My husband owns this combination rapier by Hanwei.
While the hilt is slightly oversize, the blade is very good and it is gold plated.

I've been looking for a really good quality early empire roman gladius....I'm always worried that whichever one I buy will have a rat tail tang and break easily...

That and a really good cutlass circa 16-1700s. I love the look of jack sparrows hanger but don't want to carry a jack sparrow sword as a pirate....maybe something along those lines though..

If you want a high end Roman blade, check out http://www.albion-swords.com.  The Fullham and Mainz blades are earlier roman blades more associated with the Republic but the Mainz was in use in the early first century AD.  The Pompei style gladius (The "Pedite") are from the 1st Century AD onward or "Early Empire".
For a less expensive alternative you could shop through www.soulofthewarrior.com.  None of his blades will have a rat tang as they are intended for demonstration and use for reenacting.

I don't have a picture but there was a UK tv show years ago called "The Wanderer" with Bryan Brown.  His character carried an Oakeshott type 19 sword with a ring on the guard on one side.  In the fuller right after the guard there was a citrine set.

Displayed at Two Rivers Faire Yuma, several months ago. Awesome blade!

It is not a sword, but I always liked Princess Buttercup's dagger and velvet lined box in The Princess Bride.
I would like to find a nice simple rapier like Inigo Montoya's, just not gold and gem stone, I like the El Cid type of sword, with a couple of simple changes.
I like Rapiers, just not 3-ringed and all that, I would like a simple handguard, and a flat grip and and flat coin-shaped pommel, basically a rapier that would lay almost flat against my hip.

While I don't see nearly as many, there are 'half basket' rapiers, thas have the same swept type guard, but it only goes to the one side, so as to not bounce on the hip, while still protecting the back of the hand. I'll see if I can find any pics.
