Kris Cutlery also makes an early viking pattern for under $300. A real shield-splitter. Simple but good looking.

Joel

if you need a 2mm edge for reenactment combat I would suggest either a Paul Binn's (not Paul Chen) or an Armor Class blade. I own one of each (Norman and Viking) and they handle nice and look great. Viking shield, the link above, sells both.
