spoilers for Men at Arms
@starwall Carrot, who's a constable raised in the mountains by dwarves, is the *true* king of Ankh-Morpork. His sword is utterly mundane, unmagical, but very effective at cutting and killing. In short, the sort of sword a king would *truly* need.
He manages to thrust the blade through a person, through a *stone pillar* behind them, then out the other side. Because putting a sword in a stone is harder than pulling it out, after all.
