    So I just finished watching ROTK again and decided to pause on the section where the Witchking stands over Eowyn after the blow the breaks her arm and shield. I had noticed that he carries a sword as well as the flail, but can't make out the detail on the sword too well. Does anybody know if this is the same sword it carries from the outset of the movie or another (particularly the one rumored to have been created for Sauron)?

    I looked closely last time I watched it and it is the same sword that UC reproduced. I haven't gone back and compared it to the weathertop scene but since UC made that reproduction for the first movie I assume its the same.

    Yes, it is the same sword (prop) he used at Weathertop.
