    Well, I'm guessing this isn't Sauron's sword. I have a theory.

    This seems to be a prototype Witchking sword. There are pictures on the Fellowship EDVD of Sauron (or a Sauron like character) holding it. Could this be the Witchking when his armor was quoted as "looking too much like Saurons?"

    That would seem to make sense, that this was going to be the Witchking's sword before they changed that sword to his current one, and then afterwards they changed his armor.

    Perhaps they might give this sword to the Mouth of Sauron. The Weapons and Warfare books says that he and Aragorn fight briefly before Sauron's army emerges from the Black Gate.

    Well, that sword is in Sauron's gallery on the edvd in addition to showing him holding it in some video clips. Did you scan that picture from the Weapons and Warfare book? It's so much bigger than it is in the book.
    Since Sauron isn't seen with it I wanted The Mouth of Sauron to have it but his sword is the same as the Witchking's. I'll still hope for it to be seen somewhere.

    Who says it's the same as the Witchkings? That sounds kind of stupid to me.

    The Weapons and Warfare book shows the Witchkings sword on the Mouth of sauron page. Could be a mistake, they could have similar style swords, or perhaps the Mouth gets that sword when the Witchking gets his mace.

    The Mouth of Sauron also has the Witchking's sword in the RoTK game.

    Well, the game also shows all the Ringwraiths with the witchking's sword. In the commercial, anyway.

    Hopefully they actually designed a new sword for him, seeing as he actually uses it. It's not like Denathor ever uses his, but he still gets his own.

    I don't think it would be a sword that was witchkings or something, since they wouldn't make it with the idea, the would finalize the drawing before they first made it.

    Where did you get this picture Justice? It sure is Sauron-styled. See the pommel that is shaped like his mace-head? And the crossguard has that same pointy quality his armour does.

    I like the three fullers where two end along the way, never seen anything like it. With those fullers it's light so easy to handle one-handed.

    Wow, I love that sword!

    On the video game, the Witch-king has his sword plus a mace, and the Mouth of Sauron also has the Witch-king sword.

    I started a thread on this before, but there were no good pics of this sword. It should definatley be made. It is a great bad guy sword. Especially if it gets passed around to the mouth of sauron as well. What a sweet sword. I would love to have that. Lets start a petition for this one too!

    I bet that is the Sword of the Mouth of Sauron. Its way too bad not be used in ROTK.
