Nick Glynne's sword of a thousand resellers

The phrase "live by the sword, die by the sword" has been taken a little too literally by Nick Glynne, boss at Hudders field-based retailer Buy It Direct.

The phrase "live by the sword, die by the sword" has been taken a little too literally by Nick Glynne, boss at Huddersfield-based etailer Buy It Direct.

He has engraved the names of the rivals he reckons his company has put out of business on a sword, though it is not clear if this is a fencing foil or a scimitar.
