Amoracchius is a heavy European broadsword, five feet long, sheated into a black leather scabbard, with a crusader-style hilt, bound in wire.. Its nail is worked into the hilt.(ref?) It gives off its own light when used in combat, can cut through many enchantments, and is an incredibly powerful object of faith.(ref?)
It can apparently be wielded by anyone,; the most recent people to do so Susan Rodriguez at Chichén Itzá and Michael Carpenter on a number of occasions. It circulates, however, less than the other two Swords, and is only used in times of great need.(ref?) its weakness is an action of hate, which will shatter it.
Before the end of Small Favor, it was wielded by Michael Carpenter, but was then held in guardianship by Harry Dresden until a new bearer could be found. After the events of Changes, it was in the possession of Murphy.

Inside the Temple of Kukulkan, Susan, at a key moment and under a veil, wields Amoracchius against the Red King cutting off his arm and stopping him from killing Maggie with the sacrificial knife.

Word of Butcher Edit
"The nails are visible--Harry does his best to convince himself that it's rust, not blood, on the nail in the hilt of Michael's sword in Grave Peril. They are worked in to the metal of the blade, at the base, just above the guard, point toward the end of the blade."
In the same forum post, the author describes Amoracchius as: "completely unadorned, pure function. Though it's possible that there may have been designs on the crossguard or hilt that have worn away over time."
Harry has good reason to believe that Amoracchius is actually the same sword as Excalibur, the last sword entrusted to a wizard (The Original Merlin).
At the 2011 Marscon Q&A session, Jim was asked when we would find out who the new wielder would be for Amoracchius and he responded with:
- "Amoracchius is gonna, uh…we’re gonna…(Jim chuckles evilly), that’s…that’s gonna be apocalypse time by the time Amoracchius comes off the shelf. Amoracchius is not one of those Swords that really rampages around the world very often, and when it does, you've heard about it, so…"
