In Norse mythology, Gram was the name of the sword that Sigurd (Siegfried) used to kill the dragon Fafnir. It was forged by Weyland The Smith and originally belonged to his father, Sigmund, who received it in Götaland after pulling it out of a log into which Odin had stuck it—nobody else could pull it out. The sword was destroyed and reforged at least once. After it was reforged, it clove an anvil in half. See Sigurd for more details on the story of Siegfried and Fafnir.
An alternate name for Gram is Balmung.
Gaming References?! Balmung is also used in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, and found in the Battle Arena through taking one of three trials.
