    Default Why can't the Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre be reforged again?

    These weapons had already been reforged once - the Heaven Sword was reforged from Yang Guo's Gentleman Sword and Xiaolongnu's Lady Sword, while the Dragon Sabre was reforged from Dugu Quibai's Heavy Iron Sword.

    Why couldn't they be reforged again after breaking them to extract the secret hidden inside them?

    In fact, the Dragon Sabre was repaired by the Ming Cult after it came into their possession. The Heaven Sword, however, the Ming Cult blacksmiths wouldn't touch because Mit Jeut See Tai had used it to kill so many of their comrades-at-arms.

    Oh okay. Thank you for clarifying that. I haven't read the book but have seen countless TV adaptations of HSDS and none of them really addressed this.

    Interestingly, in the latest 2019 adaptation, both are reforged by Ming Cult. The Heaven Sword was returned to Emei.
