According to Klingon lore, the first Bat'leth was forged around 625 AD by Kahless, who "dropped a lock of his hair into the lava from the Kri'stak Volcano, then plunged the fiery lock into the lake of Lursor and twisted it to form a blade. After forging the weapon, he used it to defeat the tyrant Molor, and in doing so united the Klingon Homeworld. This first bat'leth was known as 'The Sword of Kahless'" (Source)
