It is a hand-and-a-half sword, with a black leather-wrapped grip, a scent-topper pommel, and a long, tapering blade. If one looks carefully, the blade was rusted slightly, possibly because it is an old sword that Aragorn often uses and wet with blood.
Portrayal in adaptationsEdit
Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogyEdit
In The Fellowship of the Ring, Aragorn uses it to fight and defeat the nine Ringwraiths. Later at Amon Hen, Frodo and Aragorn discovers Frodo's sword, Sting turns blue, signaling the Orcs had arrived. Then Aragorn asks Frodo to escape so that he and the fellowship distract the Uruk-hai so that Frodo can escape. Aragorn then uses it in the ensuing skirmish. 
In The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, it was finally used in Battle of the Hornburg to defend Rohan, and which it was never seen again, since the Elves had reforged Narsil, the most powerful sword. 
It is unknown what happened to the sword afterwards, it was possibly abandoned by Aragorn.
