Unhappy Where I can find special text symbols like ☢▲♞ but is a SWORD?

Heya, sorry for the confusing thread title.

Basically, there are a whole lot of special text symbols available, like the ones I put in the title, that are hard (for me) to find.

❖ Σ ⊗ ♒ ♠ Ω ♤ ♣ ♧ ♡ ♦♢♔

Could anyone tell me or link me the direct symbol itself, for ones that look like a SWORD? Not a knife, but I guess if there is no actual sword symbol, then a knife would have to do.

I only found this site for a bunch of symbols :

http://fsymbols.com/

I am asking because Steam allows these to have in names and such, I am looking for one that is a symbol of a sword.

Thnanks!

If you have Windows 7, go to start, All Programs, Accessories, Systems Tools, and Character Map and look for it.

execute charmap.exe (under win7 enter charmap in the field that says search programs and files in the start menu) and look through them.

but I would also like to implore you to reconsider. please just have a normal text-based, legible name like a civilized person.

It doesn't show up here, and I tried it in my steam name, it comes up as an empty box.

I am actually moreso just looking to have it in my Group name, because all similar normal text names have been taken for what I would like, and a symbol of a sword would fit perfectly. :/

? I'm looking to make a group based around Knights, and I don't see any of the special symbols I found so far to be a good match for Knights. \

I think I saw someone on a TF2 server have a sword symbol that was horizontally placed on the text. Kind of like -> but actually looked like a sword.

Oh I have been thinking about that, but I settled on not using that because I don't want an association with Chess in itself, since I don't play chess, and this would be about actual knights, and also don't want to be associated with the Suicide Squad. (I think that is the comic book group that uses this)

Or any other association with other media that uses Chess pieces, really. *shrug*

I might use it if I can't find a sword, but I was thinking that a sword symbol would look pretty excellent as part of the group name.
