A Storm of Swords

Lord Tywin Lannister has Tobho Mott[1] make the sword as a gift for his elder son, Ser Jaime Lannister.[4] Ser Kevan Lannister tells Jaime that the gift is heartfelt, but Jaime thinks his father and uncle are mocking his missing hand.[5] Jaime instead gives the sword to Brienne of Tarth, asking her to name it Oathkeeper when he charges her with finding the whereabouts of Sansa Stark.[5] Jaime notes the appropriateness of protecting Eddard Stark's daughter with his own steel.[5]

A Feast for Crows

Brienne of Tarth uses Oathkeeper to slay Pyg and Timeon at the Whispers[6] and Rorge at the inn at the crossroads.[7] The brotherhood without banners use the sword as evidence that Brienne serves House Lannister.[3]

Jaime Lannister, to Brienne of Tarth


Even the sound of it is sharper than an ordinary sword.[6]
