This is the reforged blade of Narsil, the sword wielded by Aragorn, King of Gondor. The inscription down the length of the blade on both sides is in the Tolkien language of Quenya, written in the runes of Eregion, that say: “Nányë Andúril i né Narsil i macil Elendilo. Lercuvanten i máli Mordórëo”. This translates to: “I am Andúril who was Narsil, the sword of Elendil. Let the thralls of Mordor flee me.” “The Sword of Elendil was forged anew by elvish smiths, and on its blade was traced a device of seven stars set between the crescent Moon and the rayed Sun, and about them were written many runes; for Aragorn son of Arathorn was going to war upon the marches of Mordor. Very bright was that sword when it was made whole again; the light of the sun shone readily in it, and the light of the moon shone cold, and its edge was hard and keen. And Aragorn gave it a new name and called it Andúril, Flame of the West.”
