Sword for a handicapped HEMA practitioner

Howdy! My name is Kurtis Schulte and I'm here today to ask you all for assistance in helping my best friend, Gabriel Pottebaum, get one of his favorite swords for his college graduation. Gabe was born with this thing called Poland's syndrome, which is a syndrome that affects the muscles in one half of the body. For him it's the right side of his torso and arm, but this has never stopped him from participating in one of his many passions. Gabe is an incredible practioner of HEMA (Historical European martial arts,) and is one of the best sword fighters I've met in my entire life. He's currently after a degree in anthropology and archeology, and is bent on becoming a professor in this field of science. I want to help him get this sword as a graduation gift, and I'd greatly appreciate any and all assistance you could give me. Thank you, and have a blessed day. https://youtu.be/zapMHwDrttc
