Sapphire Blade

From Emperor's Hammer Encyclopaedia Imperia


The blade itself is actually four blades fashioned from a deep blue sapphire found only on the world of Hela in the Phare system. The planet's harsh environment restricts mining of these gems to only one month per year. Since the supply is so limited, only the best of craftsmen work on the blades. Once created, it is affixed to a custom hilt at the climax of the award ceremony.
