Nightblood is so heavily Invested that it would be like trying to freeze the ocean with an ice cube. *crowd wows* Maybe not that scale, that's your metaphor.

Brandon Sanderson

Brandon Sanderson

Um, right. The thing about it is you're trying to Invest something that is already very Invested, which always has weird effects. So while you could do it, it would be a gross waste of the potential. It's like using a nuclear bomb as a paperweight. It is functional but--

Yes it would be very hard to make Nightblood stick to something. The amount of Investiture in Nightblood is--

Yes. Larger than most things you've seen. So Pushing on Nightblood, really hard.
