    I was very pleased with my Narsil when I purchased it some time ago, but was suprised at how much it 'wobbles' If I give the pommel a little tap, the whole sword quivers as if alive. Should this be the case?

    Not that it really matters cos it just decorates my wall, but you never know when a rogue :balrog: might pop up.

    Thanks

    Most swords are made wobbly to absorb shock. My Narsil wobbles as well. Don't worry, your sword's healthy.

    They're swords, not crowbars. any blade less than 1/2 inch thick is expected to wobble, and depending on the length, a 1/2 inch thick blade can wobble too. Nothing to worry about.

    My ranger sword blade bounces of course but I just have a very slight wobbling in the hilt.
