United Cutlery’s Anduril, sword of the hero Aragorn from the Lord of the Rings saga, is no cheap imitation. This blade recreates the legendary weapon forged from the shards of Narsil, the sword shattered during the battle at the end of the Second Age. The two-handed broadsword Anduril matches the Tolkien weapon in size — 52-7/8 inches overall with a 1/4-inch thick blade 40-5/8 inches in length. Anduril could be a fine sword to carry as well as display, provided you acquire the matching sheath.
Materials in this sheath are top notch, something refreshing to see in an industry that often makes fine blades housed in cheap scabbards. Twenty-four carat gold plated decorations, antiqued metal fittings and buckles, and genuine leather straps lend functional authenticity to the design. The appearance of the 44-5/8-inch LOTR Anduril scabbard matches the counterpart in the movie The Return of the King. Originally the sheath was designed to strap to the saddle of King Elessar’s horse, but fittings allow for use by foot travelers as well. This scabbard fits either of three LOTR swords from United: Anduril, Narsil or the Anduril Limited Edition.
In keeping with the mythical theme, runes inscribe the plate of the scabbard with a message in the ancient language of Quenya. The phrase etched on the plate, written in the runes of Eregion and bracketed by the kingdom’s symbols of sun and moon, translates as “Flame of the West.”
