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.[1] The cutting power of Ancient Short Swords is stronger than any metal swords.[1] 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.[2] If Link brings an Ancient Short Sword for Nebb to see, Nebb will become excited and give him a Diamond as a reward.[3][4]

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.
