Weapons prized by warriors and wielded with pride. To the warrior cultures of the dark ages, the sword was the very epitomy of honour and status. Songs and sagas were composed about swords and the mythical status of the warrior kings who wielded them. Swords would be passed down from generation to generation, given names and venerated as sacred objects.
