This particular short sword is no different than any other apart from its sentimental value to the halfling Perdue, who may be found in the Red Sheaf Inn in Beregost. To complete the subquest, bring this sword to him. This item appears in Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition.
|“||The short sword is the first type of sword to come into existence. In the simplest of terms, a short sword can be considered a dagger with a blade so long it can no longer be called a dagger. The term short sword does not exist in sword classifications. However, it has come to be used to describe a double-edged blade about two feet in length. The sword tip is usually pointed, ideal for thrusting.||”|
