Each blade is hand-crafted by a Master Iron Priest, and many incorporate the diamond-hard fangs of the Fenrisian Ice Kraken. They are highly sought after and in the skilled hands of a Space Marine they can be comparable in effect to most Power Weapons[1a].
In the legends of the chapter, the finest Frost Blades are made of ice harvested from the heart of a glacier, and then tempered inside a Kraken's belly.
A variant is the Frost Axe, which incorporates the same elements. Frost axes are sometimes made from energized diamond, giving them the appearance of blades forged from pure ice.[1a]
