The Vile Sword is a weapon made with 1 stick and 2 Corrupted Ingots.  It functions the same as the Iron Sword with the same durability and damage however it has one advantage - it can obtain the Soul Stealer enchantment.  This enchantment allows for more than one soul to be trapped in a Soul Shard with one extra soul added per level of enchantment.  While only up to Soul Stealer 4 is possible in the Enchanting table, Soul Stealer 5 may be obtained with an anvil.
