Telchar was trained by Gamil Zirak, another great smith. Among his works were Angrist (the knife that freed the Silmaril from the Iron Crown), Narsil (the sword of Elendil, later reforged for Aragorn as Andúril), and the Dragon-helm of Dor-lómin.
Other versions of the legendarium
Telchar appears for the first time in the legendarium in The Lay of the Children of Húrin, simply named as the creator of the dragon-helm. In the later Quenta Noldorinwa, Telchar is said to be from Belegost, instead of Nogrod as in the Narn.
