Words used as weapon (5)


I believe the answer is:


'weapon' is the definition.
(I know that sword is a type of weapon)

'words used' is the wordplay.
'used' indicates an anagram.
'words' with letters rearranged gives 'SWORD'.

'as' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for sword that I've seen before include "Two-edged weapon" , "Cutting weapon" , "Normandy beach" , "Bladed weapon" , "Sharp-edged weapon" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
