STING SWORD of BILBO BAGGINS (UC2892) by United Cutlery Sting was a magical weapon used by Bilbo Baggins in motion picture, THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY. Bilbo found it in a troll-hoard along with the swords Glamdring and Orcrist. Sting was likely forged by the elves of Gondolin in the First Age. Although it was only a dagger by the standard of Men or Elves, it made a handy short sword for a hobbit. This authentically detailed replica is a reproduction of the actual filming prop built by Weta Workshop of New Zealand and used in the motion picture. United Cutlery, industry leader in fine movie reproductions, has meticulously recreated the prop using only the finest grade materials and craftsmanship. Close attention to detail was a top priority.

It is presented with a wood wall display featuring graphic motifs from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, hardware and instructions, and includes a certificate of authenticity.

In this harrowing journey Bilbo and his Company of Dwarves came upon a troll lair in Rhûdaur. There they found two Elven swords, Glamdring, and Orcrist, and a knife. Bilbo claimed the knife for himself, and it was more of a sword to someone of his stature. He wielded the sword through most of the quest, famously using it against the Giant Spiders of Mirkwood to save the Company of Dwarves. After Bilbo had slain his first spider he declared, “I will give you a name, and I shall call you Sting.”
