What's your budget? A good, forged sword will run you at least $400. And how tall is she? There's a formula for blade length versus height.

Just an FYI, the "katana" available at the RenFest are usually brittle stainless steel, which is fine for decorations but will snap if you use it.

I have personally ordered from both of these and they are reputable options.

Paul chen Hanwei, Ronin Dojo pro and Cold steel are probably the least expensive with a useable 1060 blade. I own a Hanwei, and it holds up well enough, used it for forms and Tameshigiri in a class years ago. The sky is the limit on price, especially once you get into damascus, but anything stainless will be dangerously brittle, cheaper steel or poor heat treatments will get damaged easier.

I acquired this one while I lived in MD but don't remember who made it. Replica of a Viking or Frankish sword from the Viking age. No real point but the double edge is very sharp. I sometimes take it out and chop down bushes. Never seems to lose its edge.
