Swords are basic melee items found in Minecraft, with Hexxit adding more types and variations.  There are swords from Vanilla Minecraft, swords from mods, and swords which require a completely different crafting system added by Tinker's Construct.

Swords deal more damage than all tools. Swords can also gather string from Cobwebs faster than any tool (except shears), but they take double durability damage from breaking blocks.

The sword can destroy all other blocks 1.5x faster than using something 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.

The strongest melee swords without Enchanting or cheating are the Diamond Giant Sword and Ender Giant Sword(Verification Needed).

Diamond Sword

Standard Minecraft recipes all follow this standard set-up replacing the diamond with the appropriate material. The quartz sword can use any type of quartz block in place of the diamond.

Giant Swords

For the full article, see Giant Swords.

Giant Swords are a variation of the regular swords that will increase the amount of damage done by the normal variant. When guarding with a Giant Sword, damage caused directly by mobs will not be taken (i.e. arrows deflected, but fire damage successful).

Tinker's Construct

Note: This section is incomplete.

There are various types of swords that can be created by Tinkers' Construct.  It is a completely different type of crafting system than Minecraft's built-in system with crafting tables.  There are Broadswords, Longswords, Rapiers, Daggers, Cutlasses, and Cleavers.  To read more about Tinker's Construct, click here
