Until you understand what a sword is, and what purpose it serves in a witcher's hand, you will not pick one up. You are not learning in order to kill and be killed. You are not learning to kill out of fear and hatred, but in order to save lives. Your own and those of others.
- Geralt to Ciri, pg. 108, Blood of Elves (U.S. edition)
A sword is a long, edged piece of metal, used as a cutting, thrusting, and clubbing weapon in many civilizations throughout the world. It is also the most prominent type of weapon in the Witcher saga. Geralt carries two swords: a steel sword and a silver sword. Also, many characters in the novels have their own, named swords:

While there are not many swords in The Witcher, it is still useful to note that there are different kinds. Below is a quick reference list:

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Edit

This sword is carried at Geralt's side, rather than on his back like most other swords.
