Bestowal dialogue

Where the blade should meet the hilt there is only a thin space where once a blade fit. This hilt is heavy and cast in very dark iron, wrought not by the hand of dwarves.

Perhaps Garthar at the Deep Descent can help you discover the fell means by which this object was made.


You discovered a black hilt in the belt pouch of an Orc-wraith within the Forgotten Treasury.

Objective 1

Garthar is at the Deep Descent.

Garthar may be able to afford you some level of knowledge about the strange hilt you found.

Garthar: 'What is this you have here? I do not like the feel of this thing.
'No blade, not made by dwarves...not made by Orc either, if my eyes do not deceive me. This blade was crafted within the darkest forges of Middle-earth, I would gather. An Elf may know more, but there is no time for sending you all about the world.
'I would venture that this is one of the blades told of that made the wraiths what they are. If there are others of these blades in Khazad-dûm, you should take great care to steer clear of them, lest you meet a terrible fate.'
