Forged by Elven smiths from the shards of Narsil in the last days of the Third Age of Middle-earth, Andúril both a sword and a symbol of hope, the glory and power of the ancient kings of men restored and born into battle in the glove of Aragorn, heir to the throne of Gondor.
Framed between devices of the sun and moon, Andúril bore Quenya inscriptions proclaiming its origin as Narsil, the blade that cut the Ring from Sauron's hand.
Andúril was designed by John Howe and made at Weta Workshop in New Zealand for The Lord of the Rings film trilogy by Weta's Master Swordsmith Peter Lyon.

Just received "Anduril" and must say the blade is ground to absolute perfection by Peter. Not only is this a beautiful weapon but an absolute piece of art. For a two-hander this sword has great balance unlike most fantasy weapons which are too heavy to be considered usable. Thank you Peter and Weta. This is the crown of my collection! Hide.

Stunning! As much faith as I had in Mr. Lyon, I still did not expect to be this blown away. I own several high-end swords, including the Atlantean and Father's swords from Albion Armorers. I have never seen a blade like this. It came in a wooden "coffin", wrapped in a sleeve of linen, which was a nice touch. Taking the linen off to reveal the blade for the first time was quite an experience. In fact, when I first put my hand on the linen and felt the blade beneath, I could tell immediately that this blade was unlike anything I had experienced before. The depth of the grinds was just amazing, and you could feel it. Once you remove that linen, light dances off the contoured blade, and you really do have to see it in person to appreciate the quality and skill that went into this sword. I've never seen a blade ground so deeply. Not to mention the depth of the engraving down the fuller. Combine all that with the perfect satin-finish, and you get exactly what you see in the film when Aragorn first pulls Anduril from the scabbard. WOW! You've got to go back and watch that sceen in ROTK again. I also purchased the optional hero scabbard and belt. They are so raw and authentic. Truly the perfect compliment to the perfect sword. Weta workshop... you guys are the best! Hide.

The scabbard is fully lined carbon fiber and covered in leather. The hardware on it is handsomely hand forged, finished and fitted separately. The belt is made from two pieces of leather and precisely embossed, tooled, sewn and punched. The fit and finish of all of the hardware especially the tight tolerances of the buckles and swivels would make a watchmaker proud.
The word beautiful doesnâ€™t begin to do the sword justice. The handle is leather wrapped, the blade is straight, true and the finish almost glows. The Elvish runes arenâ€™t etched but stamped into the blade and pommel. The balance point is right at the hilt and when held with hands on either side of the hilt, the sword feels almost neutral. It is quite easy to maneuver making it a formidable weapon. It is a phenomenal example of the Swordsmithâ€™s craft. Hide.
