While we've never been told explicitly that Keiron's greatsword is or
isn't a Morganti weapon (prerequisite to being a Great Weapon), I can't
imagine the Gods would let him wander around the waiting room of
unreincarnated with a soul-destroying weapon.  Even less likely they'd
let him carry around a Great Weapon, which, let us recall, were made
for purpose of killing the Gods.
