Replica of Glamdring, the original sword from the movie. Glamdring was the sword belonging to the King of Gondolin, who, as reported in The Silmarillion, was named Turgon. As befitted the rank of a High King, Glamdring was made with unsurpassed craftsmanship and effortlessly cut the chains with which the orcs had bound Thorin Oakenshield and his companions. It is said to have slain so many Orcs that they feared it, calling it the Slayer. After the fall of Gondolin it disappeared for many thousands of years. On the blade there was a runic inscription that even Gandalf could not decipher. According Elrond the inscription was written in the runes of Gondolin, which obviously was not written in the Cirth script. In 2941 it was found by Gandalf, the dwarves and Bilbo Baggins in the treasure belonging to a troll, together with its sister blade Orcrist and a dagger that Bilbo baptised Sting. How it got there, no one could explain. As with Sting and Orcrist, it shimmers blue in the presence of orcs.
