He got it from Ares when he was a child, he was trying to save his brother Deimos from being taken away. He jumped up and tried to grab him, but Ares knocked Kratos back. This was explained in Ghost of Sparta.

Apologies, I haven't played that one yet! I assumed you would find out in an earlier game because he had it all the way back in Chains of Olympus

Flashbacks were a key story telling device in Ghost of Sparta.
The same won't be said for Ascension. We want you guys to understand the story before God of War 1, not the story before Ascension. That said, we will certainly explore the origins of the story in Ascension, which you get a taste of in the first 30-minutes.
You're in for a wild ride.
I would recommend you focus on the story of Rise of the Warrior, there is a very deliberate reason for the plot, themes, locations, tone, you just may not realize it yet =)
If you want hints about where the story for Ascension will go, play Rise of the Warrior.
