The Dark Elf Gurthang sword (#1553)

“There is malice in this sword. The dark heart of the smith still dwells in it. It will not love the hand it serves, neither will it abide with you long.”

The Gurthang is a sword inspired by a dark fate. In J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion, the Gurthang is a meteoric iron sword originally forged by the Dark Elf Eöl but made most famous in the hands of the tragic hero Túrin Turambar. Unlike other swords in Toliien’s work Gurthang was said to have a personality, to rejoice in war and lament over the blood of the innocent. Countless orcs fell before its edge, and it was even used to slay the Father of Dragons. Our version of Gurthang is a two-handed longsword with a 32” double-fullered blade. The curved guard with elven script and black hardwood grip – carved with elegant knotwork – show the weapon’s Elven inspired heritage. The long handle and heavy pommel provide excellent leverage and bring the point of balance down close to the guard, giving this sword a lively presence. Holding it, one feels as though they too could face off against a dragon.
