Sword & Giant Sword
The sword is a basic fighting item found in Minecraft with Hexxit adding more types and variations.
Swords deal more damage than tools. Swords can also gather string from Cobwebs faster than any tool (except shear) however taking double durability loss than normally using the sword.
The sword can destroy all other blocks 1.5x faster than using hands/tool not intended for the block.
Holding right click will result in most swords blocking, taking half damage. Some swords have special abilities with their right click and may not reduce damage as expected. If a shield is in the hotbar, you will switch to the shield while attempting to block with the sword and once released you will return to the sword after a few moments.
