Excalibur (cut steel) was the sword of King Arthur. In some tales, Gawain's sword was also called Excalibur. Wheter this sword is the same one as that wielded by his uncle, is unclear. According to the Geoffrey of Monmouth, the sword was called Caliburn, and it was forged at the Isle of Avalon. However, the later legend say that Excalibur was given to Arthur by the Lady of the Lake. At Arthur's death, the king had the sword thrown into the lake, by either Girflet or Bedivere. Excalibur came with an scabbard that had even more powerful magic; it prevent of blood from wounds. However, the scabbard was lost because Morgan le Fay stole the sheath and threw it into a lake. In the Welsh tradition, the sword was called Caledvwlch.
