Bilbo Baggins: I have... I have never used a sword in my life. Gandalf: And I hope you never have to. But if you do, remember this: true courage is about knowing not when to take a life, but when to spare one. This sword is everything I wanted it to be and MORE. It exceeds all of my expectations. This United Cutlery: UC2892 Sting Sword of Bilbo Baggins. I note that because UC made a version for the LOTR movies that is different. The Frodo Baggins Sting has elvish engraving on it... I assume the Elves of Rivendell modified the blade after Bilbo came back from the Dragon adventure. The blade is as solid as the come, LOTS of care went into the design and it's remarkable. You absolutely MUST purchase the scabbard. You can hang both the sword inside the scabbard, which is great! It has a locking mechanism when you slide the sword into the scabbard and makes a great sound when you take it out. This is perfect! I highly recommend you buying them. You won't be disappointed!
Absolutely amazing! It is so detailed and is the most amazing sword I have. And it comes sharpened! Bilbo is one of my favorite characters from literature and having his sword protects me from my fear of spiders. Thanks BudK!
This replica far exceeded my expectations! To start with its an exact copy from the Jackson Hobbit movie and to my suprise and delight, I found that it came Razor Sharp! I also purchased the scabbard along with it and it aswell is top quality and fits the sword quite well. I highly reccomend this for the serious collectors.
In this harrowing journey Bilbo and his Company of Dwarves come upon a troll lair in Rh??daur. There they find two Elven swords, Glamdring and Orcrist, and a knife. Bilbo claims the knife for himself and names it ???Sting?, although it was more of a sword to someone of his stature. This authentically detailed replica is a reproduction of the actual filming prop. The Sting sword features a stainless steel blade, solid metal hilt parts and an intricately detailed vine adorning the grip. It is presented with a wood wall display featuring graphic motifs from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and includes a certificate of authenticity. Scabbard available separately.
Sting was like Glamdring and Orcrist in that "being the work of Elvish smiths in the Elder Days these swords shone with a cold light, if any Orcs were near at hand." But only Sting was definitively described as glowing blue, or glittering with blue flame at its edges. However, when the fellowship entered Moria, it is said that "no gleam came from the blades of Sting, or Glamdring, and that was some comfort. For being the work of Elven smiths in elder days, these swords shone with a cold light if any orc were near at hand."
By the late Third Age, it came into the possession of three trolls dwelling in eastern Eriador. It was in their cave, in the year TA 2941, that Bilbo and his Dwarven companions found Sting alongside the Elven blades Glamdring and Orcrist. When rescuing Thorin and Company from the giant spiders of Mirkwood, Bilbo was inspired to give the sword its name after cutting himself free from a cocoon and slaying the spider guarding him.
Just before his nephew embarked on his quest to Mordor from Rivendell, Bilbo gave Sting to Frodo. Sam then took the weapon from his (seemingly dead) master and used it to good effect against Shelob on the borders of Mordor.
Found in a Trolls' hoard by Bilbo Baggins, Sting was an ancient Elven blade from the lost realm of Gondolin. Bilbo carried it through many adventures, naming it and having it inscribed with Elvish script.
Although Sting could not be classed as anything more than a short sword by human or elfish standards, (and termed as nothing more than a knife by some), at 22 inches long it is the perfect sized weapon for a hobbit.
"And I shall call you Sting!" We're less than two weeks from the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which means Tolkien mania is kicking back in. While you can purchase prop replicas of the various weapons from shops like United Cutlery and Weta, swordsmith Tony Swatton of the YouTube series "Men At Arms" tackles making a full replica of Bilbo's sword Sting from scratch. While this isn't exactly showing us what it was like when the elves forged the dagger, it is a badass video showing us what it's like to make one of these for real nowadays. Yea, I'd like my own real-life Sting to fend off (Mirkwood) Spiders, too.
Special thanks to GeekTyrant for the tip on this. The video is from the AWE me channel on YouTube, part of their Man At Arms series. "Every other Monday, master swordsmith Tony Swatton forges your favorite weapons from video games, movies, and television. This week, he tackles Bilbo's Sting from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. We were honored to have Kevin Lieber from Vsauce2 (of Legendary Swords) join us at the shop." You can find more info and details on the weapons made by Swatton on his website The Sword and the Stone. The latest Hobbit movie, The Desolation of Smaug, hits theaters on December 13th.
During the Quest of Erebor, in May 2941, Thorin and Company happened upon a trio of Trolls named Tom, Bert, and William who nearly ate them. Only the intervention of Gandalf saved the company from such a horrible fate.
During the scuffle, William dropped the key to their Trolls' cave, which contained all manner of treasure plundered from the trolls' victims. Bilbo Baggins recovered the key, allowing the company to claim the treasure in its entirety, including several fine Elven blades. Glamdring went to Gandalf, while its mate Orcrist was claimed by Thorin Oakenshield. Bilbo, too, claimed a blade: merely a dagger by the standards of Men or its original Elvish makers, and but a tiny pocket-knife for the trolls whose hoard it was found in, but it made an excellent short sword for a Hobbit.
When Bilbo was captured by goblins while crossing the Misty Mountains, the goblins failed to notice the weapon simply because Bilbo wore it inside his breeches. When Bilbo was separated from the others during their escape, this allowed him to rely on the dagger's glowing blade to light his way, as well as use it to keep a hungry Gollum at bay while he tried to find his way out of the labyrinthine tunnels in the roots of the mountains.
When Bilbo returned to the Shire in T.A. 2942, he brought his little dagger with him. He displayed it above the mantleplace, where it most likely was when Gandalf and Balin visited him seven years later in T.A. 2949. After the Farewell Party on September 22, T.A. 3001, Bilbo took Sting with him when he left Hobbiton, and it resided with the aged hobbit in Rivendell for the next 17 years. In T.A. 3018, just before the Fellowship of the Ring set off from Rivendell, Bilbo gave Sting to his nephew Frodo Baggins, as well as his wondrous coat of mithril mail, as a gift to protect him on the perilous journey to Mount Doom that lay ahead.
As a consequence of his centuries of corruption under the One Ring's influence, Gollum feared weapons of Elvish make like Sting, which made the knife a factor in aiding Frodo in temporarily taming the wretched creature. It also helped Frodo and Samwise Gamgee escape from the lair of the terrible Shelob in Cirith Ungol, and during the ensuing battle, even after paralyzing Frodo, the massive spider met its match in a determined Samwise Gamgee and learned how the Elvish weapon earned its name. Still armed with Sting, Sam stormed the Tower of Cirith Ungol in order to rescue Frodo, though he found little in the way of a fight, as the tower had seen a battle between its own forces over Frodo's mithril coat.
Sting also performed better than ordinary weapons in combat and against odd materials; it cut through the webs of giant spiders easily, whereas the blade that Sam brought from the Barrow-downs failed to cut through Shelob's webs. During the Battle of the Chamber of Mazarbul, Boromir's sword glanced off of the hide of a troll, but Sting was able to deal a painful wound.
A few weeks back, we told you about a man who forges iconic swords and weapons from movies with an emphasis on functionality. That means his creations are made to be used in combat (or chopping pineapples and cans of soda in half, which are what the demonstrations consist of).
