Thranduil wielding his sword

Thranduil's sword is the Elven sword that was used by Thranduil in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

Portrayal in adaptations

Peter Jackson's The Hobbit films

During the Dwarven Quest to reclaim their homeland of the Lonely Mountain from the Dragon Smaug, the Mirkwood Elvenking Thranduil had forged and owned a sword of Elvish manufacture.

It first appears in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and appears as a long Elven sword with a long but bare grip and a curved hilt with carved Elvish runes on the blade. It has a straight blade.

Thranduil had used this sword to execute the Orc soldier Narzug after an interrogation.

At the Battle of Five Armies he wields a pair of great Elven swords, designed to be wielded double-handed, but so beautifully weighted and balanced that each can be wielded with one hand. All of Thranduil's movie weaponry is the result of artistic license, as J.R.R. Tolkien never described Thranduil's armaments in the books.
