    Hard to sell as many auctions will not sell these due to the concealed weapon aspect. Can be worth a fair few quid though in private sales.

    illegal to buy or sell now, you will get at least two years in prison for the sale of concealed weapons, which is what they are, but saying that they are worth about £2000 - £3000

    thanks for advice think ive been scared off by the prospect of jail ha think will have to look into it a bit more incase we get in trouble thanks for advice tho appreciated repped

    These swords sticks were legal to buy in the UK in the mid eightys ,a guy at work was selling them together with filofax's ...............remember them .I bought the set and still have the stick , sadly not the filofax !
    The sticks never left the house in all these years ,had an idea they would be banned now . Never bought it to use it though .Taking about dangerous weapons ,loads of folk had samurai swords ,seen them all over the place , on living room walls , on windows sills. Never wanted a collection of knives ,except in the kitchen draw .

    Banned

    they can go for lots of money... dont sell on ebay try to get down to a weapons/military dealer... probably your best shot of it going to the best hands and price... google and email potential buyers.

    my grandma used to have on of these, accidentaly stabbed herself in the foot, nasty things

    I think I saw a guy in a public park picking up litter with one of these and putting it into a sack!!:-D

    Only joking, these are worth a lot of money, but due to them being offensive weapons, don't wave it about in public. ;-)

    I'm sure that some eccentric country gents would be willing to pay a pretty penny for it.:w00t:

    did you know that 3weeks after they banned samuria swords, they were made legal to buy and sell again.
