    This was a dark yew bow, of the same type of material as Beleg's bow, Belthronding.
    Legolas used it in Mirkwood against various sendings of Dol Guldur such as giant spiders and Orcs. It was used in the journey of the Fellowship, killing many Orcs and used against sorcery-sent wolves. It was also used to hunt animals for food and materials.
    This bow was replaced in Lothlorien by Galadriel's gift.
