I haven't been able to find a direct translation for "Hævateinn". A famous sword from nordic myth. Can anyone help?

"That sword is called Hævateinn, ―the sword pointed to thrust, or, according to Bugge’s proposed emendation based on alliteration: Lævateinn, ―the sword made with treacherous skill."
