Stuff I found abt 1H and 2H swords
Single-handed
- Bronze Age swords, length ca. 60 cm, leaf shaped blade.

- Iron Age swords like the xiphos, gladius and jian 劍, similar in shape to their Bronze Age predecessors.

- The classical arming sword of Medieval Europe, measuring up to ca. 110 cm.

- The late medieval Swiss baselard and the Renaissance Italian cinquedea and German Katzbalger essentially re-introduce the functionality of the spatha, coinciding with the strong cultural movement to emulate the Classical world.

- Light duelling swords, like the rapier and the smallsword, in use from Early Modern times.

- The Japanese short sword, or wakizashi

Crocea Mors
Crocea Mors (Latin for "Yellow Death") was the name given to Julius Caesar's sword, according to the legends presented by Geoffrey of Monmouth. In Middle Welsh versions, it is called Angau Coch ("Red Death") or Agheu Glas ("Grey Death").

The British prince Nennius acquired it when, during single combat with Caesar, it got stuck in his shield. It killed everyone Nennius struck with it. Nennius died fifteen days after the battle of a head wound inflicted by Caesar, and the sword was buried with him

Fragarach
In Irish mythology, Fragarach, known as 'The Answerer' or 'The Retaliator' was the sword of Manannan mac Lir and Lugh Lamfada. Manannan wielded it as his weapon, before passing it on to Lugh (his foster son). It was said to be a weapon that no armour could stop.

Forged by the gods, it was given to Cúchulainn by Lugh, and later to Conn of the Hundred Battles

Fragarach also appears in the following:

Fragarach appears as a magic sword in the World of Greyhawk campaign setting for the Dungeons & dragons role-playing game.

In Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow, a low class sword bears the name Fragarach. It is said to be a demonic sword, and can be fused with souls of monsters to create either a holy sword called Mystletain, or a toxic sword named Hrunting.

In Fate/hollow ataraxia, Bazett's main skill is called Fragarach. She uses it as a retaliation when her opponent initiates his strongest move, performing a thrust that pierces his chest.

In Tactics Ogre: The Knight of Lodis, Fragarach is one of the four Netherworld Weapons, and the third most powerful sword in the game. Its description reads "Sword with a cross-shaped hilt whose name means 'revenge'."

In Brigandine: The legend of forsena, Answeller (a corruption of answerer when translated to Japanese and back) is a holy sword wielded by the knight Guinglain.

In A Wizard Abroad, the fourth book in the Young Wizard Series, Fragarach appears as a magic sword that can choose its wielder.

In Baldur's Gate: Throne of Bhaal 'The Answerer' is a sword wielded by a tethyrian general that attempt to slay the protaginist, its abilities include the ability to lower the targets magical resistance with each strike.

This one is quite popular in Norway(my country):

Garm
In Norse mythology, Gram was the name of the sword that Sigurd (Siegfried) used to kill the dragon Fafnir. It was forged by Weyland the Smith and originally belonged to his father, Sigmund, who received it in the hall of the Volsung after pulling it out of a log into which Odin had stuck it—nobody else could pull it out. The sword was destroyed and reforged at least once. After it was reforged, it clove an anvil in half. See Sigurd for more details on the story of Siegfried and Fafnir.

In the Nibelungenlied, Siegfried's sword is called Balmung; in Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle, it is called Nothung.

I simply liked the translation of my sword's name Twisted Evil
There is a list of translated sword names in my runes book, if I can find it . . .
Fragarach - wonder how that's pronounced?
Hrunting - that name sounds familiar . . . perhaps from Beowulf?
Gram, short and brutal name for a sword.

It would sem that there is some debate about the runic translation I got my sword's name from Sad Also a lil interesting history on the instription itself.
Arrow The instricption was from a sword found on the Isle of Wight, and the runes were on the innerside of the silver scabbard mount, thus hidden. The translator mis-read a rune as "s".
