Abhorsen's sword was created by the Wallmaker. There is a dull emerald in the pommel, the cross-guard is worn and plated in bronze, and the blade is etched with Charter symbols. The usual inscription reads "I was made for Abhorsen, to slay those already Dead," but sometimes the marks are strange, and at least once the inscription read "The Clayr saw me, the Wallmaker made me, the King quenched me, Abhorsen wields me."

This sword was in the bag that Terciel sent to Sabriel at school, along with a set of Abhorsen's bells and the Book of the Dead.
