Hardedge in Final Fantasy VII.

This straight-bladed sword looks like a bar of solid iron and is about as subtle.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift description

The Hardedge (ハードブレイカー, Hādo Bureikā?, lit. Hard Breaker) is a recurring weapon in the Final Fantasy series. It is a sword, more often than not, a greatsword. A hard-hitting weapon, it is usually a weaker or average weapon in among the other swords in its class. It often confers an immunity to Doom.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Final Fantasy VII[edit | edit source]

The Hardedge is a weapon for Cloud. It can be bought in Junon (disc 1) and Gongaga (all discs) for 1,500 gil, and stolen from a SOLDIER:3rd during the visit to Shinra Headquarters. It has Attack power of 32, Hit rate of 96, Magic power of 6, and normal Materia growth with four Materia slots, two of them linked.

The blade has the kanji (一刀両断, Ittō ryōdan?, lit. one-bladed bisection) written on it, a Japanese term for "cutting into two with a single stroke".
