The Wheel of Time turns and ages come and go… The Wheel of Time is a series of 14 fantasy novels by Robert Jordan. If you have never read them, you are really missing out. After he died in 2007, Brandon Sanderson finished the last three books in the series. Fans will be pleased to see this Heron marked blade from it’s pages come to life.

In the books, the greatest swordsmen are called Blademasters. That name means that they can carry Heron marked blades as a sign of their skill. You don’t mess with someone who carries one of these swords, because you will not win. And now an authentic and beautiful Heron marked blade exists in real life. Brendan Olszowy, a swordsmith in Western Australia, actually forged one.

In fact it is the sword of Moraine’s Warder, al’Land Mandragoran. It weighs 2 pounds, 14 ounces and the blade is 32.2 inches long. It is inscribed with words from the Old Tongue that translate to “True Blood of Manatheren” and “For the glory of the Red Eagle.” I would love to hang this sword in my home and brag to all my nerd friends.
