Sword of Turgon - Foe Hammer

Foe Hammer is the sword of the Elf Turgon, King of Gondolin. After the sacking of Gondolin it disappeared for 6000 years, to reappear in a Troll hoard with it's partner sword Orcrist, and thus claimed by Gandalf. It was described by Tolkien as ""...white and gold...in a ruel-bone (ivory) sheath,..." (Unfinished Tales) and with a "...beautiful scabbard and jeweled hilt" (The Hobbit).

The name of the sword is engraved in Cirth runes - "GLAMDRING" meaning Foe Hammer.
