Most Bourque-like curve on the market today

I used to use a Bourque curve on my Sherwood 5030 sticks…

But of course that's no longer produced.

Can anyone tell me if there is a blade out there that is very similar, regardless of manufacturer, whether it's a one-piece, composite, wood, etc.?

Do you have a picture of it or can you describe it?

Looks pretty flat. Try a Malkin

Yeah, the pictures you just posted are Malkin's and Bourque's pro stock blades. When you by sticks you don't get the curve they use. They just use their names.

my gf used to use those Sherwood Bourque sticks. when she switched to OPS she found Warrior's Federov curve (now named Savard) to be the closest she could find, particularly in the lie of the stick.

According to this helpful chart, you might consider a Coffey, Thornton, Yzerman or Lidstrom. Depending on what aspects you liked most.

Nash and lidstrom got the same feeling when it's time for slap shot.

For Bourque go with a Thornton or a Gagne

Bad news is there was no replacement for Bourque. Fedorov and Robitalle by Warrior the closest, but have round toes and 4 and 5 for lie respectively (4.5 is for Bourque). Reebok has new pattern for this year called HEDMAN (P40). Based on the spec., it should be as close as it gets to old Bourque.

Have you tried Savard?

It's a relatively flat mid-curve with a slightly closed face and a low lie (4.5) (I don't like most patterns nowadays because they're so curvy). It also has a square toe but that's a lower priority.

I use the Coffey

Just to make sure of accuracy. I use the Coffey and it is a hook and a half compared to the Bourque blade. Possible the Statsny blade might be closer. I am contacting Sherwood to ask them.
