Long term commands are ineffective when using command mantra... so, you will still die of Kansho to the head...

Excalibur is the "sword of promised victory", Caliburn is the "sword that chooses kings", that is why Shirou was fumbling around with it, he can't wield it, because he is not the king of England.
no one mentioned it's only usable by a king. just because it selects the king doesn't mean only the king can use it. I don't know why people scream about shirou not being able to wield it, while the description in the game says the biggest difference between caliburn and excalibur is about being fancy on design, not "usable-king only".fuyuki wiki wrote:Caliburn - The Golden Sword of Destined Victory
The holy sword that is the symbol of England's king of knights, King Arthur. The symbol of the king, pulled from the stone of appointment by the guidance of Merlin.
Different from the holy sword of the Lady of the Lake and so, has somewhat different qualities as a Noble Phantasm. But to Saber, Caliburn is the one that she has a stronger attachment to.
Because swords are symbols of authority, the swords of kings are often lowered to the role of being fancy decorations. The biggest difference between Excalibur and Caliburn is that particular point. The cost of being a dazzling sword is that weapon's grade is inferior to Excalibur. By the legends, it was broken in a battle in which the rules of chivalry had been broken by Arthur.
it doesn't matter. the noble phantasm is activated. no other explanations. normal stabs won't even hurt berserker, unless it's activated as a noble phantasm.Berserker got demolished because of the raw damage of Caliburn. I have a question too, did Sabre invoked the true name of Caliburn? If she did not, and that one stab killed Berserker, that will mean Caliburn is superior to Excalibur, as she was bashing at Berserker with Excalibur with no avail.
