A Storm of Swords
Lord Tywin Lannister has Tobho Mott make the sword as a gift for his elder son, Ser Jaime Lannister. Ser Kevan Lannister tells Jaime that the gift is heartfelt, but Jaime thinks his father and uncle are mocking his missing hand. 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. Jaime notes the appropriateness of protecting Eddard Stark's daughter with his own steel.
A Feast for Crows
Brienne of Tarth uses Oathkeeper to slay Pyg and Timeon at the Whispers and Rorge at the inn at the crossroads. The brotherhood without banners use the sword as evidence that Brienne serves House Lannister.
