Ok, so I'm looking for some facts on an interesting topic...


Could a diamond sword be realisticaly created?

How heavy would it be?

How much damage would it do to the average zombie?

Does it have the enchantment potential to become a Flaming sword of slaying?

Depends on the tensile strength of the particular diamonds.

How heavy would it be?

Pretty heavy, and not balanced well I'd assume.

How much damage would it do to the average zombie?

OVER NINE THOUSADDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Does it have the enchantment potential to become a Flaming sword of slaying?

Of course silly.

someone's been playing too much FFXII.....

although diamond may be an extremely hard material, if enough force is applied onto a hard surface (for example, the water dungeon boss' Tempered Chainmail of Thunder protection), it'll shatter, and thereby destroying any chance of saving the princess from the evil undead dragon who has three final forms with no save points inbetween.

Daimond is not an ideal material for a sword, it may be very hard, but it can also be very brittle.
Is it a bad thing if one of your testicles is larger then the other two?

Good idea, but there aren't any diamonds big enough to make the blade of the sword.

you can grow CRYSTALS not DIAMOND.... Diamonds are, by nature, highly compressed carbon chains into a crystalline structure. Crystals are just giant lumps of salt, essentially. You can grow crystals by use of a salt in a solution that will react/evaporate (depending on chemicals etc) to form/leave a solid structure.

You can't do that with diamond. I think.
#16
non-malleable materials such as diamond are far from ideal for sword making, it would probably shatter quite easily. You could coat the blade with powdered diamond to make it eaiser to cut through bone however.

not can, is very brittle

diamond sword vs steel sword = shattered diamond sword

That could, however, be the precursor to the epic quest he would have to go on to recover all of the missing shards, which were scattered throughout the world. The last piece of course, will be held by his nemesis.

That wouldn't be that good because after you beat his nemesis and form the sword, the quest would be over. What would you do with the sword? Cut wood? I think the last shard should be held in an ancient temple, guarded by the warriors who's devotion is so strong that their will to protect the shard is carried on even after death.

It's possible to make gems by machine but it costs a lot of money. Technically you can have a sword made out of sapphire or ruby or whatever and still be potntially powerful but I don't think many people think it's a good enough idea to even bother with.

Not unless you craft it with a Morbian Power Crystal, duh.

Yup, isn't diamond like a 10 out of 10 on the mohs scale? If so than that shit is no joke to play around with.

I feel like a nerd for knowing this but diamond is also one of the few and maybe only type of jewelery that can be dangeous to keep around a high end watch as high end watches use sapphire face plates since sapphire is nearly unscratchable but not to diamonds.

#31
Another interesting property of diamonds, they will feel cold when you pick them up while they are at room temperature, because they have a very high thermal conductivity. That's one way to tell real from fakes - however, you have to make sure it is actually at room temperature before testing, if someone was wearing or holding the ring it will be warmer.

Duh, of course it does. But you have to be a level 50 Arcane Fire mage to wield it though.

it would be dangerous to have around any type of watch, glass and plastic and all the other shit they make watch faces out of is going to be a lot softer then diamond as well
