Gram is a one-handed sword that appears in Symphony of the Night, Aria of Sorrow and Harmony of Despair.
Gram in Castlevania
Gram is typically a fairly powerful but otherwise unremarkable late-game sword, having no special abilities or elemental powers.
Appearance in Symphony of the Night
Gram is the second-strongest of the basic short swords, having an ATK bonus of 30, and is only exceeded in the family of no-ability swords by Dark Blade which has +35 ATK and +2 DEF. It is slightly stronger than Harper and has no special abilities. It can be found in a room on the highest floor of the Reverse Colosseum in between the two save points (somewhat closer to the left save point).
Like all such swords, it is a completely unremarkable weapon, and is exceeded in every way by the high-level swords like Mourneblade, Crissaegrim, Terminus Est, Mablung Sword and the Alucard Sword which can be acquired with relative ease at that point in the game.
Appearance in Aria of Sorrow
This is a standard horizontal slashing sword. It is the strongest and most expensive sword that can be purchased at Hammer's Shop with the exception of Ascalon, which costs three times as much. It takes Hammer a while to find this sword and is only available after defeating the Headhunter. It is only available at Hammer's shop.
It is slightly stronger and otherwise identical to the Mystletain. As in Symphony of the Night, it is the most powerful horizontal slashing sword that only has ATK bonuses. It is exceeded by the Burtgang, which is a little bit smaller but a good degree stronger and also gives a small defense and constitution boost.

- In Norse lore, Gram was the name of the sword that Sigurd (Siegfried) used to kill the dragon Fafnir. It was forged by Weyland The Smith and originally belonged to his father, Sigmund, who received it in the hall of the Volsung after pulling it out of a log into which Odin had stuck it—nobody else could pull it out. The sword was destroyed and reforged at least once. After it was reforged, it clove an anvil in half. See Sigurd for more details on the story of Siegfried and Fafnir.
