Is there any reason this trope is specifically restricted to swords? It could just as easily be applied to other varieties of weapons for the same effect on the plot of a story. While I usually take the splitter side in the classic wiki conflict, this just strikes me as a little too specific.

the name

I note the name didn't get by the Three Rules of Three. It is rather clunky. While the page is still fresh, we could still discuss the name further. Might I suggest Excalibur in the Rust.

I originally wrote the article. Your idea sounds fine to me.

Would this belong?

I was about to add an entry from Power Rangers: SPD where, during one particular episode the Red Ranger practically begs Da Chief Doggie Kruger to let him borrow his Cool Sword to fight a sword-wielding master during the episode, because he believes it will give him the necessary power to do so.

Doggie, who for the whole episode has been attempting to stress that it's not the sword but WIELDER who determines victory, seems to finally give in and allows Jack (Red Ranger) to borrow it.

Jack subsequently beats the villain easily, but when he goes to return the blade to his superior, Kruger informs Jack that he HADN'T given him his personal Shadow Saber after all. The sword in Jack's hand immediately morphs into its true form—a "regular old sword [Kruger] found in the closet".

I wouldn't know if that could be considered an example or not.
