The movies certainly portray Gandalf using his staff as a weapon, but is this explicitly described in JRRT’s writings?
For the purposes of this question, using the staff to work magic would not count. I’m asking about using the staff as a conventional, physical weapon.
Also, I’m assuming that the breaking of the bridge when confronting the Balrog counts as magic. (And even if it weren’t, I’m more interested in its use to make a direct attack against an enemy.)
