"This is my grandfather's axe. The blade has been replaced two times, and the handle three times."
Dunno where that quote comes from; something I ran across while browsing the internet. :)
Or they literally reforged the blade or something like that.
Ah, a variant of the Ship of Theseus.
(not sure it helps much with this mod implementation, sorry)
That web page made me think of both Argonians and Guns and Roses....

Hi. That variant is from the Discworld novel titled The Fifth Elephant.
“This, milord, is my family's axe. We have owned it for almost nine hundred years, see. Of course, sometimes it needed a new blade. And sometimes it has required a new handle, new designs on the metalwork, a little refreshing of the ornamentation... but is this not the nine hundred-year-old axe of my family? And because it has changed gently over time, it is still a pretty good axe, y'know. Pretty good.”

EDIT: Durr, I figured this post was more recent as there were topics under this with more recent last posts. Bit confusing. Sorry about the necro.
