** [[MusicalAssassin Scaramouch]] [[RedBaron the Merciless]] from Episode XCII has his sinister scimitar sword that slices as cleanly as Jack's and the Scotsman . While his scimitar is the death of him it's not his most lethal weapon, that would be his tuning dagger, which is not just sharp but can obliterate anything by vibrating at a high frequency.

* Related to this trope is the old cartoon gag of a blade being sharp enough to [[SplitHair split a hair]] neatly in two. A notable example is in the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' short "WesternAnimation/AliBabaBunny", where Hassan's scimitar comes short of piercing WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck's skull but it does part a single hair (feather?) on the top of his head.

* A flashback during Zoro's time at his dojo has his sensei explain that inverting this trope is also necessary to playing it straight; Only the very best swordsman can ''chose'' whether or not they want to cut something. He demonstrates this by purposely failing to cut a piece of paper. During Zoro's battle against Mr. 1 in Alabasta, he shows that he's mastered this aspect by running his sword through some palm leaves- and doing no damage.

** WordOfGod says that Dante's blade is capable of slicing absolutely anything in the physical plane. Not very convincing after the series' later graphical pushes (the rust and nicks become more pronounced). GameplayAndStorySegretation is in effect as it still will take several hacks to down any foe.

* Traditionally, the ''[[ButterflyKnife balisong]]'' was tested before it was sold. The vendor would take out a few one-peso coins and stab right through them with the blade. The blade would be completely undamaged, and the coins (and table) would have holes in them.[[DeceptivelySimpleDemonstration This worked only because the coin was nearly pure silver]], as opposed to the 925/1000 silver in jewels. Silver is very soft, Mohs hardness of about 2.5, and can be scratched by a human fingernail. Think modern electronics solder, with lead replaced by silver in the alloy, and even this is harder than pure silver.
