The Swords are famous among supernatural circles, and they are always seen in the hands of a Warden. No new swords have been issued since Luccio's body was stolen, and she lost her ability to make them. Dresden was made a Warden, he was never given a sword.
They are made of silver and are supernaturally sharp. Harry has seen them undo complex, powerful magic at the will of the wielder. On order to do so, they must be tailored specifically to each individual Warden. Donald Morgan's sword was also the symbol of the authority given to him by the White Council.
