Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders showed off a sword that Ross Perot gave him, in a tweet commemorating the businessman’s legacy.

Perot, who died Tuesday at 89, was a billionaire businessman and third-party presidential candidate. He reportedly gifted the Excalibur-like sword to the Vermont senator for his work on a veterans bill.
