    Right now, in my collection, I'd say my favorite sword is my Albrecht II war sword from Windlass. It's a beautifully balanced hand and a half, not one of those fake ones that actually require two hands. A close second would be my Scottish backsword, also from Windlass. A tad bit weighty because of the higher POB (point of balance).

    Yeah, it's a Klingon d'k tahg. See my thread about it in the Fantasy Weapons and Armor board.

    I liked the sword in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Couple of nice weapons in there, I thought.

    Personally, I don't think there's any contest here. As long as you don't mind big, massive blades, the Atlantean sword from Conan the Barbarian is by far the best I've ever seen. Albion is also making those. Almost unbelievably expensive though.
