I am looking at purchasing a sword for my late 12th early 13th century living history impression. I am aiming at portraying a Sicilian Norman knight, as well as putting together a Templar impression from the same period. The sword is, as always, a linchpin of the offensive kit. I am dedicated to historical accuracy, but cost is a factor. I am willing to spend money but not break the bank. I am familiar with the common sellers (Albion, as well as re-sellers). Any direction on a proper sword and scabbard would be appreciated.
