Starting from the Far East, we can discover mythical swords like Ama-no-Habakiri (天羽々斬) used by Shinto god Susanoo to slay the Orochi Dragon; the Cheng Ying (程影), an elegant sword of China’s Zhou Dynasty era, and considered one of the ten legendary swords of the Middle Kingdom; or the Usumidori (薄緑) the katana of Minamoto no Yoshitsune, used during the Genpei War, and many other ones. But obviously, these kinds of legendary weapons can be found also in Western Countries. And without any doubt the most famous one is Excalibur. Appeared for the very first time in the 13th Century poem Merlin wrote by the French knight-poem Robert de Boron this is the King Arthur’s magical sword thanks to which he could rule over the whole Britain.
