This is what a busted blade looks like

This blade, lovingly named "Mr. Smashy" by me, was crafted by a swordmaker named Jess Roe. If you were to call Jess a "crazy old man", that would be a compliment. He is older than Methuselah, his teeth have been sharpened down to points, he could kill you with his pinky, and all the ladies love him for his charm. He placed the blade in my hands 2 years ago and said, "This blade wants to go home with you."
