The first thing that comes to mind for me what what is your budget? From there we can have a better idea of where to direct you.

The Castillon Swords date from around 1450 which is right before the Wars of the Roses. The Albion Castellan would fit in, if you want to spend that much

There is a type XVa Albion Agincourt in stock over at KOA - possibly a little early, but I think it would still be OK for 1460 - http://www.kultofathena.com/product.asp?item=...ourt+Sword

You might want to look at some of the swords over at Valiant Armory - The Valor, The Arundel, The Marseille, The German - https://www.valiant-armoury.com/

Also, some of the Arms and Armot swords - https://www.arms-n-armor.com/collections/longswords

Thank you for the additional information Neti.

In addition to what Roger has listed you might also want to look at Lockwood Swords at http://lockwoodswords.com/product-category/medieval-swords/

Here is a Type XVIII hand and a half blade http://lockwoodswords.com/product/the-sl-1007...rd-900-00/

Here is a Type XVIIIb longsword [/url]http://lockwoodswords.com/product/the-sl-1009-medieval-sword-900-00/[url]

From what I have heard they do a good job at Lockwood and actually learned from Sonny Suttles at Valiant. Of course you do not get the scabbard as with Valiant, but I have heard tha the quality is approaching Albion levels at a lower cost.[/url]
