Are you of the misconception that Merlin forged the blade Excalibur? It is obvious that the blade was a flawed attempt at copying the manner that we Dwarves forge a blade. It could only cut partially through stone, whereas our blades could cleave completely through much denser stone. Others of our blades could cut through steel as if it was butter.
Dwarves are the masters of the forge, displaying skill with the axe and the hammer. We long for glorious battles where we may test our mettle. The mysteries of the dwarves are more substantial than that of the elves and their glitter of fairy dust.
