The Cold Sword is a manifestation of the Black Sword and the blade of Urlik Skarsol. It is referred to as "the whole sword", meaning it is not merely a shadow or diluted aspect of the Black Sword (Like Kanajana), but contains all of its power. As such, it is fully sentient and extremely malevolent, and like Stormbringer, will slay those it chooses at its own whim, presumably stealing their souls in the process. It is a huge black broadsword made of an alien black metal and inscribed with runes. It howls and screams as it is wielded and its blade is described as being horribly cold.
