Chapter 21: New Weapon
The next day.
As soon as Yuto woke up, he immediately got ready even before the sun was fully up and headed to Plutos.
Mari: “...Yuto, you’re here way too early.”
Yuto: “Sorry… I just couldn’t stay still knowing that my sword would be ready today."
Mari just arrived at the storefront from her dormitory, and gave a strained smile at her longtime friend.
Today, Yuto will obtain a Mithril sword.
And not only that, this sword was made by Kronos’ most famous smith, Duglar.
Every adventurer dreams of having a Mithril-made weapon and works hard to one day have one in their hands.
That weapon will finally be available to Yuto.
Under the circumstances, no adventurer would be able to restrain the excitement they would feel.
Mari: “I guess it can’t be helped.”
Mari chuckles as she unlocks and opens the door to the store.
Yuto walks in and immediately notices the white package on the counter.
It was a weapon wrapped in white cloth.
Yuto slowly approaches the counter, never taking his eyes off the package.
“So you came.”
A sudden, deep voice breaks the silence and makes Yuto jump into the air.
The voice came from Duglar.
Duglar peeks in through the back of the store with his workshop outfit and gear on.
Yuto: “Good morning, sir.”
Duglar: “I thought you’d be popping in first thing this morning. I got it ready for you.”
Yuto: “Then… is this…?”
Duglar: “It’s your new weapon. Try it out.”
Yuto audibly swallowed, and took hold of the sword with the cloth.
The sword was extremely light.
But not only that, Yuto could sense that it’s lack of weight did not detract from its durability.
The weight distributed across the sword was perfect.
Yes, the sword itself was light, but it was the appropriate weight when he swung the sword by its handle,
Yuto finally unravels the cloth and looks within.
Taking off the cloth revealed a breathtaking white and silver blade.
The size of the blade and handle was exactly the same as his previous sword.
But the blade was made differently.
Yuto: “The blade curved slightly, and it’s a single-edged sword.”
Duglar: “I took the habits I saw from your previous sword and forged it accordingly.”
The sword Yuto has been using for 9 years had one particular edge that was much more worn out than the other. Because of that, you could not see it with the naked eye, but the sword itself began to curve naturally.
The standard sword in Kronos is a double-edged sword.
Even if one side of the sword got damaged, you can flip the sword and use the other side.
But Yuto never once crushed any side of his blades.
Then for him, a single-edged sword is enough.
By making it a single edge, you can add curvature to the sword.
By adding curvature, you are increasing its ability to cut through objects.
And by only making the blade only on one side, you can essentially make the sword lighter.
The weight you conserve can be applied to make the sword sturdier, and it still will be lighter than a double-edged sword.
This Mithril Sword was the most efficient use of Yuto’s sword style.
Duglar: “Well, more of a katana than a sword now.”
Yuto: “A katana?”
Yuto hasn’t heard of a sword like that and tilts his head to the side.
Duglar: “There’s a lot of different shapes for swords in the world. One shape is the katana.”
The new sword was called a katana.
Yuto engraves this name into his heart.
Yuto: “THANK YOU SO MUCH, SIR!!!!”
Duglar: “You better pay up what you owe.”
Yuto: “Yes sir!!”
Yuto bowed his head deeply in gratitude to Duglar for the katana.
Saying everything he came to say, Duglar headed back into his workshop.
Yuto immediately paid the 50,000 gards he owed, and gazed at his katana, but then realized something.
Yuto: “.....oh, wait. Does this not have a sheath?”
Mari: “Of course not. This isn’t a standard equipment we sell, but a custom order. If you custom order a sword, you typically have to custom order the sheath too.”
Yuto: “.....oh no…”
Yuto’s face becomes ghostly pale.
Without a sheath, he will not be able to carry around his katana.
He could stick it in his inventory, but it will be a lot of trouble taking it in and out inside a dungeon.
There are places that sell sheaths, but his katana has a unique shape.
Yuto couldn’t imagine that they would sell sheaths that would fit his katana anywhere.
Yuto: “What should I do……”
Mari: “Why not just ask us to make one. I’ll give you a discount.”
Even with a discount, this is Duglar-made product.
To Yuto, the price would be nothing less than eye-popping.
No matter how much Yuto thought, he couldn’t figure out a way to come up with the money.
If he doesn’t have the money, then he just has to be creative and work around it.
Yuto: “I’ll leave the sheath for now. I just became a D-Rank adventurer, so once I make more money, I’ll come by again.”
Mari: “Are you sure? I can help you through the Mari's Private Loan service?”
Yuto: “Yeah, I can’t imagine what interest rates you’ll charge….”
Mari’s smile seems weirdly suspicious and conniving.
Yuto knew for sure.
If he got on this train, it’ll head straight to endlessly ballooning, and life-crushing debts.
Escaping from the clutches of Mari’s Private Loan offers, Yuto headed to the Temple.
Yuto: “Oh! Didn’t I complete the ‘Obtain a new weapon’ Quest?”
Remembering the Chain Quest, Yuto looked at his Skill Board.
>>Level 17 → 18
>>Skill Point: 2 → 5
Gaining a Level and some Skill Points, he also found a new item in his inventory.
Yuto: “....wait, is this….a sheath? Judging from the timing, this must be a Quest Clear Bonus.”
Sure enough, touching the sheath icon, the words “New Weapon Quest Clear Bonus” appeared above it.
Yuto withdrew the sheath and his katana.
The sheath was black colored, and had beautiful inscriptions written over it.
But the sheath was large.
And also for straight swords.
Yuto: “There is no way this will fit…”
Just in case, Yuto placed the katana inside the sheath.
The sheath was big enough to hold a broadsword so the entire katana went in.
But of course, it was not a snug fit and moved around a lot.
Yuto: “Hmmmm….yeah, I don’t think I can…..WHAT?!”
Just when Yuto was about to take the katana out, the sheath began to change shape.
Yuto: “......it fits…..”
The sheath that was too large was not snuggly fit in a sheath that was perfect for it.
What was formerly the sheath for straight swords now had a slight curvature that matches the shape of the katana.
Yuto: “Oh, it must have had some sort of shape adjusting spell just like the endurance bracelet…”
And Yuto was really thankful that this was the reward for the “New Weapon” Quest.
He wanted to try taking out his weapon, but this was in the middle of the main street.
Many people are walking by here.
If he were to unsheathe his katana here, the local militia would come right away to arrest him.
Feeling the weight of the katana on his belt, Yuto feels a renewed vigor flow through him.
Yuto: “Alright! I’m going to dungeon hunt to my heart’s content today!”
With his problem being completely resolved, Yuto bounced up and down as he ran excitedly towards the Temple.
