The Picori Blade is a sword from The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. It was once wielded by the Hero of Men to fight the army of evil and seal them inside the Bound Chest. The sword was created by the Minish (called the Picori by Hylians), and given to the Hero of Men for this exact purpose. After the hero defeated the evils of the world, the sword became a fabled relic of sorts, and was kept by the Royal Family of Hyrule. Although it is called the Picori Blade, it is as big as a regular sword.
As the years progressed, Hyrule started celebrating this victory in a holiday known as the Picori Festival. During this annual festival, there is a sword-fighting tournament. The winner of this competition receives a brand new sword, as well as the honor of being able to touch the fabled Picori Blade, still jammed into the Bound Chest. During The Minish Cap, Vaati wins the tournament and gets the opportunity to touch the blade. Instead of merely touching it, he breaks the blade into pieces, hoping to open the Bound Chest and find the Light Force. To his dismay, however, the Light Force is nowhere to be found; instead, he unleashed all the evil monsters that the hero sealed away.
Interestingly, the Picori Blade bears a strong resemblance to the Master Sword, and shares its ability to seal away evil though is apparently a different sword as it was created by the Minish while the Master Sword was forged from the Goddess Sword created by Hylia and blessed with the power to repel evil by her reincarnation. However it shares these similarities with other blades designed to combat evil and wielded by an incarnation of the hero such as the Phantom Sword and Lokomo Sword.
