    That sword looks pretty nice. I wonder why Gandalf rode with that sword instead of Glamdring...

    well Byz. it's here, we can thank observer for that. ( somehow I always fail in posting pics).

    I have a gut feeling you'll like it, being a die-hard Gondorian.

    Yet another one for UC to produce.

    It is defiantly not Faramirs sword. His sword has a distinct single acorn nut pommel, similar to old style Viking swords. Those types of pommel nuts varied from one to three nuts on the pommels. This one does not have that unique style. It does look Gondorian however from what I can see of the pommel, similar to Arogorn's Ranger sword. I am not certain who was the wielder of this sword or what type or race created it, but it is not Faramirs

    Here is a picture of Faramir's Sword

    http://gallery.fantasyvault.net/showphoto.php?photo=146&password=&sort=1&size=medium&cat=510&page=

    And here is a close up of the hilt

    And besides you said that this is a collection of the weapons from The Fellowship of the Ring. I don't think Faramir was in that movie, or am I mistaken
