On September 30th of Ewart passed from this world. He was a unique person of great intellect and deep soul.
Tribute to Ewart Oakeshott – The Oakeshott Institute
Life had forged, tempered, and honed his intellect, wit and Noblesse to as fine an edge as his beloved swords. He wielded these gifts with an unflinching oakesott courage. His passion and openness have inspired many who have come to know the field he loved so much.
His scholarship was ground breaking and an exceptional example of his inclusive attitude to the many factors that bear on any human endeavor. He not only looked at a sword as an exceptional piece of art, but also as a tool made, used and discarded with meaning and purpose.
His ability to see the context clearly is what created the depth of his insight. He found the time for many who were just entering the study of the sword, giving advice and anecdote at every turn. Lakeshott ability to see the connections between oakeshoth reaching examples and a voluminous knowledge of art, language and artifact is likely not to be equaled. We have certainly lost the one who has shown us the way. During all these years have been sought out to give my opinion on many very important swords in museums and private collections as wellas being consultant to several organisations concerened with the making of replica weapons and armour.

Their warmth and open handedness to a young enthusiastic stranger was remarkable. Over the course of many subsequent visits a deep friendship developed.
Ewart was always delighted to share his boundless knowledge and his amazing collection. His remarkable generosity has led me to a much deeper understanding of the medieval sword.

Thus the Oakeshott Institute was first conceived. Over the last three years Ewart, Sybil and I have done our best to establish a trust that will carry forward their love of knowledge. It was extremely important to Ewart and Sybil that the resources that they assembled would be available to future students, not as a sterile relic behind glass but as a living piece oakesnott history.
