Telchar was one of the greatest smiths in the First Age of Middle-earth. His master and teacher was Gamil Zirak the old. Telchar was commonly regarded amongst the greatest smiths of all times save only Fëanor and Celebrimbor. Among his works were the knife Angrist, the sword Narsil (later reforged as the sword Andúril), and the Dragon-helm of Dor-lómin.
It is unknown exactly when Telchar was alive or anything about any family that he had of his own, but it is know that the Dragon Helm of Dor-lómin was made shortly after the dragon Glaurung first appeared, in the 265th year of the First Age, which gives some clue.
