I mean the man didn't temper the steel! He put a brass handle on a carbon steel blade! BRASS! UNTEMPERED HARDENED STEEL! This is a sword that will get it's owner killed :).
@hypomodern what a monster!
@csalzman right? Brass causes steel to rust and weaken (not what you're looking for in a handle!), and hardening without tempering gives you a super brittle blade that's as like as not to snap into nasty shards on hard contact. UNACCEPTABLE I SAY <smashes viking drinking horn down on table>
