The Common Sword

The Common Sword was a weapon obtainable during the Italian Renaissance, which was notable for being the first sword that the Assassin Ezio Auditore received.

Finding the sword in one of his father's chests, the young man took it with him to the Auditore execution.[1] However, the sword was disarmed from him by a brute, and was left behind when Ezio fled the area.[1] Later, Ezio was gifted a similar blade by his uncle Mario upon his arrival in Monteriggioni in 1476.[1]

In 1500, when the army of Cesare Borgia attacked Monteriggioni, an older Ezio used a Common Sword again in the town's defense, due to the loss of the Sword of Altaïr in the wreckage of the Villa Auditore.[2] Following this, Ezio continued to use the sword in conjunction with the Hidden Gun, for an unspecified length of time after his arrival in Rome.[2]

The Common Sword was an easy weapon for anyone to come by at this point in time. It was cheap, both to manufacture and to buy. It was used mainly as a means of self defense, especially by potential assassin recruits in Rome. This was also the sword that the guards used the most. Because of the easy accessibility and cheap make, the Common Sword paled in comparison to nearly every other weapon avalible.
