The sword was one of the most used weapons of war throughout history, possibly as far back as 3000 BCE. It started as a decorative, ceremonial, and class-defining weapon that was an extension of the smaller knife or dagger. With time and technological advancements, the sword became one of the most preferred weapons of combat for many cultures.
