It's not that great,but you can buy it from the shop called A Fighting Chance in the market district of the imperial city.

The best ones in my opinion are Umbra and Goldbrand, but both are rewards from certain quests.

Look here: http://www.uesp.net/w/index.php?title=Oblivion:Oblivion You'll find descriptions how to find Umbra and Goldbrand.
The honor-blade of Chorrol is also quite nice becasue it's weightless. But it doesn't have any enchantments.
The umbra can be obtained from an ayleid ruin called Vindasel,which is over the left bridge on the tiny island south of the imperial city.Here's a map showing it's exact location.The ruin is number 17.
The goldbrand can also be found by completing the daedric lord Boethia's quest,which you must be level 20 to accept.To get it you have to cpmete in a tournament against one of every race of human in the game (excluding your race,be it argonian,high elf etc.)The location is east of the red river,point 9 on this map.

I killed Umbra at level 2...because I cheated...but who cares I got a great sword and great armor! Hah...God mode rules!!!! Note: I only used it for that battle haven't used it for anything else...except the arena...besides its not even on my own game...its on my friends computer, when I do get my own copy though I'll play it without cheats the first couple characters...
You don't even need god mode to beat her.A few of the pillars in her area have the support beams missing,meaning you can hop on top and cast spells at her until she dies,and she'll never be able to fight back.

The only spell I have is flare, its weak...I'm an Imperial Knight...so I really only use Illusion type spells. Its was damn hard even when I was using god mode, It took me a couple minutes to figure out the best way to beat her...I used this drain fatigue 100 points, it came with my character at the start, so I just kept casting it...and she kept falling down so i'd use power attacks....you the deal...rinse, lather, repeat and shes dead! So I got her armor and the sword but I couldn't find the sheild, I don't think it was a bound sheild cause it didn't look like a daedric one and she did use it alot...so it could be broken but I couldn't find it...hmmm...its golden I believe...should I go back and cast light then look for it?
No,for some strange reason Umbra's shield always dissapears after you kill her.There doesn't seem to be an specific reason for it dissapearing,so it may be a glitch that is triggered no matter what when you kill her.
