Pippin tried not to flinch as Aragorn tossed the sword at him. He pulled it out an inch, enough to glance at the blade and see whether he
would shrink away or not. He was relieved to discover that he didn’t.
But, at the same time he realized that there was no shine to the blade. No sparkle. It was dull and old and not sharp, not dangerous at all. He could imagine himself pulling out this sword and waving it around at a frightening enemy who laughed at him and the ineffective weapon.
At least Merry’s wasn’t any sharper.
