Lets start of the reference section with swords, since they're so popular. Instead of showing the full sword, I focused on the hilts of various types swords to give you some detailing ideas.

English Swords
There are various English swords from Hunting Swords, Broadswords, Rapiers, Backswords, and Cross-hilted Swords. Some of these are rather fancy and some are plain. Remember, what's important is that you take some ideas and features of the sword you like and imcorporate it into your own weapon and make it your own!
