I don’t know too much about that particular tradition … I do know that at Scottish weddings the couple often uses a sword to cut the first slice of wedding cake, rather than a cake cutter – and I think that (at least if the bride’s family is Scottish) the bride & her family are supposed to give the sword to the groom as a way of welcoming him to the family …?

Sorry, maybe other Bees can confirm/correct/elaborate. I have a little bit of Scottish heritage, but it’s one of the lesser branches of a very Heinz 57 family, so the traditions have become pretty diluted.
