The Sword of King Elessar (Aragorn to laymen types) from The Lord of the Rings trilogy. This is the sword that was remade from the shards of Narsil; if you're not sure what Narsil is, check out the History tab. For those of you who already know, we'll talk a little until the others get back from the history tab. This is an accurate reproduction of the sword that Aragorn/Elessar carried in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. Although the movie strayed from the book a bit when it came to Anduril, it had the same symbolic value in each: The sword was a symbol of Aragorn's right to claim Kingship.
This sword is quite possibly the best of the reproductions that have been made of any of the swords in the trilogy. Technically speaking, it's a hand-and-a-half sword, but that's like saying the Pope is a religious guy: this is not just any hand-and-a-half sword. The 420 stainless steel blade is flawless. The runes etched onto the blade are done tastefully and as faithful to Tolkien's descriptions as possible. The cross and pommel have an antiqued silver finish, the grip is wrapped with fine leather and, good lord, 24-karat gold plated fittings on the pommel and cross!? Anyway, Strongblade really recommends this sword to any fan of Lord of the Rings, or, heck, to any art lover out there.
The sword comes with a decorative wooden mounting board. Available separately is the Anduril Scabbard
, which is another insanely well crafted work of art. If you're planning to take Anduril out to shows or parties, we highly recommend you grab the scabbard too. Click here to see the scabbard.
