-happens when that same characteristic is applied to a non-weapon?

Pardon me if I'm wrong, but a Great Weapon is exclusively the creation of
the serioli (sp), is it not?  Kieron's greatsword, in as much as we know
anything of it, functions as a large piece of stabbity-hack metal, a potent
symbol of conquest, and potentially a talisman to draw the soul of Kieron
from the paths....which, by vote of irony, I hope goes into an easterner who
recovers it from StY's smoking corpse.

So, aside from all else, was Allam made by our serioli friends?
