The Lord of the Rings: Hadhafang: Sword of Arwen

The future of civilization rests in the fate of the One Ring

With over 100 Million copies sold in over 40 languages, millions have grown up with "Lord of the rings", the classic epic tale.

Sword of Arwen

Considered by millions to be the greatest fantasy adventure story ever told.

J.R.R. Tolkien’s phenomenal epic trilogy chronicles the struggle between good and evil for possession of a magical ring, lost for centuries, that can shift the balance of power in the world.

"One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in darkness bind them"

The book trilogy will be presented in a trilogy of feature films from New Line cinema, first will be the "Fellowship of the ring" then, "The Two Towers" and finally, "The Return of the King".

United® Cutlery, the industry leader in movie reproductions, has been awarded the license from New Line Cinema to reproduce swords from all three Lord of the rings films.

They have meticulously reproduced the actual prop swords using only the finest grade materials and craftsmanship of the highest quality from the "Fellowship of the ring.

Each sword is presented with a wood wall plaque and a certificate of authenticity.

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.
