Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

The Iron Sword (Japanese: 鉄の剣 Iron Sword) is the most basic sword-type weapon in the Fire Emblem series. It is not very powerful, and has no special powers or qualities whatsoever. However, it is cheap, durable, easy to find and easy to wield, making it a useful resource at the beginning of any journey. It is also fairly light, making it relatively easy for characters to strike twice with it per turn. The Iron Sword has appeared in every Fire Emblem game to date, with the exception of Fire Emblem Gaiden.
