This was probably one of the biggest moments of my entire life. I went to listen to Peter Lyon’s talk during the Medieval festival week in Visby. He talked about his swordmaking, the process of making props for films, medieval reenactment, LOTR and all sorts of stuff - which was in itself totally awesome. But then I got to hold Sting. The actual, real hero’s sword who Elijah carried in LOTR (I nearly fainted from happiness). Peter Lyon himself is standing on my right, holding King Peter’s Sword from The lion, the witch and the wardrobe, and his wife Helen is standing on my left, holding Aragorn’s (first) sword.
