    • Will be lost in the comments, but meteoric iron has high carbon content and is exposed to high temperature upon entry, creating a decent steel, completely unfeasible by the Egyptians at that time, as well as a exceptionally sturdy blade (for the time).

    • Yeah first rare and strong materials and elements can be found in meteors normally , second if your a blacksmith and either find/ come across legitimate ore from the sky you’d see it as your crowning achievement to craft your best work out of a material seemingly so rare no one knew it existed

    • But also, meteorites were often some of the only mostly pure forms of steel and iron that ancient civilizations had access to, and they are way stronger than bronze and other metals, so if they used meteorite, not only was it basically metal from God, but it acted like it since it was super strong.

    • Because at the time iron was rare and hadn't been fully researched and utilized. The meteorite was mostly iron, not only giving them a precious metal but it also seemed as a gift from the gods to them.

    • When the metal in the meteors was forged into a sword or other similar weapon it resulted in a stronger blade since the metal was outright higher quality than what was usually available. This led people to believe the swords were magical since they could sometimes break other blades with good strike

But in the old days they didn’t know how to make steel so it was easier to collect chunks of meteor and forge them into swords!
