I've been commissioned to make a sword like the massive weapon in St. George's Chapel, Windsor.
Apart from a few distant pictures, the overall length, and my customer's clandestine hilt measurement, I have little to work from. Is anyone able to point me to any published research on this sword?

Thanks in advance.

You mean this one? This is the best image I have found.

Strangely, the Royal Collection doesn't have this sword in their online catalogue.

There's a short page here:

The Book The Romance of St. George's Chapel mentions the sword, and has a picture:

Thanks for your findings Richard, that's the one. As it was of similar size. I looked at the Pier Gerlofs Donia sword for a few clues. This job is certainly a challenge.
