Aerondight is a silver sword used in fighting monsters, and is relatively ineffective against humans. It can be received only in Chapter IV.

In The Paths of Destiny, according to a quest phase titled "The Sword", the blade is exceptional: "light, sharp as a razor, and fits the hand neatly". In the same entry, it is said that the blade "has a destiny of its own. Time will tell what that destiny is". Possibly referencing a sword with a similar name that was given to Lancelot by the Lady of the Lake in Arthurian legends.

Can neither be bought nor sold

Spoiler warning: Significant plot details follow.

Geralt being knighted by the Lady of the Lake

Lady of the Lake knights Geralt after he fulfils her wishes, and gives him this blade along with the words: "Take this sword as a sign of my favor. Once the blade of a great warrior, it lay in the depths for ages, awaiting your arrival."
