Cooking pans are all the same, right? That’s obviously incorrect; different pans use different materials, handles are of different strengths, metals can go to different temperatures, and the experience points required to wield them all differ.

Combat Kitchenware, a new project running on Kickstarter, looks to meet the needs of the Dungeons and Dragons diners. Morlock Enterprises has crafted the Fighting Man’s Frying Pan, a standard variety of pans with an aluminum/silicon handle designed like a broadsword. For various Kickstarter reward levels, you can acquire a different size of cook pan, Epic Quest Cards (recipes), handle kits, and trivets.
What could be down the road for this company? “Meat-tenderizing maces” are teased in the video, but a wide adoption of these pans is the goal.
Obviously, Martha Stewart won’t be using the dishes pans for anything in her kitchen, but those who enjoy a little bit of swords and sorcery with their steak and eggs might find newfound interest in their cookware.
