The Name "Excalibur" was first used for King Arthur's sword by the French writers. It was not the famous "Sword in the Stone" (which broke in battle), but a second sword acquired by the King through the intercession of his druidic advisor, Merddyn (Merlin). Worried that Arthur would fall in battle, Merlin took the King to a magical lake where a mysterious hand thrust itself up from the water, holding aloft a magnificent sword. It was the Lady of the Lake offering Arthur a magic unbreakable blade. The legend of King Arthur is celebrated in this nicely detailed version of the classic sword. The pommel is inscribed with "Excalibur King Arthur" as well as being adorned with the symbol of the dragon. The dragon is symbolic of the Celtic Britons as well as paying homage to his father Uther Pendragon. The crossguard also bears the symbols of the great dragon. The stainless steel blade has been printed with decorative scrollwork. Perfect accent piece for any home office even if you don't have a round table to match!
