Hyrule Compendium Entry
Ancient Short Swords can be made by supplying the Ancient Oven at the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab with 1,000 Rupees, 15 Ancient Springs, 5 Ancient Shafts, and 2 Ancient Cores. Their blades are made using Ancient Technology, only appearing when the Weapons are drawn. The cutting power of Ancient Short Swords is stronger than any metal swords. Wielding one against Guardian-type enemies will result in higher damage.
The final weapon that Nebb will ask Link to show him during the Side Quest "The Weapon Connoisseur" is an Ancient Short Sword. If Link brings an Ancient Short Sword for Nebb to see, Nebb will become excited and give him a Diamond as a reward.
Ancient Short Swords are made from Ancient Technology, and therefore they will not attract Lightning during storms, will float on water, are unable to burn when exposed to Fire or a Scorching Climate, and cannot be manipulated with the Magnesis Rune.
