The Sawed-off sword is a weapon.
The Sawed-off sword started as a joke. Three heroes were out hunting. Two of them had shotguns, which were appropriately sawed off. The third, however had a sword. One of the heroes filed a complaint to the admins, claiming that all hunting weapons must be sawed off. After a long debate, the admins decided that they had a point. Disregarding the fact that no one had sawed-off rifles, the heroes sword became a sawed off sword. Due to RPG logic, the sword losing half its blade increased it's durability and changed its item name. He quickly alerted his guild leader, who began mass producing these Sawed- off swords and selling them to newbies.
