Here are a few pics of the detailing on my husband's bastard sword.  We got this years ago from an aquaintance in the SCA who traveled the Faire circuit.  It's combat legal for Adrian Empires, though neither of us ever did any live steel combat, with a carbonized (I think that's what he said) blade to hold an edge better.  The hilt is steel with a leather grip.  My daughter was nice enough to hold it for the photos--it's almost as big as she is lol. 
It's too long to wear at the hip unless you're a giant, so my husband wears it in an over the shoulder belt.  The blade isn't a uniform width so a scabbard doesn't work, he just uses a leather frog.  Since the hilt is behind his shoulder, I got pretty good at tying peace knots lol.
