Never fear, the Goblin-biter is here! This sensational Hobbit Thorin Oakenshield Orcrist Sword is an authentically detailed replica from United Cutlery that measures 38 3/4-inches long and is modeled after the filming prop built by Weta Workshop in New Zealand and used by actor Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
Its 25 7/8-inch blade is made from AUS-6 stainless steel and features an etched runic inscription. The hilt is crafted with solid metal parts, simulated gemstones, and an acrylic-resin grip cast from the original prop. Not to worry, the Thorin Oakenshield Orcrist Sword includes a certificate of authenticity and arrives with a wood wall display. Ages 18 and up.
In the Third Age of Middle-earth, Thorin Oakenshield and his Company of Dwarves came upon a troll lair in Rhūdaur. There Thorin found an ancient Elven sword named Orcrist, forged by the high Elves of the West, in Gondolin. Thorin claimed Orcrist for his own and vowed to cleave Goblins with it once again. He wielded the sword through most of the Quest for Erebor, using it against the Goblins of the Misty Mountains. The Goblins called it "Biter," and hated and feared it.
The blade of Orcrist features a curved leaf shape on one side, and a straight edge on the other, a fitting design for a blade meant to cleave Orcs and Goblins. Adorning the pommel is an emblem of the heraldry of Ecthelion of the Fountain. The hilt is shaped from the tooth of a dragon. It is unknown if the tooth was acquired prior to the fifth battle of the First Age, or added to the sword with the inscription in the millennia after the Fall of Gondolin, most likely by the Dwarves of the North.
Inscriptions on the sword in Elven runes include:
On the guard is the name Orcrist "Goblin-cleaver"
Blade inscription (both sides): "The serpents tooth"
