    Interview: Dec, 2010

    Dustin

    Can a Herald's blade/equipment be um....adopted? I only ask because Dalinar seems to be lacking one and that Herald at the end did kick the bucket in his capital and he's gonna need more than armor when Szeth shows up.

    Brandon Sanderson (Goodreads)

    Someone who is not himself or herself a Herald can indeed use one of the Honorblades.

    Footnote

    Just because he fell doesn't mean he's dead.

    Interview: Sep, 2012

    Millennium

    Do Honorblades have the same sort of relationship to Honor (possibly to a much greater degree) that Shardblades do?

    Brandon Sanderson

    You're on the right track.

    Interview: Oct 30th, 2012

    Lance Alvein

    Can you confirm if the scene with Taln at the end of Way of Kings is entirely in Hoid's perspective? There was some discussion that it might not be, since Taln's honourblade was called a shardblade.

    BRANDON SANDERSON (paraphrased)

    That entire scene is in Hoid's POV, and the reason for it being called a shardblade is because honourblades are shardblades.

    Interview: Aug 13th, 2014

    Question

    If a non-Windrunner Surgebinder (who had spoken all the Ideals of their Radiant Order) summoned Jezrien's Honorblade, what color eyes would they get? A blend? Different colors for each eye?

    Brandon Sanderson

    :) I'm going to RAFO eye color questions for the moment. We'll actually be dealing with some of these in the books. Maybe not the specific ones you ask, but the concepts in general.

    Interview: Aug 13th, 2014

    Question

    Would a Returned who bonded an Honorblade have their eye color change when they summon it?

    Brandon Sanderson

    That's a RAFO! (More because I don't have my notes handy than anything else, though.)

    Interview: Mar 4th, 2014

    QUESTION

    Can someone bond more than one Honorblade?

    BRANDON SANDERSON

    Honorblade? You can't bond an Honorblade, though it can be given to you. Shardblades, however, come from a spren bond and it is possible to bond more than one.

    Footnote

    Later clarified, Brandon misunderstood the question. One may be bound to multiple Honorblades.

    Macen

    Are Heralds Surgebinders without Honorblades?

    Brandon Sanderson

    That's a RAFO. That's a big fat RAFO!

    Footnote

    [This was answered at another signing.]

    Interview: Mar 29th, 2014

    Question

    Truthless are pretty rare in Shin society?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes.

    Question

    How did they come by the Dawnshard[I think he and Brandon meant honorblade?] that Szeth got?

    Brandon Sanderson

    They historically kept all of them.

    Question

    Does that have anything to do why they think stone is sacred?

    Brandon Sanderson

    You will find out more about that as time progresses

    Interview: Jan 17th, 2015

    Question

    The Shardblade that Dalinar had at the end of Words of Radiance, was that the Honorblade?

    Brandon Sanderson

    The Shardblade that Dalinar had at the end of Words of Radiance that he gave up?

    Question

    Yeah, that he gave up.

    Brandon Sanderson

    No it was not.

    Question

    It was not? So what happened to the Honorblade that the Herald had?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Nobody kno- Well, somebody knows, but it is not known to the main characters.

    Question

    Can I ask if uh, Hoid-

    Brandon Sanderson

    If Hoid knows?

    Question

    Yeah.

    Brandon Sanderson

    Hoid did not take it, but Iím not answering whether he knows.

    Interview: Oct 12th, 2015

    Question

    Would it be safe to assume that Kaladin is also carrying the Honorblade? Because that makes the most sense to me.

    Brandon Sanderson

    Which Honorblade?

    Question

    The one from Szeth.

    Brandon Sanderson

    That is... He's not.

    Question

    That surprises me, because to me that would be the best- That would make the most sense.

    Brandon Sanderson

    That would be sneaky of me. But that's not the case.

    Question

    So he actually has an Honorblade, since you asked which one.

    Brandon Sanderson

    He took Szeth's. So he has that one. Oh! I thought you meant Taln's, I thought. He does not have Taln's. He has Szeth's.. Yes he has Szethís.

    Question

    I'm assuming he found that one, because that made the most sense to keep it safe

    Brandon Sanderson

    Heís got Szethís, that is true. ... Sorry, I assumed you meant Taln's. Taln's is gone.

    Question

    Yeah. Taln's vanished off the face of the planet! I'm assuming Hoid grabbed that one, actually.

    Brandon Sanderson

    That is one of the prevailing theories and not one that is unreasonable.

    Question

    Well, considering. That was the one, because you had mentioned last time you were here that you could have both, and I was like, "okay, so that means heís got Szeth's sword."

    Interview: Oct 12th, 2015

    Question

    If the spren that bond people scream when they touch a Shardblade, but then at the end of Words of Radiance Kaladin holds Szeth's honorblade and they do not have a problem with that, why does the Stormfather force Dalinar to get rid of his Honorblade at the end of Words of Radiance?

    Brandon Sanderson

    So... He does not have an Honorblade at the end of Words of Radiance.

    Question

    He does not. Oh, I thought he got it from... [Taln]

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yes, that's what the assumption is. If you look very closely, the blade that you think he ends up with is described differently from the one that he actually does.

    Interview: Oct 9th, 2015

    Question

    Why does Talnís Honorblade scream for Dalinar?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Check out the descriptions of the swords in book 1 and book 2. The hint is theyíre not the same sword.

    Interview: Nov 29th, 2016

    Question

    Is Nalan using his original Honorblade, or did he bond a spren?

    Brandon Sanderson

    He's using his original Honorblade. But there's an asterisk here that will come up in Oathbringer.
