Sir Terry Pratchett Forges Meteorite Sword: I Wonder if My Pen is Still Mightier Than That

Sir Terry Pratchett became a knight last year, so it’s only fitting that he equipped himself with a sword. But the Discworld author didn’t just buy or commission a sword; he made one himself. Pratchett gathered the iron ore and with the help of his friends built a kiln to smelt the iron. To make the sword even more special, his agent Colin Smythe also donated pieces of “thunderbolt iron” – iron from a meteorite.  Pratchett then forged the sword with the help of Jake Keen, “an expert on ancient metal-making techniques”. Behold! The Pratchett Meteorite Sword:

Unfortunately not even official knights are allowed to carry swords, so Pratchett has hidden the sword instead, in case anyone takes an interest in it. I think it’s safe to say that millions of people are indeed interested in it. I wonder how long we have to wait before this gets referenced in a video game.
