    I'd like to have a proper shield and sword above my fireplace any ideas on price realistic looking set? I'd wager pretty expensive.

    A genuine historical sword or a reproduction/modern one?
    What style, historical era or fictional/fantasy?

    Why not post a picture of what you want.
    There's literally unlimited combinations of shield and sword?

    Me I'd have a Roman scutum and gladius.

    Look on the Armourclass website, they make swords for reenactors as well as sharps. Based in Glasgow.

    Did you just assume both the gender and race of the poster? Check your thinking!

    Modern replica swords can cost £2K for a well made museum quality one, so "modern replica" doesn't rule out "big bucks". That's for a plain sword, not a fancy sword with elaborate decorations in gold and gems to display your wealth.

    I think you'd need to narrow things down a bit first. There have been a lot of swords and a lot of shields. Obviously you're after a one-handed sword (due to the shield), but what time period and what location?
