‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ Orcrist - Sword of Thorin Oakenshield Photo

A couple of interesting The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey items for you today. First up, Richard Armitage has been getting plenty of attention for playing the "dreamy" dwarf Thorin Oakenshield in this Peter Jackson directed prequel. Now, you can own a replica of his sword, Orcrist, for only $199. (CLICK HERE). CB Swords has released a new photo of Thorin, along with the following description."In Third Age of Middle-earth, Thorin Oakenshield and his Company of Dwarves came upon a troll lair in Rhûdaur. There Thorin found an ancient Elven sword named Orcrist, forged by the high Elves of the West, in Gondolin. Thorin claimed Orcrist for his own and vowed to cleave Goblins with it once again. He wielded the sword through most of the Quest for Erebor, using it against the Goblins of the Misty Mountains. The Goblins called it "Biter" and hated and feared it.

The blade of Orcrist features a curved leaf shape on one side, and a straight edge on the other, a fitting design for a blade meant to cleave Orcs and Goblins. Adorning the pommel is an emblem of the heraldry of Ecthelion of the Fountain. The hilt is shaped from the tooth of a dragon. It is unknown if the tooth was acquired prior to the fifth battle of the First Age, or added to the sword with the inscription in the millennia after the Fall of Gondolin, most likely by the Dwarves of the North.
