Father’s Sword | 2013 | Electro-etched Steel and Leather

The words, “You will bear your father’s sword” are etched into the steel of this sword. In the 1982 film Conan the Barbarian, Conan’s father speaks to him about the Riddle of Steel:

The secret of steel has always carried with it a mystery. You must learn its riddle, little Conan. You must learn its discipline. For no one, no one in this world can you trust. Not men, not women, not beasts. [Points to sword] This you can trust.
