Sword of Freya
Sword of Freya: Freya is the Norse goddess of love (related to Aphrodite and Venus), but in the many mythology web sites, there are no mentions of her sword. Most cite her chariot pulled by two blue cats across the sky. However, the heavy metal group Sword has a track called Freya that mentions a sword.
The knife was like the Sword of Freya in her belt.
