Steading Sword

The Steading Swords are cold forged from ice taken from the heart of a glacier and worked by the magic of barbarian shamans from the Jarik Glacier. They appear as a slender, jagged edged shard of ice set into a leather wrapped pommel. They are razor sharp and no heat can harm them. Very few of these weapons exist. They are usually given to heroes of the Jars (prn. Haars, the people of the Jarik Glacier) who have served their tribe in some particularly daring fashion.
