Uh.....whatchamacallit by thingummy? Look in 'Unfinished Tales.' I read it but I don't remember another one, but there might be some there.

I know they're not a swords, but Gil-galad had the spear Aeglos and Tuor had the battleaxe Dramborleg.

Also, as he's not on your list... Turgon, the original owner of Gandalf's sword Glamdring.

Other than Beleg also carrying the bow, Belthronding and that Grond was Morgoth's Mace, I think you have them all covered. However, I once thought I saw the weapon of Huor or Hurin mentioned in one of The Silmarillion's battles. But of course I may be wrong as I could never find it again.

I know it ain't a sword, yet Dramborleg, the Axe of Tuor, seems a nice weapon nonetheless...

I was probablly thinking of Tuor's axe in my last post.

The weapon list found in the Encyclopedia of Arda is quite definitive. Look under 'Items' and then under 'Weapons and Arms'. :elfcool:

Are your friends book-fans or movie-fans?
In the movies, Arwen bore a sword named Hadhafang, Throng-cleaver. According to the Lost Road, there was such a name for a sword, but I was unable to find if Tolkien ever wrote of it being wielded.
