Middle-earth Weaponry Quiz

Ahhh, those nice, shiny daggers.  Who among us doesn't want one?  Maybe you even own a replica?  I don't actually have any replica weaponry from Middle-earth, but wow, I would love to.

(Note: not all weapons shown are on this list.)

Your challenge is to match up the names of the famous weapons (first list) with the name of the person who wielded them (second list).  Some of these are easy.  Some are very hard.  I admit that I looked a bunch up on the Lotr Wiki because I did not know them.  So don't feel bad if you don't either.  They're all from The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and The Silmarillion.  Just so you know.

I'm putting comments on "moderate" now so your answers in the comments will be kept secret and safe until after I post the answers and everyone's scores on Saturday.

  2. Okay, so I'm not really good at this probably, because it's only The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring I've read, but I recognize some of the names, so...
    I'll just do the names which I think they belong to.
    Obviously, Sting belongs to Bilbo Baggins and I think Aeglos belonged to Aragorn and Orcrist to Thorin Oakenshield. And Glamdring or Ringil to Gandalf.
    Phew, I'm so bad at this. The names all look alike!
    I'll just put the list down.
    (Warning: there might be a lot of guesses)

  3. Uhm, so I don't know all of these, but I'll give it a try.
    (Warning: there will be a lot of guesses and when my score comes out it will most likely be one good, the rest wrong)

    Well, at least I tried :)
    I'm not sure if I did anything right. The only I'm 100% sure of is Bilbo and Sting. The others are ranging from 1% to 70%

    I had to guess on Thingol and Tuor's, so they might be backwards 😂😂 I'm surprised Gurthang wasn't included.
