Andúril's sheath

Revision as of 22:48, 10 September 2011 by Gamling (Talk | contribs)

Before the Company of the Ring left Lothlórien, Galadriel presented each of them with gifts. The first gift was given to Aragorn. It was a sheath made for his sword Andúril. The sheath was "overlaid with a tracery of flowers and leaves wrought of silver and gold, and on it were set in elven-runes formed of many gems the name Andúril and the lineage of the sword." Galadriel told that "the blade that is drawn from this sheath shall not be stained or broken even in defeat."[1]
