A sword was a mêlée weapon, a hand-held blade weapon used by many humanoid races and cultures. Because of the effectiveness compared to other hand-held weapons, sword weapons are usually common in cultures that have developed the ability to work metal, and often remain in use even after projectile weapons are developed.
James T. Kirk was offered a sword to fight gladiators on Bavarya. (TOS novel: Mission to Horatius)
