Sword forging..

Hey on the coming month my grandpa is celebrating his 70th birthday. I was on the hunt for a perfect gift for him.
Finally, I've got the plan and have o implement it soon. My grandfather is fond of antique items and metal showpieces, so I'm going to present him a sword. I've done a bit reading on this and found it will take up to 2 weeks to forge a sword. My colleague suggested forging manufacturers near her residence. I'm not sure whether they are going to work on these retail items, because when I checked their website they seem to be very professional! It is ok because it is the second thing first I've to decide which kind of sword should I design-a greatsword or a long sword?
Absolutely confused, any suggestion moms??!!
