Sword Blocking

A player Blocking an Attack

Swords can be used to kill mobs easier than by hand, and are used to block. Blocking is right-clicking, and attacking is left-clicking. If you get killed by a player with a sword, and the player has renamed the sword in an anvil, the swords name will show up in death messages. Swords do not break blocks anymore in Creative as of 1.6, so you can now easily kill mobs without making a mess.
