Fire Brand and Frost Brand are two very similar artifacts. They are both unaligned long swords that give double damage and +1d5 to-hit against monsters not resistant to fire and cold respectively. Frost Brand is vastly more popular than Fire Brand, because many monsters in Gehennom are fire-resistant. However, note that most of the Astral Plane's monsters are cold-resistant and not fire-resistant.
The following calculates the damage done by the blessed +7 Fire Brand in the best case scenario: being expert in long sword and attacking an undead large monster without fire resistance (same calculation applies for Frost Brand against a monster without cold resistance):
( +d12 base damage +7 enchantment damage ) *2 double damage (against monsters without fire resistance) +d4 blessed damage (against undead or demons) +2 expert skill bonus = 19 to 44 total damage (average 30)
The worst case scenario for a blessed +7 Fire Brand (with expert skill in long sword) is against a non-undead, non-demon, fire resistant small monster is:
( +d8 base damage +7 enchantment damage ) +2 expert skill bonus = 10 to 17 total damage (average 13)
