son of Denethor, the steward of Gondor, Boromir was a prince in all but
name: he was implanted into a noble house and heir apparent to a ruling
tradition that spanned back for a thousand years. Boromir was a proud
and strong man who was considered by his fellow soldiers to be one of
the most skilled swordsman of Gondor. He triumphed as a captain in the
Gondorian army while leading the forces against Sauron at Osgiliath,
where he deterred a throng of Orcs that had overrun the former capital
city. Following a powerful dream Boromir shared with his brother Faramir,
Boromirs father commanded his son to ride north as the ambassador for
Gondor to attend the Council of Elrond. He later agreed to join the
Fellowship on its quest to destroy The One Ring. In a single moment of
weakness, Boromir attempted to take the Ring from Frodo, which would in
turn lead to his demise as he single-handedly defended hobbits, Merry
and Pippin, from the hands of Saruman's Uruk-hai before falling under a
rain of arrows. Boromir's sword was single-handed, big, broad and
powerful - a fit complimentary to its owner. To use it required someone
with great strength, which this skilled warrior abundantly possessed.
The blades flattened diamond shape and equally wide fuller reduced
weight, yet retained strength in the end of the blade by stopping just
short of the tip. It was equally effective for slashing against lightly
armored opponents and for thrusting into more heavily protected enemies.
The guard, similar to that of his fathers sword, showed a warriors
flourish in that it was formed from a square-edged piece of steel that
had been twisted before being curved into a crescent. The handgrip was
wide like the blade, and the pommel was an elegant and simple piece of
steel that added weight to balance the blade.
This is a high quality blade and an officially licensed reproduction
from the feature film - makes an excellent collector's item and gift!
