"A single-edged sword seldom seen in Hyrule. This weapon is passed down through the Sheikah tribe and has an astonishingly sharp edge ideal for slicing."
Hyrule Compendium

Eightfold Longblades are items from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. They are Sheikah longswords with a base attack power of 32, though this may increase if they have certain weapon bonuses. One can be obtained in a Treasure Chest found in the Shee Vaneer Shrine. They are also occasionally wielded by enemies, such as a Lizalfos on Samasa Plain near the Rucco Maag Shrine. The swords are rarely seen in Hyrule, and were forged using Ancient Sheikah technology. When charged, instead of doing a heavy spin-attack, Link will hold it like he's about to draw it from a side sheath and do a quick slash when the button is released.

In Recovered Memory #17: "Zelda's Awakening", one of the unnamed Sheikah warriors that find Link and Princess Zelda carries one sheathed on his back like Link does.

Etymology

The longsword's name may be a reference to the Eightfold Path from Buddhism.
