Narvi (originally Ngarvi or Ñarvi) was a dwarf of Khazad-dûm (Moria) in the mid-Second Age.

He was probably of Durin's Folk.


Narvi was best known for his part in making of the Doors of Durin for the West-gate of Moria, on which Celebrimbor, an elf, wrote the inscription. He worked closely with the Gwaith-i-Mírdain; Celebrimbor in particular was his close friend. It can be implied that the relationship between Dwarves and Elves had not yet subsided.[1]

Portrayal in adaptations

In the game Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Narvi is mentioned as being the creator, or the one who commissioned, Celebrimbor's bow, Azkâr. After the player completes enough missions to forge the legend of his weapons, the game's description of the bow reads: "Azkâr. Narvi had me made for the ring-smith and for his loyal service. His arrows truly may they hit their mark [sic]."[2]
