Final Fantasy Brave Exvius[]

A sword brought from the distant world of Ivalice. The blade is covered in detailed engravings, while the sword as a whole shines dully. It is perhaps most notable for its squared tip. While it is apparently merely a replica of a famous Ivalician holy sword, it boasts a tremendously sharp edge almost on par with the real thing.

Description, FFXII

A large sword once wielded by a great hero. It's [sic] name means the immortal blade. There is a story about a hero who, when on the brink of death, in order for the durandal not to fall in enemy hands slammed it to the floor which actually caused the floor to split open. It is unclear whether or not this anecdote is true, but there is no denying the pin-point sharpness this holy blade boasts.
