    Found in the troll-cave with Glamdring and Orcrist, Sting was probably forged in Gondolin for the Goblin-wars. It was taken from the cave by Bilbo, and was passed on to Frodo before the Fellowship started from Rivendell.
    Sting glows with a pale light in the presence of goblins and cuts with an unnatural sharpness, as shown in its ability to slice through the webs of Shelob.
