    I recently procured an antique splintering war fork as seen in the image. Is there value to such items?

    Splintering weapons lose their durability very fast. Each time it splinters, it loses extra durability, 10 or 15. So it might be worth a few gold, but I don't think it is worth as much as a clean one.

    So the general consensus is brittle splinters are darn near worthless. Antiques can be PoF'd three times but lose durability quicker than brittle, given that I am not sure there would be much difference value wise between brittle and antique.

    ( Antique or Brittle ) + Splinter = NO Value

    Unless you can powder it an unlimited number of times a splintering wep is worthless...
