Arwen's Sword: Hadhafang
Arwen's sword will surely be a must have for
collectors... It caught our attention in that great film scene
at the river ford, where Arwen says "If you want
him, come and claim him!"
Arwen's™ sword is called Hadhafang which
means Throng-cleaver. It once belonged to the Elven princess Idril,
who wed a mortal man and bore Earendil, the father of Elrond who
in turn was father to Arwen.

Before Arwen's birth Elrond wielded Hadhafang
at the end of the second age of Middle-Earth, during the Last
Alliance of Elves and Men in the great battle against Sauron.
Later his daughter Arwen used Hadhafang when she aided Frodo in
his escape from the Ringwraiths.
Inscribed on the blade are runes in the Elven
language of Sindarin that say "aen estar Hadhafang i chathol
hen, thand arod dan i thang an i arwen." Which translates
to "this blade is called Hadhafang, a noble defense against
the enemy throng for a noble lady." The original inscription
included the last line "Idril i hel en aran Gond dolen,"
which translates to "Idril, daughter of the king of the Hidden
Rock (Gondolin)." It was dropped from the finished prop due
to a lack of space.
There is an intentional pun in the inscription
- the Sindarin translation of "noble lady" is "arwen",
so in effect, the blade claims to be for Arwen, even though it
was made for her grandmother.
