One of the most popular classes of movie swords that ever went into the industry is the Lord of the Rings Swords. These are the swords that were made after the actual props that were used in the hit movie the Lord of the Rings trilogy, which was adapted from the novel written by R.R. Tolkien. The weapons were forged the same way the props were, and some of them were even enhanced to make the sword look more presentable and durable to any collector who might be interested in them.
One such popular prop that many of the LOTR fans went after were the Legolas Fighting Knives. The name of the sword alone already points out why the swords were very popular, as they were wielded by Legolas, the elven warrior who aided Aragorn and Frodo fight the dark forces of Sauron and finally destroy the Ring.
Because he is an elf, most of the viewers of the movie would initially see Legolas as a natural archer – someone who is skilled with the bow and arrow. But the epic trilogy will show that Legolas was also skilled in close combat, being able to fight fiercely with the Legolas Fighting Knives. There are lots of scenes in the movie that Legolas would be seen fighting alongside his allies in close combat with the Legolas Fighting Knives rather than taking his bow and arrow and targeting them from a distance. Being a representative of the elves, Legolas’ participation in battle showed viewers how elves were very versatile in battle, being able to fight efficiently using both close and long range weapons.
Aside from the fact that the Fighting Knives are very sturdy, they are also well forged aesthetically. The handles sport a vine-like design carved upon it to match the nature of the elves in the movie.
The Legolas Fighting Knives are a very unique addition to any sword collection. This holds true especially for those who are collecting as fans of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. They also come with a certificate of authenticity to display along with the knives themselves.
