Callandor

** Callandor **


    "That blade, apparently glass, would cut as well as the finest steel, yet Callandor truly was not a sword, but instead a remnant of the Age of Legends, a sa'angreal. <TSR: 2, 84, Whirlpools in the Pattern>

"A crystal sword with a curved blade, it is the only sa'angreal known to be made in the form of a weapon." <RJWoT: 4, 44, The Fall into Shadow> It "... seemed made of glass, or perhaps crystal, blade and hilt and crossguard, catching such light as there was and shattering it into a thousand glitters and flashes." <TDR: 4, 72, Shadows Sleeping> Rand uses it with either one or two hands <TDR: 55, 653-66, What Is Written in Prophecy; TSR: 10, 195-200, The Stone Stands>, not unlike Tam's sword. One-handed use suggests that it is no longer than about 42"; two-handed use suggests an approximately 6" hilt.

At present, there is little more to say, though undoubtedly it will play a larger role in the very near future ...
