Wikipedia: Excalibur
Excalibur is the mythical sword of King Arthur that may be attributed with magical powers or associated with the rightful sovereignty of Britain. Traditionally, the sword in the stone that is the proof of Arthur’s lineage and the sword given him by a Lady of the Lake are not the same weapon, even as in some versions of the legend both of them share the name of Excalibur. Several similar swords and other weapons also appear within Arthurian texts, as well as in other legends.

I’ve been to a talk on King Arthur today. The sound wasn’t very good but I think they said he used to measure the size of his omelettes by using his eggs caliper.
