    When he got twinkle, it was because he was missing a scimitar at the time, though I presently forget what happened to it. C'mon though, you can't tell me that you'd hang on to some cheap old regular sword if you found a demon-slaying fire-proofing magical one.

    Hahaha, yes, demon slaying, fire warding swords do take prececence. :) Yeah, I am pretty sure the others were just forgotten about. They became totally unnecessary so Drizzt didn't care and Salvatore didn't lament them in his writing.

    Exactly, just like Aragorn gets rid of his faithful ranger sword when he gets Anduril. Those unenchanted blades don't get much respect. In Prince of Persia 2: Warrior Within, the prince acually chucks his old blade when he gets a new one. This amuses me.

    yeah, i get where your comin from, but i sort of thought the blades had some sort of sentimental value. i mean, they got drizzzt out of many a predicament when he was in the underdark.

    They also have a lot of bad memories along with them. They represented what he despised most about the Drow culture.

    His original ones melted and broke when he spent too long in the sunshine.

    He dumped one of his replacements in Icingdeath's lair to make space for Icingdeath the scimitar.

    He lost the other one chasing Entreri in 'Streams of Silver' and was given Twinkle by one of the Harpells.

    I think Montolio gave them to him, it's been about 15 years since I read those books though.
