As one character describes, you then need to remove the tainted layer for it to be effective again, so you eventually end up with daggers instead of swords.
For some reason, I'm reminded of low-background steel, "harvested" from sunken ships that have spent the entirety of the nuclear age under a protective layer of water.
Gondor has no king. Gondor needs no king. Gondor doesn't have to show you any stinking king.
