This sword of Gandalf is full size at 36" blade length. A must for any Lord of the Rings fan. This is the best replica on the market.
Glamdring, along with Orcrist, its mate, are described in The Hobbit as having "beautiful scabbards and jewelled hilts", and are inscribed with runes which Gandalf cannot read. However he immediately recognizes that "they are not made by any troll, nor by any smith among men in these parts and days." Later, Elrond of Rivendell deciphers the runes, and explains the swords' purpose and origin - crafted by the Elves of Gondolin for the "Goblin-wars". Elrond calls Glamdring "Foe-hammer that the king of Gondolin once wore". The Goblins call it "Beater". Gandalf continued to use Glamdring through the events of The Lord of the Rings. He most probably took the sword with him to the Undying Lands at the end of the Third Age
