can you still get swords?

i mean practical application swords. the kind that might be useful against zombies or after the apocalypse when ammo has started to run out.

i want one, just to have around.

know of any websites with such things?

Some places to look, that either have what you're looking for, or more information, in addition to the Underground's own History forum:
