Norse - The sword of Angantyr. This magic sword, made by the dwarfs, would slice through rock or metal, could fight of its own accord and needed to taste blood before it could be put back into its scabbard. It was buried with Angantyr when he died but his daughter, Hervor, used magic to force him to rise and hand the sword over to her. This weapon also appears in the story of Heithrek and Gestumblindi. In some lore, occasionally known as Tyrfing, Tyfing or Tyfing.
