NobleWares YouTube Channel

NobleWares YouTube Channel

We are pleased to announce that we have an official NobleWares YouTube Channel!

The channel initially started with some quick test videos for some US Civil War pieces late last year. Since then, we here at NobleWares have been expanding with more videos. The goal of the channel is to provide better representations of products that don’t seem to shine as well from our still product photography. It is important for us to best represent a product to a potential customer; which is difficult to do through a tiny computer screen. We want you to feel as if you have picked up the item with your own virtual hands and enjoy all the intricate details many of our products have to offer. We also simply want to showcase some of our favorite items for sale as well as have some fun.

To give an idea of where our channel is headed, our current favorites videos include the Marto 370 God of Fire Katana and the entertaining How-To assemble the Sword Antler Stand (featuring a cameo from Wesley, the newest member of the NobleWares family).

Please consider subscribing to our YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGLNd9OvLj7ocM0nWpsEziA and let us know what you think of the new videos. All viewer feedback and comments are greatly appreciated!
