This ancient blade was created in a time long forgotten. It was made to battle the fiercest of opponents and is even rumored to be able to cut the very gods. An ancient warrior once wielded in the name of his king, but when the battle was lost, the king killed the warriors family. In a rage, the warrior took up his sword in vengeance and killed the king. Since then, everyone who has wielded the blade has met a terrible fate. It is believed that the soul of that ancient warrior is imprisoned in the blade, and trying to escape. As a result, those who hold it are filled with his terrible rage, and will wade into impossible odds in the name of vengeance.
The wielder of this sword is filled with an unsurmountable rage, and is driven into a bloodlust. The effect is as soon as the blade is drawn, and ends when it is sheathed.

Why is it called the blade of redemption? It seems unapplicable given what it does and its history.
Can we have a few more details on this. If this swords is that ancient, there should be more than one or two stories involving the blade. What does the blade look like. It if is a Godly Blade from a long time ago, it should look like nothing in current production, made of materials either no longer used or unknown to the modern age.
The basic bones of this could be quite good... but it needs explanation.
Remember the Gold Standard: If said item (character, setting) is not as well developed and described as an item (character/ setting) in a fantasy novel (excluding the horrid DnD novels), then the item is not yet done.
Trust me, meeting the gold standard is not that hard.
I guess I will hold my vote back to see if vlad does change it.
Cursed weapons are a staple of fantasy, especially berserker swords. It will not be easy to make an exceptional one.
