Number 14

14. Anduril (The Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien): Anduril, the Flame of the West, was forged from the shattered remnants of Narsil: the blade that cut the Ring from Sauron’s hand. When its wielder Isildur fell in battle, the shards were preserved by the Rangers of the North. Later, the shards were forged anew as Anduril, the Flame of the West, and carried by Aragorn in the War of the Ring.

This sword makes the list based on it long history and significance to the Lord of the Rings story. In the right hands Anduril has proven to be a high caliber weapon with astounding effectiveness. Although lacking any magical abilities the sword had shown the abilities to dispel magic even of very powerful opponents and held power of the Undead Hill Warriors until released by Aragon the wielder

“Very bright was that sword when it was made whole again; the light of the sun shone redly in it, and the light of the moon shone cold, and its edge was hard and keen. And Aragorn gave it a new name and called it Andúril, Flame of the West.”
