Can someone help me. Is it in one of the Avatar comics? Just curious.

Sokka loses his trust Jian 劍 meteorite iron sword while knocking out two firebenders during "Sozin's Comet : Part 4" as a necessary trade-off to save his and Toph's life.

It falls into the forest and we don't see it again in the episode.

A firebender comes out of the ship and fires at Sokka and Toph. They fall of the side and Sokka uses his sword in an attempt to stop the fall. They fall and land on a platform, breaking Sokka's leg and his sword landing just in front of him. Toph falls off and Sokka holds onto her hand.

Sokka [In pain.] My leg! Hang on Toph!

Toph Aye, aye, Captain. Two firebenders come out on the platforms next to them. One of them is about to shoot them off, but

Sokka throws his boomerang at him. He kicks his sword in to his hand and throws it at the other one's platform.

Sokka [Sadly.] Bye, space sword.

Although there's no canon explanation for its recovery, you can clearly see on this officially licensed poster that Sokka does indeed recover his sword.

    How can you be sure it's the same sword? – svick Jan 7 '14 at 1:48
  • Yeah, it could be a different sword though? – Izumi-reiLuLu Jan 7 '14 at 17:56

    Good question. I'd like to know the answer, but I don't think there is one. That sword in the image above could be a copy modelled on the original space-sword. I think its likely that the first one fell to earth and was never found ... especially if it broke into pieces. – Arachno-Sapien Feb 4 '14 at 6:29

    I think it's very likely to be real. It looks the same and Sokka would likely remember where he'd dropped it. Then it's just a matter of searching. – Valorum Feb 4 '14 at 7:08

    an Earth Bender like Toph could probably "see" the sword given she sees the world in a different way so she and Sokka proably one day went back for it, Toph proably even suggested it to pay back Sokka for saving her life (or when on her own) – Memor-X Jun 17 '14 at 22:09
