If you're ever in the Pittsburg (Pennsylvania) area, stop by Aikido Seishinkan
and talk to David Goldberg there. He's a swordmaker and I've personally seen some of the work he's done -- very creative and well done (in my not-so-trained eyes).
You might also want to try contacting Bob Elder at East Coast Martial Art Supplies
. Although I don't think he's involved in making swords himself, he does have a lot of connections in the iaido/kenjutsu world and might be able to help you out.
Hope that helps!
