First of all, I have searched for a similar question but couldn't find anything. Sorry if it's a duplicate.
The idea is this: my fantasy world has, beside regular ones, a set of Amazing Swords™. As the name suggests, Amazing Swords are superior in any aspect, from weight to cutting capabilities, and they look pretty neat, too. They are made from That Particular Metal™ and are forged through that Obscure Ritual™, so let's not dwell on how and why they are so good. Think of them like Damascus steel, but better. It's probably due to magic.
Since I'm not content with them being already overpowered, I'm trying to figure out what happens when an Amazing Sword clashes with a regular one (we're talking about the average eleventh century European sword here).
I imagine that the weaker sword will probably dent with ease, but could it shatter? Could it be that the Amazing Sword is so good at applying force that it messes up the very structure of an inferior sword?
According to a preliminary search, the answer should be no (e.g., here) and the whole sword-breaking could be just a trope. Still, I'd like to hear some opinions.
On a side note, I don't need shattering per se, I'd just like to know if I can make regular sword break or become unusable easily.
