His name was something like "Saeros", and he was one of the nobles of Doriath who insulted Túrin's mother and people and then later attacked him with a sword and shield. However, Túrin also killed his good friend and faithful companion Beleg strongbow, whom he mistook in the dark of a storm for an orc come to torture him more.



My question is, could anyone in the fellowship use their sword to kill a stationary Shelob in one blow?

From the Two Towers, chapter 10




 But Shelob was not as dragons are, no softer spot had she save only her eyes. Knobbed and pitted with corruption was her age-old hide, but ever thickened from within with layer on layer of evil growth. The blade scored it with a dreadful gash, but those hideous folds could not be pierced by any strength of men, not though Elf or Dwarf should forge the steel or the hand of Beren or of Túrin wield it.




So clearly just having an elven blade won't kill Shelob in one shot. By the way, doesn't Aragorn (and Legolas as well) have an elven blade? Also, Gandalf should qualify as someone possesing only the strength of men (which in my opinon is greater than the strength of elves or dwarves) because of this passage from part four section two: the Istari, from Unfinished Tales.




...but clad in bodies of as of {perhaps a typo on the pdf I'm using because my book is a flight of stairs away} Men, real and not feigned, but subject to the fears and pains and weariness of earth...




So he has a blade made by elves, and the earthly body and thus strength of a human, which means that he cannot pierce those hideous folds.

But he could kill her if he stabbed him in the eyes
