A Comparison Of Different Sword Weights To Common Household Objects

This is a graphic created by Carrie Patrick comparing the weights of various swords to common household objects like cans of chili, loaves of bread, boots, and children. Children thankfully not being that common a household object in my home aside, I learned a lot by looking at the chart. Mostly, that I’m packing a Tide detergent bottle worth of steel on my back right now. Will I accidentally cut my own ear off trying to unsheathe it with a flourish pretending I’m a Witcher? *shakes Magic 8-Ball, loses grip, throws over shoulder and breaks* It is decidedly so.

Keep going for the sword vs gun weight chart created by Nick Thomas that served as inspiration for Carrie’s chart.
