Hadafang, the Throng-Cleaver, belonged to film Arwen during the War of the Ring.

It was said to once have belonged to Idril, an Elven Princess of Gondolin, who wed a human and bore Eärendil, the father of Elrond. Before Arwen was born, Elrond was said to use Hadhafang at the end of the second age of Middle-Earth, during the Last Alliance of Elves and Men in the battle against Sauron. Later, Arwen used Hadhafang when she aided Frodo in his escape from the Ringwraiths.

Inscribed on the blade are runes in Sindarin that say, “aen estar Hadhafang i chathol hen, thand arod dan i thang an i arwen.” Which translates to, “this blade is called Hadhafang, a noble defense against the enemy throng for a noble lady.”
