Here's a recent piece that I am limiting to only five pieces ladies and gentlemen. Number one is already gone. For full info you can check my blog (http://www.forgedintime.com/bladesmithing-blog/2011/06/the-falcon-medieval-sword/)
This isn't a repro of a particular piece but is one that I consider sort of a "well, maybe, coulda been" kind of sword. Here are some specs:

The blade is 34.75 inches long, 2 inches wide at the guard and 0.24 inches thick at the guard. The overall length is 44.5 inches and the weight without scabbard is 3 pounds and 7 ounces.

The fuller runs approximately one third of the length of the flattened diamond blade which tapers to a fine stabbing point. The center of percussion is at 21.75 inches from the guard. The secondary node of percussion is about 0.5 inches above the guard on the grip.

The blade is hand forged 5160 steel marquenched to an edge hardness of about 52-54 HRC and drawn back to a 47-48 on the spine and the tang/shoulders are drawn back to the mid 30's. The guard and pommel are handmade from 1020 mild steel. The guard is 8 inches wide and the pommel is 2 inches in diameter and 15/16 inches thick. The grip is an ash core in a modified hock-bottle profile with four studs on either side and wrapped in supple black leather with a stitched seam. The grip is 7 inches long.

Feedback and Inquiries welcome.

For those that are interested, number 2 has now been sold; only three more of these will ever be made.
