Bloodwood : a rare wood used by the Tiste Edur

 

BH, UK TPB, glossary

'The secret groves of bloodwood...'

 

HoC, UK MMPB, p.144

'...the grey, weathered wood was bloodwood - bleached by centuries of neglect.'

 

HoC, UK MMPB, p.151

 

traditionally treated with blood-oil

 

used in the creation of:

 

 

Bloodwood Sword

 

'His (Karsa Orlong's) bloodwood sword hung in its harness...newly oiled, the Uryd warcrest freshly painted on the broad blade...the sword's leather-wrapped two-handed grip jutting over his left shoulder.'

 

HoC, UK MMPB, p.40

'Karsa unslung his bloodwood sword, closing both hands around the leather-wrapped grip. The blade's wood was deep red, almost black, the glassy polish making the painted warcrest seem to float a finger's width above the surface. The weapon's edge was almost translucent, where the blood-oil rubbed into the grain had hardened, coming to replace the wood. There were no nicks or notches along the edge, only a slight rippling of the line where damage had repaired itself, for blood-oil clung to its memory and would little tolerate denting or scarring....The broad, tapered sword point...'

 

HoC, UK MMPB, p.53-4

Sergeant Cord: 'So here's one of the famed wooden swords. So hard it breaks Aren steel.'

 

Shard: 'Look at the edge...It's that resin they use that makes that edge -'

 

Cord: 'And hardens the wood itself, aye.'

 

HoC, UK MMPB, p.158

 

Blood-oil treatment

 

'...their weapons across their thighs, rubbing the thick blood-oil into the blades'

 

HoC, UK MMPB, p.54)

 

 

Bloodwood Armour

 

'...an almost complete set of armour that, although of a style Karsa had never seen before, was clearly Teblor in origin, given its size and the sigils burned into the wooden plates...he realized that the grey, weathered wood was bloodwood - bleached by centuries of neglect.'

 

HoC, UK MMPB, p.151
