Sword of Sharpness ( ( )
Item Type Melee weapon
Artifact? No
Weight 35s
Danger Level 9
Material Iron

The iron-made swords of sharpness are one of the most damaging one-handed swords in the game in terms of base stats. They have typical stats of (+0, 4d8+6), though these may be slightly higher or lower for individual swords

DesirabilityEdit

While swords of sharpness are superior to other swords in terms of base damage, two factors work against them: they cannot receive a magical prefix/suffix, and they are made of iron, which makes them vulnerable to item destruction, and rusting by a rust monster or immersion in water. Assuming they can be kept in good working order, swords of sharpness are one of the best weapons you can find, excluding artifacts. Using a blessed potion of oil or oil of rust removal (likewise blessed) on a sword of sharpness will solve rusting-related problems. Blessing the weapon itself will make it less susceptible to item destruction as well as provide a 1.5x damage bonus against undead and demonic opponents.

Guaranteed/Common SourcesEdit

Swords of sharpness can be randomly generated as all other generic loot. They appear as long swords while unidentified thus sharing a name with a far less formidable type of weapon. However, their unusual weight will allow the player to easily identify them.
