    Sad news was passed to me last night.

    Wilkinson Swords... the finest swords crafted since 1772 has recently announced the closure of their plant in England. The plants closure has been set for September of this year and on that day, they will cease production.

    Not only did Wilkinson manufactor swords but they were the top producer of rifles in the 1800's and on. They were directly connected to the Monarchy and have always been presenting new swords to them, the most recent being the Queens jubilee year.
