I take it that you're going to drop it? After all, you wouldn't want to unbalance your game now, would you?

Exactly, and yes, it is most definitely a sword "balanced for" Act 3. It's not the first time someone finds an Act 3 sword during Act 1 - and even before EE, people reported sometimes finding an Act 3 armour in Act 1 - but I have no idea why this is happening. Is this intentional? I can't see how it could be, as you have pointed out yourself that the sword is incredibly powerful, and finding it in the beginning of the game pretty much obliterates the game's difficulty.
I'm attempting to gather data on these new items in this thread in case you stumble over something else.

Found it in a chest on the ground floor of the tower in Flotsam harbour where you have to save elven women (Iorweth's path). Go there before the end of chapter 1, so you don't have to deal with fire. Don't know if it's random, but I wouldn't call it a gamebreaking sword, since you need Draugir's Claws to finish it (yeah, that's an ingredient you get from quite a rare opponent in chapter 2 /> ). So you can't really use it 'till the end of 2nd chapter / chapter 3. And there is no colorful icon for me (seems it was just a bug that's been resolved since then), it's just a normal diagram.

Not quite: it may appear there, but where and whether it appears is random. There is no certainty at all that you will find it there or anywhere else in any particular game.
There are a number of these unbalanced sword and armor diagrams that may appear but are not certain to appear. I think they are only in console editions of the game.
