* The sharpness of the Lotus Blade in the ''FanFic/BloodBondBloodOmenSeries'' of ''Kim Possible'' fanfics is more of an InformedAttribute. While it can obviously take any form that Ron likes while he's wielding it, when Kim [[spoiler: AKA the Scarred Warrior]] wields it, it becomes simply a "very hard, very sharp" sword, one "so perfect that  if one of the men of the school had been so blasphemous as to try it could easily be shaved with." And this description comes from Sensei, who has surely seen his share of swords. On the other hand, we never see it cut anything that an ordinary sword couldn't cut, at least not when it's in sword form.

** There is also the Vorpal enchantment which can be added onto any sword. Not only does it require the weapon to be heavily enchanted to even hold the ability, it makes the blade in question so sharp that upon a successful critical strike, it automatically severs the neck of whatever it hit in a single blow.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Zemo's sword, which cuts through people like air and can punch straight through vibranium weave clothing.
** The Swords of the Cross, e.g. ''Amoracchius''.
** [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles The Wardens swords.]]



* The Scythe in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', which is actually more like an axe but regardless it's absurdly sharp. Moments after acquiring it, Buffy effortlessly bisected the super-strong and super-durable [[TheDragon Caleb]]. Earlier, there was also the Blessed Sword used to defeat Acathla, which also cut through vampires' necks like a hot knife through butter.

* In ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', Ruby's SinisterScythe [[NamedWeapons Crescent Rose]] allows her to effortlessly cut through everything she swings it at, from the heavily-armored [[GiantFlyer Nevermore's]] neck, to [[ItMakesSenseInContext a set of]] curtains, which theoretically would have offered no resistance.
** And then we have [[spoiler: Adam's sword Wilt, which would appear to be nothing special, except that it's apparently either sharp enough to ignore a Huntsman's protective aura outright, or else is granted that ability by his Semblance. This is a huge deal, because without their aura to protect them, Huntsmen are only as damage-resistant as any real-life human.]]

* There are referents to this feat in both Norse and Irish mythology, the trick being attributed to both Finn McCool and to King Olaf of Norway, when in a dispute with the King of Sweden over ownership of an island, they diced for it. The Swedish king rolled two sixes, knowing this was unlikely to be beaten. Olaf rolled two dice, one coming down as a six, and the second induced to come down as a winning seven due to the intervention of his sword-blade slicing the dice in half. This was referenced by Terry Pratchett in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' (See ''Literature'', above.)

* The Subtle Knife from ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials'' would definitely qualify, being a blade sharp enough to slice through reality itself.

** Then we have Sasuke's version. While its no more sharp than an ordinary katana, it becomes nearly unblockable when he charges Chidori through it. With hit he can cut through kunai like butter.

** Finally we have Naruto's strongest attack next to the Bijudama, the Futon: Rasenshuriken. It can cut through Pain paths with ease, as well as stone, giant mountain size trees, and even damage Kurama's fur. The only thing it hasn't damaged is the Sandaime Raikage whose MadeOfDiamond.

* In ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'' knife created by Melk II for Komatsu so sharp, that normal human, while wielding it, could accidentally split mountain in half. Knife, made by Melk I is even more ridiculous, so sharp, that it can cut air around it and, if dropped, fall through the ground, like it's water. Brunch once said, that with it he could cut entire continent in half.
