Congrats, I have a two-handed greatsword replica from 14th Century. It is in storage, small children a swords don't mix. Man I miss having it around to swing though.
Now don't go lopping your toes off. No Joke, way back when I was 13, one of my friends lopped his pinky toe off with a sword. It was not a replica, so it was pretty durn heavy, mid-swing his wrist gave out and off he went to the hospital to get his toe sewn back on. Pretty yucky and we both were grounded for a few weeks.
After a long absence, I have returned. I can't wait to start building again.
