Excalibur Brothers is the collective endeavor of Marsha and Lawrence Piper. We founded this company on the principle of a good product at a reasonable price and a reasonable profit.
In the true spirit of American Entrepreneurship when the time arrived to start a legitimate online business we chose to specialize in swords and knives.
Why swords and knives? We both are avid readers and have been our entire lives. Swords have been prominent in much of the literature we have read and they hold a certain mystic to this day that makes you feel good when you hold one. I had always wanted to purchase a sword but never seemed to get around to it. Yet while Marsha was raising her children she had bought her 2 sons a variety of production knives over the years. She knew their value as a "feel good" gift.
For Christmas 2000 Marsha gave me my first sword.
At that moment I was hooked. I knew I had to get more even if only a few at a time.
Fast forward to Fall 2003.
After using the internet to study the fields of internet marketing and e-commerce (for almost 2 years) we decided to start our own company.
Here you see the product; Excalibur Brothers.com
We thought of several ideas for a product to offer and finally decided on something we both like and feel others will like as well. We hope you agree.
We have several of these items in our own home and have given several more as gifts. We know first hand not only their quality but also the look a person gets when they open one of these beautifully crafted swords and knives.
We hope you enjoy your visit here and find something of value or interest to your needs. If there is a specific item you are looking for please contact us and we will attempt to find it or check out our link pages for a variety of related items.
In order to better serve you we have added a toll free # (877) 496-8152.
We also added 2 more online payment options, American Express and Discover.
This brings the total number of online payment options to 5.
Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover & PayPal.
Orders can continue to be sent via the postal service or fax as well.
Excalibur Brothers has continued to grow. We now enjoy several coveted postions in the search engines and we want to thank all of our customers and visitors. Without you and your constant support we couldn't be here. Starting this month you'll find a selection of higher quality carbon steel swords by Cold Steel and CAS Iberia.
These swords are not just for display but are fully function and have been hardened using traditional claying methods. We hope you enjoy this new selection of high end high quality swords and knives.
We have added a new "Live Chat" feature that allows visitors to text chat with us live rather than having to use the telephone. It seems to have proven very popular and we hope you get the chance to use it the next time you need to speak with us.
It seems hard to believe almost another 5 years has past since we decided to revisit this page and update it. We have just upgraded our storefront to a new and improved version. After almost 8 years in business the internet has change and grown in ways that couldn't have been predicted. "Web 2.0" has brought a lot of interaction between user and website and our store was beginning to look like it wasn't keeping pace with technology.
Thankfully our internet hosting and store design company has upgraded their system to allow us to offer many new features our customers have been asking for. You can now add items to a wish list, gift certificates are now available, you can create an account that saves your shipping and billing address (we do not store credit card information), and new easy to use drop down navigation.
We thank you again for all your support and look forward to serving you in the coming days, months and years.
