Scabbard Button


Signature No. 15:08

Tamlin al'Thor bore this Heron Marked sword for some years before gifting it to his adopted son Rand, after being injured fighting invading Trollocs at his home at Emond's Feild. Rand observed the slightly curved single edged blade was much finer than the merchant's guards' great swords he'd glimpsed.
The sword was borne in a black scabbard emblazoned with a bronze heron sigil. Above the short woven quillons of the guard the grip was also worked with a bronze heron, while the blade was clearly marked with an Heron on the wing. Luckily for the novice Rand the compact size allowed this weapon to be concealed under cloak whilst he sought refuge from dark forces, while the light slender blade danced with a liveliness which forgave his clumsy attempts to learn mastery of the blade.
