The Recruit's Sword is Link's first sword in Spirit Tracks. Although it's a very basic sword, it's required to have if Link wishes to traverse to the Tower of Spirits. It can be found in Hyrule Castle inside the training room. Russell is the person who bestows the Recruit's Sword upon Link after he completes a series of sword exercises. He accidentally mistakes him for one of his recruits due to Link wearing their Recruit's Uniform. It is later replaced by the Lokomo Sword, which is given to Link by Anjean after he completes the Sand Temple. This sword bears a similar resemblance to Oshus's Sword from Phantom Hourglass.
