blades aint a manufacturer just a reatailer but if its a big sword your after try the cold steel
grosse messer not sure if theres any others at buks check out any others in the cold steel section
you could allways contact lawrence and see if he has any others you might fancy the cold steel
grosse messer is a real handfull and if its owt like mine sharp as s**t too if its to small try the paul chen
lowlander or the paul chen claymore

EDIT
Well I own the Windlass Steel crafts English two handed long sword

I have already poked a few holes in the roof just trying to wield the thing inside the house.

I don't know how well the sword holds up on its functionality (the blade is quite thin which makes the blade somewhat too flexible and can be bad for big powerful cuts) as I have heard mixed reviews and feelings towards windlass steelcraft's but for a price of £208, it was worth getting just for a cheap Great Sword. It said it was based on a genuine sword stored in the royal armories so It's historical accurate enough for me.

The standard hanwei claymore (not the lowlander) is the same price as my sword so its really a decision of which one you like the look of.
