Another amazing post and poem - as always, I am in awe!!

I thought you might be interested in this little snippet by Bill Welden who I believe is a weapons expert who visited the LOTR set:

The actors are as different from one another as the seven races of Middle Earth. Elijah Wood (who plays Frodo) is warm, sincere and enthusiastic. He unsheathes Sting and shows it to me. It is a product of Weta Workshop: a perfectly functional sword, or rather a knife, scaled up (though it has not been sharpened). At the base of the blade is a beautiful filigree design incorporating Elvish lettering. In fact, the words are Sindarin. In the middle I read "dagnir in" meaning "...killer of the...", but then Elijah must dash off to resume filming. He is delighted that his sword has a history

What a great quote, Paulie. I had never read that. I hope that is going to be in an up-coming chapter -- or has it already been included and I've forgotten it?

Thanks Mechtild - you know, I'm not certain if I've included the quote or not!! I'd definitely got it put aside for inclusion but I've a feeling it got left out. I will have to check and perhaps edit it in somewhere:)
