Human Bones added to Sword Making Process

Does anyone have any documentation on such a thing from history?

I dont have any doncumentation about it, but one thing im wondering is why would only human bones work?
Are they alot different then animal bones or is it just for the "spirit" that some people believe in.

You know, even if it was just a spiritual thing, I think I'd rather have a sword made with the bones of, say, a bear then one made with human bones. Who knows what kind of human spirit you end up binding to your blade? With animals at least you know what you're dealing with.

The sword is an ode to the strife of mankind.
