Collecting The Precious – United Cutlery Sting and Scabbard

October 15, 2012 at 10:22 pm by elessar  - 

United Cutlery, makers of some of best sword replicas on the market, is back in Middle-Earth! UC will be creating replicas of many of the items you will see in this winter’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Over the next several days we will introduce the many items that UC has up on their website now, as well as items that will be coming out in the future for collectors to add to their collections. The first item we bring to you is Bilbo’s sword Sting which has been recreated in stunning detail. Of course, every sword needs a scabbard so collectors will also be able to purchase Sting’s scabbard. Sting can be Pre-Ordered from Budk right now for $130. The scabbard will be available for Pre-Order in December.

    Does anyone know why the elvish words are absent from the new edition of sting? I noticed they are absent in the “Glamdring-Orcrist naming” trailer.
    Perhaps the elvish is put on later by elrond on Bilbo’s return journey.

    Does anyone know why the new “Hobbit” version of Sting does not have elvish on the blade and hilt. I noticed this also in the “Glamdring and Orcrist” naming trailer.

    Perhaps Elrond puts the engraving on the blade on Bilbo’s return trip.

    I cannot speek for Glamdring or Orcrist, but my understanding is that unlike the other two swords Sting never had a name until Bilbo named it. The inscription, which says ‘Maegnas is my name, I am the spider’s bane’ was, as you say, presumably etched on the sword in Rivendell after the events of The Hobbit. ‘Maegnas’ is supposed to mean ‘Sting’ in Sindarin and has the same root as the name ‘Maeglin’ (a character in The Silmarillion) which means ‘Sharp Glance’. Of course the inscription & the name ‘Maegnas’ are both pure Jackson.
