I was wondering if any one had any specifications (such as blade length, hilt length, etc.) on a large bearing sword (about 91 inches from pommel to point) that is now in the collection of the Tower of London. I believe it was made for either King Henry V or Edward, Prince of Wales?

Do you mean this one:



It could have been made for Henry IV or Henry V.

Below is text from "Treasures from the Tower of London: Arms and armour".
