carry a lot more of their products in stock and ready to go than most other Aussie sword sellers.

Lawrence Ordnance (the Sharpened Edge)

Comments: For all your Aussie Militaria needs, Lawrence Ordnance also offer quite a large range of Hanwei, Windlass and a few Deepeeka Swords for sale in Australia – including British Commonwealth replica swords and many other categories.

Appleby's Fine Art

Comments: Based in London since 1913, and now also in Australia, while they only sell genuine antiques - and not really online but at the various antique sales around Australia, if you are looking for something that goes beyond the usual reproduction sword market - thet are definitely the gentlemen to talk to...

Tatami Mats in Australia!! (yay!)

After years and years of struggling to get decent quality Tatami Mats in Australia, you can finally get REAL MUGEN DACHI (top quality) Tatami Omote right here in Australia from Ozi Tatami.com

Great prices, great service and finally, no more $100 shipping fees a box..!Happy cutting guys and girls!

Finally, you may also want to consider using the services of a mail forwarder as explained here as all swords for sale in Australia are much more expensive than they should be due to GST, double shipping costs (i.e. shipping from the manufacturer, usually in China, to the USA and then back to Australia again) and rather arbitrary import duties and AQIS (Australian Quarantine) costs.

Like that one time I tried to set myself up to offer swords for Sale in Australia, but gave up after AQIS charged me $180 to chemcially treat three $4 wooden stands.. Didn't even have any say in it, they just went ahead with it and sent me the bill - so don't think local Australian sellers are gouging you, they are just passing on the gouging by the Australian government (don't get me started)...
