The Sword of Mercy, or Edward the Confessor's Sword, is a symbolically broken sword that is part of the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom. The sword has a blade cut off short and square, indicating thereby the quality of the mercy of the sovereign; according to the mythological history of the sword, its tip was broken off by an angel to prevent a wrongful killing.
It is one of five swords used during the coronation of the British monarch. It is carried in the coronation procession between the Sword of Temporal Justice and the Sword of Spiritual Justice. These three swords are believed to have been made for the coronation of Charles I of England, and were among the few items of the crown jewels to escape being melted down by Oliver Cromwell.
The sword is also wielded during the ceremony at which the monarch bestows knighthood upon the recipient of the honour.

A little while ago I received a free katana from Swords of the East

They wanted me to review it for this blog. In the next few days, I’ll post pictures of it and information of about it. However, for now, I’ll post a little about it. The sword is beautiful. Not only does it have a nice sheath made out of wood., but it also came in a very nice box and even a cloth to wrap it in. Overall I really like the sword, and would definitely recommend buying from Swords of the East. As the week goes on, I’ll talk about the sword in more details.
