The name “Nothung” (Modern German Notung = “Child of Need”) comes from Richard Wagner’s Ring Cycle, in which it is the sword of the hero Siegfried. The name was invented by Wagner, replacing the names for the hero’s sword found in Wagner’s sources, the Norse Edda andVölsungasaga (Gram = “wrath”) and in the medieval GermanNibelungenlied (Balmung = “destruction”).

Hail and well met! This is Guthbrand, and I have a few requests for you all…
1. Lately, JDDJS and I have been the only ones who post. I’m asking for new members; preferably people who understands swords, and are able to answer questions about how certain blades function.
2. I’m considering a name change. This blog has outgrown the name “Fyeahswords”. The main reason is that some people (myself included) are uncomfortable with having the F word in the title, and I think people will take us more seriously with a more professional sounding name. Thoughts?
3. Since this is no one’s main blog, we may sometimes accidentally post something meant for another blog on here. If you ever notice something on here not pertaining to weaponry, please let us know!
May your sword ever stay sharp!
