Ritchey Pro Road Handlebars measuring 46cm c-t-c and they are great. Plenty strong and light too. I think I got them from Nashbar but don't see them there now (in that width).

Good luck. They are great bars.

I have a couple of cheap Nashbar bars in 46 and 50 (!), but they're a little flexible. Rivendell has a bunch of good Nitto bars for around $50, and I think some of them come in 46.
I like the Salsa bars with the flared dropsB2

AE Bike has the Salsa Moto Ace Bell Lap for $26. I think Excel has them for abut $30. They come in 42 - 46cm c-t-c. The drops flare an additonal 6cm so you may not want to get the 46's though.

I have some on my commuter bike and find them very comfortable.

I have a set of these in 46 c-c and they are great. Not the lightest, but they are a good bar. Not the easiest to find, though.

I've been using Deda Magic/Newton stem combo for the past two seasons and I'm very happy with both. The only downside of the Magic 31.7 bars is that it complicates mounting a cyclocomputer. I had mine attached to my stem and recently changed to a Sigma computer with the rubber band handlebar mount system and it works fine. Or you can just use a zip lock tie to secure the mounting bracket. But- back to your original question-Deda Magic makes a 46 cm bar.
