Nothing worse than a soiled sword.

I was at Wilkinson’s factory.  They had agreed to lend a sword to some charity thing that involved an assault on the Guinness World Record Apple Pie.  In went the sword, challenging some pie that was twenty feet across.  Out came a ruined blade.  Apple acids do not improve a steel balde.

No doubt that’s what you had in mind.
