Rebated swords

Can anyone point me to supplier(s) of rebated steel swords for the period (European/North American 1710-1810), I'm looking for off the shelf and ideally inexpensive.

Come from a vike/medieval background, and I'm not even certain what I should be looking for to get us started. We are aiming for military edged combat rather than dueling in and around the period (specifics are French colonial marine 1720's & locally raised irregular militia 1815) we can live with a bit of plausible anachronism and lower-end reproductions (a plausible earlier re-used sword or a job lot of plain naval surplus will do for starters). Start-up costs are a bit of a concern (or I would just go custom from Armour Class or Paul Binns) as this is the first foray into this kind of thing for a lot of the participants.

AC do a nice generic 'dragoon sword' and a Brit RN Cutlass with a plain guard (dragoon sword is on their website..the cutlass isn't).
