Archimedes' Lever is the sword wielded by the original Storm King. Forged by master-Spark Van Rijn, along with being powerfully electrified in some fashion, it was "bound to its owner's soul", allowing him to sense and activate it from (at least) a fair distance away. According to Violetta, the blade was also sharp enough to "cut the day out of the night", whatever that means.

The Storm King was separated from the weapon before disappearing from the historical scene; when first seen in Agatha's era, it is in the possession of Storm-King descendant Tweedle in Paris.

The Jägermonsters refer to it as Slasher.

Orcrist was the sword known as “Biter” by the Orcs.
