The ninth and perhaps most unique of the Swords of the Ancients, the Avaquar is a stunning thing to behold.
The most notable thing about this weapon (and there are dozens of notable things, mind you)is probably the dual-set of blades that jut out from the split double-hilt. I realize there's a lot to digest in tht last sentence, so take your time. Okay. Ready? Alright, here we go...
The blades, loaded with engraved Runes of the Ancients, fork out from the hilt like mirror images. They're made from a durable 420 Stainless Steel and look absolutely amazing. The pattern of these two blades works on two different levels. Taken as they are, two blades mirroring one another, they convey a delicate-yet-rugged beauty; The spaces between them gives the sense of an almost Elven craftsmanship. On another level, the footprint of the two blades and the negative space between them gives the impression of a much larger, more powerful sword. This allows Kit Rae to create a sword that is both delicate and artistic, and yet fearsome at the same time.
The extended hilt of this sword continues this theme. It is split into two parts. The lower half (closer to the blade) is a smaller, reddish and ringed, and seems to pulse with hidden color. Below it is a longer section of tough, antiqued metal that is gilded with 'X' patterns reminiscent of crossed leather straps. The flared and gilded pommel at the end of the hilt bears a single oak-leafed spike (a rather ferocious touch).
Overall, this sword has the compact feel of a roman gladius, only much more lethal and exotic. The long hilt, sweeping blades and intricate details on this sword makes it difficult to stop staring.

SWORDS OF THE ANCIENTS COLLECTION
In the beginning of things in ages past there were the Ancient Ones, masters of flesh, fire, and steel, who forged the elements of which the land was made. When men and beasts came into the world the Ancient Ones purposed to have dominion over them, hence they commanded that the Dark Elves create the "Swords of the Ancients." They were forged of secret alloys and each sword was bequeathed its own special power. The swords have been used throughout the ages in the eternal struggle between good and evil.
Avaquar is the ninth sword and it holds power to control the waters and seas. The double blades are inscribed with an incantation in ancient runes. Its long hilt was fashioned with a lower grip carved of red thorcan, a powerful talisman of the Anath. The longer upper grip is wrapped in black skin of the venemous sea drake, a serpent from the ocean's depths.
Curious about the Assasin's Creed
? Ever wonder about the origin of the word 'Assassin
'? Well, lots of other people have. There's a big dispute about the actual etymology of the word, but one well-accepted theory is that it stems from the word hashish. As in, stick-some-in-my-hooka-and-smoke-it hashish. Apparently the assassins of the Middle East used to partake in the "kind bud" to soothe their nerves before eliminating a target. If you play Assassin's Creed
, or if you just admire the artwork, then you should probably know that Strongblade
carries plenty of gear from the game.
