Judgement's Sting, Variant (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Weapon (longsword), artifact (requires attunement by a cleric or paladin)
A lone cleric one walked along the river Styx, carrying nothing but his armor and sword, to slay Asmodeus and bring peace to the multiverse. He failed, and was slain, but in his final moments, channeled the true power of his god, power that remained in his silver armor, Everance, and his silver longsword, Judgement’s Sting. Judgement’s Sting appears as a simple silver longsword that glows with pure white energy after being used in battle for several minutes. The blade is seemingly incapable of getting dirty.
