Bankenfuere was Berkthgar the Bold's large flamberge sword.[1]


The sword had a wavy 4-ft-long (1.2 m) blade with an 8-in-long (0.2 m) ricasso before the hilt and cross guard. Berkthgar carried his weapon in a shoulder sheath on his back.[1]


Around 1358 DR,[2] Berkthgar fought the famed Companion of the Hall Catti-brie with Bankenfuere in Settlestone to settle a disagreement Berkthgar had with Bruenor Battlehammer over Wulfgar's warhammer, Aegis-fang.[1]

After the battle, Berkthgar declared he would make a new legend of his sword, Bankenfuere the Northern Fury.[3] Catti-brie called the sword "Cow-killer".[4]
