LOTR The Hobbit Sword of Thorin OakenShield Orkcrist United Cutlery


In Third Age of Middle-earth, Thorin Oakenshield and his Company
of Dwarves came upon a troll lair in Rhûdaur. There Thorin found
an ancient Elven sword named Orcrist, forged by the high Elves of
the West, in Gondolin. Thorin claimed Orcrist for his own and vowed
to cleave Goblins with it once again. He wielded the sword through
most of the Quest for Erebor, using it against the Goblins of the
Misty Mountains. The Goblins called it “Biter” and hated and feared it.
The blade of Orcrist features a curved leaf shape on one side, and a
straight edge on the other, a fitting design for a blade meant to cleave
Orcs and Goblins. Adorning the pommel is an emblem of the heraldry of
Ecthelion of the Fountain. The hilt is shaped from the tooth of a dragon.
It is unknown if the tooth was acquired prior to the fifth battle of
the First Age, or added to the sword with the inscription in the millennia
after the Fall of Gondolin, most likely by the Dwarves of the North.
Inscriptions on the sword in Elven runes:
On the guard is the name Orcrist “Goblin-cleaver”.
Blade Inscription (both sides): “The serpent’s tooth”.
