Turin the Black Sword

Once known as Anglachel, Turin reforged the sword and renamed it Gurthang, ‘Iron of Death’. It was used by Túrin to slay the Easterling chief Brodda and it remained with him when he came to Brethil but wishing to be rid of his past he put Gurthang away. Only when orcs started to threaten Brethil in numbers did Túrin once again take up Gurthang to repulse them.
Turin also wore the Dragon-helm of Dor-lomin, and was feared by the orcs above all others.
