How Shardblades are Modelled off of Honorblades.

2 posts in this topic

It's said that shardblades are modelled after honourblades however it seems that shardblades are just what happens when a cognitive shadow (spren) manifest fully in the physical realm. It is the same material as in Honorblades.

Investiture made manifest.

So that being true it seems less that the bond is modelled after the herald honor bond and more that it was just inspired.

 

So if that's the case then why is it that shardblades form as swords.

Questioner

What was the reason for choosing the base form of Shardblades as blades, why not another form? Was it because of the spren?

Why was the base form of Shardblades chosen to as blades, as swords? It is because the Shardblades were devised... They were devised as imitations of the Honorblades, which were created and given to the Heralds. And so since the original pattern was the Honorblades, they were built to feel like the Honorblades.
