Faithful replica of medieval sword. — In-game description

The Sword is arguably the best melee weapon in DayZ Standalone. It does about as much damage as a Firefighter Axe. It is also much more durable than a Firefighter Axe when it comes to use in combat, however many players prefer axes as their primary melee weapon since they can be used to chop wood and takes up less inventory space.
