"The Sword of Elendil was forged anew by elvish smiths, and on its blade was traced a device of seven stars set between the crescent Moon and the rayed Sun, and about them were written many runes; for Aragorn son of Arathorn was going to war upon the marches of Mordor. Very bright was that sword when it was made whole again; the light of the sun shone redly in it, and the light of the moon shone cold, and its edge was hard and keen. And Aragorn gave it a new name and called it Anduril, Flame of the West." Will this new reforged sword, "Anduril", have any changes from its original form as "Narsil Sword of Elendil"? Will it have new engravings on it as stated in the above quote? From all observations we can see no physical changes or differences between the two. To be honest we just do not know until the release of the official specifications sheets and photographs are released by United Cutlery. United Cutlery is limited to reproducing props in the movies and have gone to great extremes to make sure that there Lord of the Rings reproductions are as close as possible to the original props used in the movies. They cannot take any artistic liberties or change from this because it is a terms of the License agreement set by New Line Cinama...etc. So what ever differences there are between Narsil & Anduril depends entirely on what differences the designers of Narsil and Anduril put into the original pieces or props. Ben Wooten designed the sword "Narsil", production artist John Howe and world renowned Tolkien Illustrator designed the handle, production sword smith Peter Lyon made the sword, and David Salo translated the runes on the pommel. Now the all important question is what surprises did they add Anduril to make it unique from Narsil? We will see in a few months I guess!
