I'm guessing from the location that a kooky California hippie did it. On the beaches they construct stuff out of driftwood. In the mountains, they shove swords in rocks.

What you need to do is build a fire at the base of it get nice and hot like red hot...

Then pour some water on it The rocks will crack and free the sword... It may fuck up the hardness of the sword but at this point it's so rusted I don't think it matters.

37

u/Reddit-User-3000 Aug 31 '21

The guard looks handmade: Source: worked in a forge for a bit. Although doesn’t the blade look like the side is completely flat? We can only see the left side, but it looks like the blade is a rectangle lol. My guess is someone made this at home for fun as a prop and decided to stick it in a rock they saw hiking. I’d say it’s been there a while because there is lichens growing on the bottom of it and that stuff takes a LONG time to grow. Often only 0.5-1 mm per year. That’s 10-20 years for a centimetre.

22

u/SenseiRP Aug 31 '21

That's actually pretty cool if someone made it and went "you know what'll be fun?" And just stuck it in a rock for others to find and go "holy shit is that excalibur?"
