Well, it being the summer and me having no job has led to be taking to the internet and i stumbled over this little jem.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sword_of_Gou_Jian

Really, it shouldn't take you more then 5 mins to read but for the lazy, it basicly details a chinnese sword dating back 2,500 years, that espite having spent the past two and a half millenia in thw et ground is untarnished and still sharp.
