Dramborleg was the great axe wielded by Tuor during the First Age.[1]

HistoryEdit

During the Fall of Gondolin, Tuor used Dramborleg and clove five Balrogs to death.[1]

After Tuor sailed for the West, the axe was kept by Elros and his descendants, and eventually became a royal heirloom of Númenor. It was lost in the Downfall of Númenor near the end of Second Age.[2]

EtymologyEdit

In the language of the Gondolindrim, Dramborleg means "Thudder-sharp",[2] from daram ("beat, hew") or dram ("heavy stroke").[3]

Its earlier name was Drambor.[4]
