    Looks like it could be Longclaw, which was Jon Snow's sword, made out of Valyrian steel!

    J/K, it was a cool read and a really cool find by this lucky 8 YO kid :)

    Excalibur? Did a lady in that lake have the sword?

    Well it was fresh water so that aided the preservation I'm sure as well as mud..maybe?

    Probably an awesome natural patina that saved it. Some pre-viking used his sword to slice onions for a big batch of salsa.

    The kid has a cool name, "Saga". Article should read "Saga's Sword" or something...

    Wow, crazy story! The only knives I find are made of plastic. With it being ancient, do you think she’s allowed to keep it?

    From what I've been reading in the last few minutes that sword is from a pre-viking era known as "Vendel Era". Apparently swords from that time were typically pattern welded. So it is most likely a pattern welded iron/steel sword. Iron swords and tools will resist corrotion much better than steel.

    That's the 1st thing I thought of when I read "sword found in lake".

    I guess age happens, and faster than I'd thought.
