Traditionally, a witcher uses two swords, a steel sword for use on monsters not sensitive to silver or shelled so heavily that only the hard steel can harm them.
The steel swords which witchers make for themselves (or contract swordsmiths to make for them, usually Mahakaman) are traditionally made from either meteoric or magnetite iron, and grant the weapon no superior or magical qualities. Geralt, however, does like to encourage the popular misconception that he wields a supernatural weapon, saying that it brings better pay for the work he does.
Geralt also mentions that the steel sword is often mistaken for being primarily intended for fighting hostile people and while it’s true that witchers use their steel swords when fighting against armed opponents, this is only because a silver sword is a relatively delicate instrument. Striking metal armor or parrying an opponent’s weapon will quickly ruin a silver sword, unlike a steel sword which can withstand such use with little to no damage.
