Sting™ was carried by Frodo Baggins™ on his quest through Middle-earth in the Lord of the Rings™ trilogy. Forged by elven smiths in the First Age, the blade glows blue when orcs or Saruman’s fearsome Uruk-hai are near. This proved invaluable countless times throughout Baggins’ epic quest into the heart of Mordor to cast the one Ring into the fires of Mt. Doom. This replica mirrors the prop used in the Lord of the Rings™ trilogy down to the last detail, including the flowing Sindarin inscription on the blade and guard. The ancient text translates to “Sting™ is my name; I am the spider’s bane,” referring to the spider Shelob – slain by Frodo™ in the dark pass of Cirith Ungol.
