This is the sword of the infamous Vandergrift, given to Geralt by Saskia after she is cured of the poison. Allegedly, after he lost his first duel with Seltkirk due to a cracked sword, the commander was so angry that he hanged the smith who had made his sword and ordered a special one forged by Kaedwen's best mages and swordsmiths. It was named "Loa'then" (meaning "hatred" in the Elder Language). This second sword is the one Saskia had in her possession.
