Mamluk Turks (14th c) 

Mamluks of Qipchaq (Kipchak / Kıpçak), also spelled Mameluke, slave soldier, a member of one of the armies of slaves that won political control of several Muslim states during the Middle Ages.

Mamluk Turks used oath cup as a "State Coat of Arms".
The other name "State of Turks" (al-Dawla al-Turkiyya) in Egypt, but they do not use especially, deliberately that Turk! Because, the world is going to be aware of the great Turkish history then...

In Turkısh iconography "Oath Cup" was used on Statues of Gokturks/Kokturk 6th AD.

This tradition has continued from the Sumerian, Cimmerian and Scythian Turks period (BC time) to Göktürks on Tashbaba (Taşbaba / stone statues), as "Life Potion" "Life Water" in Mesopotamia, "Oath Cup" in later times. Turks swore; just like the Scythian warriors swore an oath of blood for peace and brotherhood; with a few drops of blood in their cup and drank it, that cup is called "Oath Cup", and "HOLLY GRAIL" story comes from that tradition into Europeans culture 
only after 12th c AD with Chrétien de Troyes, and not before....
if it was an indo-european tradition, where was it for centuries then?...

As the STORY OF ARTHUR and EXCALIBUR from the 6th c AD.

Which was the Story of The SCYTHIANS , ALANS (As Turks) and 
SARMATIANS (Scythians and Amazons sons/daughters - Turks) 
and EXCALIBUR name comes from XALUB which a Scythian Tribe was in North Black Sea region.

On the other hand:

"The Hittite version of the Sword in the Stone story has several elements in common with the Arthurian variant. Both feature a sword in a graveyard. Both swords are associated with a king. The twelve runners in the Hittite variant parallel the Twelve Knights of the Round Table in Arthurian tradition. Also, the anvil of the Arthurian variant preserves the connection between the forging of iron and the story of the god who planted a sword in a stone at Yazilikaya....."

This is been told in history but this tradition belongs to Hattians and not to the Hittites....Because...

Hattusa was a Hattian capital city before conquest by the Hittites (1600 BC). The oldest name for Anatolia (Asia Minor) was "Land of the Hatti" like the capital city "Hattusa" and was used until the end of the 2nd millennium BC. Hittite used Hattian language, also called Hattic, Khattic or Khattish, non-Indo-European-non Semitic, an agglutinative language, like the Scythians, Cimmerians, Partians, of ancient Anatolia in 3rd and 2nd millennia BCE (accepted by scientists). 

An inscripiton from the 14th-13th c: "The priest is now talking in Hattic". Hittites took also their culture and religion over.

"Hittites didn't came with culture! Was not important in culture" C.W.Ceram

They actually called themselves as "Nesili" (Nesi / Nesa), by misreading from Aramic Torah "hittim" or "khetim" was is called Hittite. While in Assyrian and Boğazköy inscriptions (even in Arabic and Egypt) is written as "Hatti". In the 19th century people didn't know much about these people. When Torah was translated into western languages, the German translation was made by Martin Luther; "Ht" as "Hethit"; then English and French translaters read that as "Hitite" and wrote as "Hitite". Turkish scholars took that translate to from French/English translating.

So, the "land of Hatti" became "Hittite", like the capital city....

Turkish History.....a rich History
