4 Dot Artifact

An unusual solar weapon. This saber is forged in the southern style with an edge of Orichalcum and a core of Moonsilver. While Ali Akbar Davar never gave the blade a name, others called it "Durendal" or "To Endure" for it is said that nothing can break the blade.

The weapon is completely indestructible and is considered one of the wonders of the First Age. It is widely known as the first artifact by Solar hands that are indestrucible1. Ali's allies praised his genius, while the skeptical whispered that he stole the secrets from the Jade Born. His enemies however claim that he consorted with the Yozis. Ali went to his grave without ever setting the record straight and his reincarnations have no memories of it.
