Alright, my question to all you writers out there, is what exactly are the rules behind using sword names in fantasy? What I mean to say is, in my story, I'm having trouble with repetition, especially when referring to my character's armaments as great sword, short sword, great axe etc. The reason why I'm so broad about the names, is because, when I look at actual sword names, such as a Rapier, Claymore or Flamberge, the root of the name comes from known countries from our world...in fantasy, is it okay to list weapons as such? Because I know it would sound weird calling a sword a Katana in an alternate reality where Japanese people or the dialect doesn't exist. Please Help!
