As you recall, Kurthan used to be a mercenary.  (And his late wife was an assassin.)  While he no longer goes out and actively kills people, he still trains people in the art of swordfighting as, you know, a warrior discipline.  Loretta's opinion of swords as pretty toys has always irked him, so it ought to be particularly galling that she is now asking him to turn a very good, battle-worthy sword into a pure plaything.  Especially since he gave her that sword in the first place!
