This Hadhafang sword is fit for a warrior princess. And when we say warrior princess we are by no means talking about Xena. It’s from The Lord Of the Rings trilogy, wielded by the elven princess Arwen, and showcased twice in the recent films directed by Peter Jackson.
The sword appears the first time with Arwen’s father Elrond during the Last Alliance battle against the evil Sauron. Later on, Arwen uses this same sword to defend Frodo the hobbit from the Ringwraiths.
Inscribed on the sword is a series of gold-colored runes in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Elven language of Sindarin, which translates “This blade is called Hadhafang, a noble defense against the enemy throng for a noble lady.”
Its blade is made from tempered and sharpened 420 J2 surgical-quality stainless steel, reaching full-tang into the handle and measuring 30 inches in length.
The gorgeous handle is made from solid wood, topped with a metal pommel, and engraved with gold-colored vine patterns signifying the realm of the Elves.
United Cutlery manufactures the official movie replica version of this sword, and that’s the best one you’ll find. It comes with a wooden display stand decorated with a silk-screened elven design as well as a parchment certificate of authenticity, just to prove it’s the real deal.
