• Feedback; "Very pleased with the rare Cromwellian Pikeman's breastplate, which I recently purchased.

    The item was described, on their web-site, in a very clear and precise way. I would recommend Jason to anyone looking to source items, to expand their collection".G MAdeley 22 April 2020

  • "I have had the pleasure of dealing with Rod Akeroyd and Son on a few occasions now and have found their level of service to far surpass any other antique arms dealer with which I have dealt. Jason in particular has been of great assistance, his descriptions have been very accurate and detailed and he has always gone the extra mile to assist with additional information or photographs when requested. The swords that I have received have been very well packed indeed, have been shipped exceptionally quickly and have exceeded expectation. I cannot hesitate to recommend this company for its high level of professionalism and for the quality of its arms."

    • Dear Jason,
      The pinch-of-snuff sword arrived today and I can only describe it as an “elegant” sword. This is the latest of the several swords I have had from you and, as always,  you have produced a fine addition to my collection.
      The intricately-wrought basket has a deceptively delicate appearance but is actually a sturdy hilt. The white shagreen grip is set off by a wrap of thin brass wire, with tightly-woven turk’s heads top and  bottom.
      The Ferara-marked triple-fullered backsword blade is also deceptive, slender but sharp and flexible as a buggy whip.
      It is always a pleasure to do business with you.
      Best regards,

      • Dear Jason,


      I hope that you are well.


      I have had time to look at the carbine and I am absolutely delighted with the item. You described the gun very accurately and honestly and the quality and condition of the carbine has exceeded my expectations. It is absolutely genuine, authentic and the real deal.


      Throughout the process of buying, I appreciated your prompt time and attention in respect of my enquiries and will add you to my list of highly trusted dealers and peruse your website in future for items of French Napoleonic interest.


      Also, I will be happy to serve as a referee if new customers require a testimonial to buy with confidence.  


      Have a good weekend.


      Very best wishes,
