Product Details: Sword in the Stone Letter Opener
Sword in the Stone Letter Opener. Excalibur (meaning to ‘cut steel’) was the great sword of King Arthur which ‘gave light like 30 torches’. In the Arthurian stories, the name given to two different swords – the one that the young king pulled from the anvil set in the stone before the church, and so proved his right to the kingship; the other which the king took from the arm that rose above the surface of the lake, ‘clothed in white samite, mystic, wonderful’ which eventually received back the sword when Arthur was dying.
