Orcrist (1:1)
The sword of Thorin Oakenshield from 'The Hobbit.'
About this creation
Building instructions for this model are now available for sale; please visit my Ebay account for details!

While he is not pleased by its elvish origin, Thorin finds a good blade in Orcrist (‘the Goblin-Cleaver’) when he uses it to great effect against the goblins of the Misty Mountains. Like its counterparts, Glamdring (‘the Foe-Hammer’) and Sting, Orcrist was crafted by the elves of Gondolin and glows blue when orcs and goblins are nearby.



I started this project back in late February (2013) before constructing Gimli’s walking axe, but set the blade aside when other things came up. I have finally completed it, although I have not yet constructed a scabbard for this particular sword; I would rather work on the other projects I have coming!



The replica sword measures 38.75” long like the official movie prop and weighs 0.89 lbs. It’s shorter than Glamdring but features a broader blade, allowing me to make it even stronger than Glamdring (which is useful when I get the urge to swing it around!)



The crossguard and pommel were the most challenging parts of the model, with the embellished pommel being fixed at an angle from the grip.



The horn-shaped grip represents a dragon's tooth which the elvish swordsmiths recycled. What will the people at Weta think of next?



Known not-so-fondly by the goblins as “Biter,” Orcrist is shown here with my model of “Beater,” the only thing that the goblins hate worse if that’s possible.



Thank you for visiting, and let me know what you think!

Quoting Chris K Not to be annoying, but is that machine gun still coming along? I'm currently working on a Thompson, and I'll hopefully upload it sometime in the near future. Merry Christmas!
That's a good question, Chris! Gun MOCs have been on the bottom of my building priority list for some time now; I would still like to finish the weapon one day, but this is one of those projects that is probably going to sit on my shelf for a very, very long time before I finish it. (I've been having a lot of fun building in other genres lately!) Good luck on your Thompson; I am looking forward to seeing it! ~Cole

Quoting Chris K Are you still going to finish that machine gun?
Thank you for asking me again! I was actually just working on it last night; I had put all gun projects on the back burner for like a year, but I am hoping to still finish this one. I would be really close to completing it except that I've decided to dramatically alter the project with some special motorized functions. :) ~Cole

Truly a great replica! The blockyness is minimal, and the curve in the blade has been pulled off smoothly.

As usual, stellar job. I've seen your other life size weapons, and while they are amazing, this has to be my favorite. The shaping is just fantastic, every detail is just top notch. From afar, like all your weapons, they look just like their counterpart. Brilliant job!
