Description
Sword of the Halflings
The Tamrid Tamrim
3D model and textures by Switch Designs
Real sword that inspired the 3d model by Andy Davis

'Farewell we call to hearth and hall!
Though wind may blow and rain may fall,
We must away ere break of day
Far over wood and mountain tall'
J.R.R. Tolkien

The Real Sword:
Forged by Andy Davis, this sword was inspired by Tolkien's descriptions of the culture of 'Halflings' or 'Hobbits'. Most believe he created this race of creatures in his stories to encapsulate and reflect the wild spirit and innocence of his early childhood life in the rural English countryside of Sarehole south of Birmingham. There young Tolkien and his brother experienced the joy and wonder of nature, while at the same time seeing the dark foreboding cloud of industrialization swallow it up. Thus the Hobbits in his stories while being quite and peace-loving are also brave and courageous in the face of insurmountable evil.

This sword is small but fierce, aged but keen, and was made to stand up to everything from strongest spider to the toughest hill troll.
