Forest Dweller's Swords were made by the Koroks for the Hylians to use.[1] It's likely they were intended to clear paths through forests.[1] They're mostly commonly found in and around Hyrule Field and the Great Hyrule Forest.

The Shrine Quest "The Test of Wood" requires Link to use a Forest Dweller's Sword, as well as a Forest Dweller's Shield and Forest Dweller's Bow, to fight his way to the Maag Halan Shrine.[3] The trial is failed and must be restarted if Link switches his weapons or one of the items breaks.[4]

As a wooden weapon, Forest Dweller's Swords are flammable and will burn when exposed to Fire or a Scorching Climate. If dropped in water, they will float. They also can't attract Lightning during thunderstorms, nor can they be picked up with the Magnesis Rune.
