Fantasy Swords - Sting - Bilbo Baggin’s Sword
Sting was an Elvish knife or dagger, used as a sword by the Hobbits in J.R.R. Tolkien’s trilogy, the Lord of the Rings. Made in Gondolin in the First Age, Sting is a magical weapon used by Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit (and later on by his cousin, Frodo Baggins). 
Sting was likely forged by the elves of Gondolin in the First Age. The blade had the magical ability to detect any nearby orcs. When orcs were present, it glows blue. This was a common property of First Age Elf blades, particularly those forged in Gondolin. Sting was exceptionally sharp.
In Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, Sting is depicted as vaguely leaf-shaped, with gentle curving edges. Engraved on the blade and cross-guard are letters in Sindarin that read phonetically, "Maegnas aen estar nin dagnir in yngyl im",  which means "Maegnas is my name, I am the spider’s bane."
