    "coming out" stories told by comedians and writers. not a comedy show, per se, but is often funny.

    It wasn't a horcrux, it was one of the only things that could destroy a horcrux.

    I kinda answered this in another thread, before you opened the comments here. Clearly Voldemort did not have access to the sword as he did the other relics of school founders, and therefore it did not become a Horocrux. It, along with other powerful poisonious, magical things like the fangs of the Basilisk or the fire set in the Room of Requirement, were the only things that could destroy a horocrux. Voldemort couldn't gain access to the sword as he wasn't a true Gryffindor.


    The sword only became poisonous when Harry used it to slay the basilisk in Chamber of Secrets.


    I think part of the discussion from Half-Blood Prince was probably confusing the issue here.

    When talking to Harry, Dumbledore mentioned that Voldemort would probably have *wanted* to create Horcruxes using relics he snagged from all four houses. They already knew about the locket from Slytherin, and they deduced the Hufflepuff Cup (which he'd stolen) was another. At the time, they weren't sure what he could use from the other houses, but Dumbledore pointed out the only known relic from Gryffindor (the Sword) was in his office ... and it obviously could be summoned up when needed by a true Gryffindor out of the Sorting Hat. So, it didn't really qualify.
