The Lord of the Rings Ranger sword was inspired both by the novels of J.R.R. Tolkien and the films based on his stories. The Ranger Sword is hand Crafted with 5160 High Carbon steel, dual hardened to Rockwell of 60 at cutting edge and 48-50 at the core. As with all our battle ready swords, the tang is peened over the pommel. The beautifully detailed leather handle is accentuated by the unique pommel, making this one of the most recognized fantasy swords. The blade is forged with a deep full length fuller.
The Dúnedain Rangers are pivotal characters in the world of Middle Earth. Many centuries before the start of the Lord of the Rings series there was the great island kingdom of Numenor. The rulers of this kingdom were the human descendants of the half-elven Elros, a great lord and powerful foe of evil. The island kingdom was raised to be the stronghold of Elros’ people, and for many years his descendants kept peace and were faithful followers of the Valar, the holy rulers of Middle Earth. They had great power and freedom, only forbidden one thing – to never sail into the west, and set foot on sacred Valinor. As the kingdom waxed in wealth and its rulers waned in wisdom they sought to challenge even the Valar, and set sail with a mighty fleet to Valinor. This fleet was utterly destroyed, and the island kingdom sundered and plunged beneath the waves. Only a small remnant was saved.
This remnant became the Middle Earth kingdoms of Gondor and Arnor and were ruled over by Elendil and his heirs. However, some of the surviving Numenoreans left these kingdoms and travelled to the north. There, they dedicated themselves to the eradication of evil and the defense of the free peoples of Middle Earth. They became known as the Dúnedain Rangers, and despite their efforts were widely distrusted by the folk who lived in these lands. Their thankless tasks unnoticed, they nevertheless fought tirelessly against overwhelming odds. None of these Rangers were anything less than heroes, and none of them more famous than the one they called Strider.
Based on the sword of Strider the Ranger from the Lord of the Rings, the Ranger Sword is one of our best sellers. Made with Darksword Armory’s usual attention to detail and sturdy construction, this two handed sword is an epic weapon to use against the forces of darkness.
The Ranger Sword is a hefty inspirational two handed sword. The broad long blade delivers lethal, powerful blows aided by it’s weight. The Ranger sword, at 4 lbs 11 oz, is by far our heaviest battle ready sword, mainly deriving from the large pommel and guard. Despite it’s weight, the sword is well balanced, responsive and rugged. In a nutshell, the Ranger sword is reliable and virtually indestructible!
