A: A sword of Damocles is something that is a constant, unavoidable danger to you. It is often used when talking about powerful people like politicians or celebrities.

In ancient Greece, a man named Damocles asked a king named Dionysus what it was like to be the most powerful person in the country. Dionysus let Damocles sit in his throne and surrounded him with fine food and beautiful women, but he also hung a large sword directly over Damocles' head by a single hair.

Damocles tried to enjoy sitting in the throne, but soon he was too frightened of being killed by the sword and ran away. Damocles realized this is what it was like to be the king: while he was very powerful, he was also in danger of being killed or invaded at all times.

OK, now that I understand the context, I can answer more clearly. Blunt means that it is not sharp like a machete that someone has been using for cutting weeds all day. It has lost its sharp edge. Or like a kitchen knife that needs to be sharpened.
