Though Faramir is skilled with his sword it is true that he is much better at handling his bow, his sword skill is greately surpassed by his brother Boromir and the King of the Reunited Kingdom and Dúnedain Ranger, Aragorn.
The sword itself has a short, dark green handle and a long, polished, blade that has slain many Orcs.
Faramir has used it in many battles but only one in the War of the Ring, this one being the Battle of Osgiliath, but he has also used it in many ambushes of Sauron's forces who have been travelling through Ithilien to the Black Gate.
Appearances in AdaptionsEdit
Lord of the Rings Battle for Middle EarthEdit
Faramir is a hero in The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II and can switch between his bow and his sword as one of his abilities. His sword does more damage and has another ability which boosts its power but his bow is ranged and his trademark ability- wounding arrow,(this is based on the arrow he shoots at the Nazgûl while at Osgiliath when trying to save Frodo) can only be used with the bow.
