Abstract: A peculiar failure made named ''sword in sheath'' was reported in previous studies on Vapour Grown Carbon Fibers (VGCFs). It consists in a gliding between the VGCFs catalytic hard core and pyrolitic soft coating. This is a very interesting failure mode, looking to the additional work of fracture that it supposes.
