This ancient sword is made out of steel which is full of a “miracle material”, “discovered” only in 1991. The presence of this material made this sword extremely hard and flexible. This sword is claimed to be the first place where this “miracle material” was used (much before it was “discovered”).

Identify the sword and the “miracle material”

Answer:

This sword is made of wootz steel, which was full of carbon nanotubes. This belonged to Tipu Sultan.

Many of you did not mention Tipu Sultan, but points have been given for wootz steel, Damascus Swords et al.
