Enchanted/ Famous Swords in Fiction

What books do you know that feature a named enchanted blade? Rules of the list:
The blade must be either named, or so singular that it's instantly recognizable as a specific weapon. (Not just generic light sabers or some such).

If you can, name the blade in the comments and any specific traits you can think of, as long as they aren't spoilers.
This list is meant to be fictional swords, but mythological and legendary swords are considered a part of that.

Must be a sword, knife, dagger or similar. We'll save other weaponry for another list.
