    Orcrist a single edged sword?

    I still haven't gotten a good look at Orcrist yet from the upcoming 'Hobbit' movie but it seems to be single edged from the few photos I've seen. A falchion type sword maybe? I always thought Orcrist would be a doubled edged weapon but a singled edge sword would be kind of cool and interesting. Are there any photos of the entire sword yet? I have tried scanning the net but haven't found anything.

  2. per Peter Lyon in a conversation we had a while back, they went single edged because its the Goblin CLEAVER... so they took that as meaning single edged...
    Still, a very unique design that folks will no doubt be reproducing for years to come..

    Boy, I can't wait to see the movie! It will be also cool to see the sword designs of the Mirkwood elves and the Lakemen.
