This sword has a series of gnarled teeth instead of an edged blade. When it’s swung, the sword growls and snarls like a beast hungry for flesh. The Rending Sword is a hungry sword. If it isn’t fed at least once per day, the sword sprouts a pair of arms and legs and runs off to feast on its own, usually the companions of the wielder.[1a]


The Rending Sword is believed to have been created to reproduce a Chaos Weapon. Thought to have been first wielded by Samal the Cruel in 1477, many similar weapons have surfaced over the years. Whether these appearances are in actuality the same Rending Sword or not, no one knows for certain.[1a]
