Myths of the Norsemen From the Eddas and Sagas
Frey also received from the gods a marvellous sword (an emblem of the sunbeams), which had the power of fighting successfully,
and of its own accord, as soon as it was drawn from its sheath. Frey wielded this principally against the frost giants
he hated almost as much as did Thor
, and because he carried this glittering weapon, he has sometimes been confounded with
the sword-god Tyr or Saxnot.
