Great is the weapon that cuts on its own.
I recently came across this quote from a game, and as non-native English speaker I have some trouble fully understanding it.
First I thought that it means that a weapon, which is so well made that you don't have to put any wielding skill into it, is great since it cuts on its own.
After giving some more thought I have had a doubt in my first conclusion, and had thought it might mean that great(ness) is the weapon, that cuts on its own. Meaning that if you are great at something it comes as a second nature.
My question is that which one of these is the correct meaning of the quote. Could the quote be interpreted both ways since their meanings are on the opposite side of the spectrum?
