Also I would like to know the most inexpensive way to make it my limit in price for all is $60

All the 1 handed swords I've been making usually round out around $50 in materials (usually highest cost is paint and primer...).

You can use wood, bevel out the edges with a power sander, file or even a rasp then you can add detailing to the hilt with more wood or, preferably, styrene or PVC plastic. I'll link more in depth articles that I have written about my sword making, but that should be a fairly straightforward project.

Hope that helps! Happy cosplay!
