Sword Collector Calls Columbus Home

COLUMBUS – Meet Tim Ott, a Columbus resident who just so happens to enjoy collecting swords in his free time.

“I’ve been chasing swords since I was probably 12 years old. It has been an enjoyable hobby. Over a period of time, you get to know people, you get to hear their stories of how things were obtained. You get to meet new friends, and you get friends who teach you,” said Ott.

For Ott, he has a knack for collecting what others might not want.

“Whatever you find in people’s closets you just tend to want to add to your own collection,” said Ott.

With a wide collection of swords already in his possession and no plans of stopping soon, Ott will continue to do what he has done since he was a little kid.
