    Also, swords are perishable. There cones a time when you just throw it out. If the sword functioned well enough to save your life, then it served its purpose. If it's still in great condition, bonus. If after the fight it's no longer serviceable, that's ok. Go get another. It's better than dying.

    Since you've just defeated another swordsman, you get to pick whether your sword or his is better and in better shape. :)
