With over 100 million copies sold in over 40 languages, millions have grown up with The Lord of the Rings, the classic epic tale considered by millions to be the greatest fantasy-adventure story ever told. J.R.R. Tolkien's phenomenal epic trilogy chronicles the struggle between good and evil for the possession of a magical ring. The book trilogy was named the most popular book of the 20th Century and has been presented in a series of feature films from New Line Cinema.
Sting is the magical short sword from the legendary city of Gondolin, made by Elves in the ancient days. Bilbo Baggins, Frodo's uncle and original Ring bearer, found it in a troll lair in Rhûdaur. He carried it with him when he originally acquired the Ring from Gollum and wielded it through most of his quest. Sting ultimately saved his life in his fight against the Giant Spiders of Mirkwood. On the blade and the guard, the following Tengwar-runes are engraved in Sindarin - the language of the Grey Elves:
Maegnas aen estar nín - dagnir in yngyl im (=Sting is my name; I am the spider's bane).
The blade of the sword glows blue when Orcs, the violent foot soldiers of Sauron, draw near.
Sixty years later, it is up to his nephew Frodo and the chosen Fellowship to cast the Ring back into the fires of Mount Doom, where it was originally forged, and to destroy it once and for all. Bilbo bestows his sword upon Frodo to serve him on his harrowing journey.
