    Wonderful the mistery sword has been discovered. I got my DVD and zoomed in on the sword when Gandalf is dismounting at Isenguard, and they are definetly the same sword. End of discusion, the quillions are the same, cross gaurd is the same, same leather wrap on the handle, same pommel. Congatulations to whoever it was that said it was his riding sword, I have lost track by now. Oh by the way, I am still resolute in thinking that, that is striders eating knife and not some hobbit dagger. First of all in the movie we don't even see her give it to them, and second of all she does,nt in the books.But I cold be wrong :dragon:

    im sorry, but you definately are.

    in the SEE of the FotR DVD you can see her giving the daggers to them, and somewhere in this thread theres a link to antoher pic of that sword case and there you can see it clearly.

    I have not seen them to begin with, so to me it looked like the strider knife oh well.Now I don't think it's elven dagger, but the eating knife that sits along side the scabbard. Anbody else think its a hobbit dagger thing.I am gonna go look again.

    That is definitely a Noldorian dagger given to one of the hobbits. 100% sure. It's not even close to being any of Aragorn's weapons.

    Merrick, that sword has positively been ID's as Gandalf's Riding Sword. Théodred's sword would look much more Rohirric.

    sefranox is right elvenblademaster. the gift giving is kinda different in jackson's version of LotR, but the daggers of the noldori are given to pippen and merry. one of their scabbards is pulled out of the (orc corpse) fire by gimli in the two towers.

    I think it's just a basic sword which is meant to be merely practical
    he prob got it in rivendell.

    Maybe he gave saruman a fake ring of power and then saruman in his lust for the ring did'nt stop to throw it in the fire and check. thats why he was P.O. at gandalf.

    All I'm saying is that the dagger in the display case is one of the Noldorian daggers of Pippin or Merry.

    byz and elven - please get back on topic.
