I’m currently reading (well, listening to) T. Kingfisher’s Swordheart, in which one of the main characters IS a magic sword.  Well, a warrior who has been put into a magic sword, from which he emerges when it’s drawn — quite like a genie.  Except that now the widow who wields him and the lawyer-priest of the Rat God who is traveling with them are enthusiastically trying to figure out exactly how the magic works, and making him experiment with things like, if he goes into the sword needing to piss, does he still need to piss when he comes out again.  

Highly recommend.
