When Gandalf arrives in Isengard, and takes off his hat to greet Saruman, there is a sword attached to the saddle of his horse, as highlighted in the picture. What is this sword? I don't think it's Glamdring.


Glamdring, Foe Hammer

This is indeed one of the variations of Glamdring made by Weta Workshop, the prop designers for both the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film series.

From this link on their site. You can see the sword in the top right of the image but I've also provided as screenshot here:

Glamdring from Weta Glamdring from video

If you look at the two photos you'll see the two hilts are indeed the same.

I've touched up the photo a bit. You can now clearly see the crosses on the grip as well as below down the top of the scabbard. The guard is also clearly the same.

    @maguirenumber6 Look at Mr. Fancy bringing out all his sword knowledge! (Thanks for the edits :-D ) – Edlothiad May 7 '17 at 17:21

    you can think the sky is purple and full of unicorns - that doesn't make it so @anakindchosenone05192005 - that is clearly the same sword – NKCampbell May 7 '17 at 23:38

    If that's Galmdring, then how did he reclaim it again later during the battle at moria – The Witch King of Angmar May 10 '17 at 19:14
