S'harien was a Vulcan blacksmith. His name meant "pierce blood". He was the greatest blacksmith in Vulcan's Forge, creating the best swords on Vulcan. He loved war, hated peace, and therefore despised Surak. At 190 years of age, this unkempt fellow heard that Surak was in the area and pledged to spit on the man. Ten days later, after talking with Surak, he renounced all violence and set about destroying all his swords.
So beautiful were his wares, that Surak begged him to stop his destruction. The final three swords were given to S'task to take with him on Rea's Helm. Spock possessed one of the swords, which he had inherited. (TOS novel: The Romulan Way)
