  • Where: Thomas Blackthorne

The sword known as The Sword of Swords has been swallowed by 40 of the world's known sword-swallowers. The sword was made by Thomas Blackthorne (UK) in 1994 as a symbolic icon to link the otherwise solitary and disparate sword-swallower community. The Sword of Swords was also swallowed by famous Guinness World Record holders such as the most tattooed man, Lucky Diamond Rich (Australia, born New Zealand) and Natasha Veruschka (USA) who holds the record for having swallowed most swords simultaneously (13 swords).
