The Daggers of Westernesse were four ancient short-swords entombed in the Barrow-downs, in Eriador. Presumably, they were created during the war between Arnor and Angmar, and then buried in the Barrow-downs alongside Men of Arnor who had been killed by the forces of Angmar. During The Fellowship of the Ring, these daggers were given to Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee, Meriadoc Brandybuck and Peregrin Took by Tom Bombadil, after he saves the hobbits from the Barrow-wights. They are borne by the hobbits (except Frodo, who replaces it for Bilbo's Elvish sword 'Sting' at Rivendell) throughout their journeys, and are later used for great deeds. Merry uses one to injure the Witch-king of Angmar (who was affected by the dagger due to its creation to defeat it, during the warring times in Arnor), while Pippin uses his sword to kill a great troll at the Battle of the Black Gate. Sam leaves his sword by Frodo after Shelob's attack, and it is later taken by the orcs of Cirith Ungol, and then to Sauron. The Mouth of Sauron presents this sword, along with one of the hobbits' elven cloaks and Frodo's mithril coat, to Aragorn and Gandalf immediately before the Battle of the Morannon.
