HistoryUsing the sword, the virtuous knight pierced the heart of Acathla, who then turned to stone. The sword remained stuck in the demon's chest and was entombed together with the demon. It would remain hidden until the demon's tomb was inadverdently uncovered by housing developers.
In 1998, Angel had his soul removed and planned to remove the sword to awaken Acathla. After several attempts, he finally managed to pull the sword out of the demon. Angelus used the sword in a duel against the slayer Buffy, who used a sword blessed by the virtuous knight. Angelus dropped the sword shortly before losing the battle and being ensouled by Willow.
Behind the Scenes
- The screen used "Sword of the Virtuous Knight" was made by Tony Swatton using various parts purchased from Toledo Swords of Spain that were then customised.
- Swatton later sold the rights to this sword to Factory X who then mass produced a sword they called "Angels Sword" that looked nothing like the screen used sword.
- The original screen used sword was available for rental for a number of years from Tony's Shop but shortly after the deal was made with Factory X it "disappeared".
