I have enjoyed perusing the forums and been inspired by all of the amazing work that people have posted. I am very indebted to all the hints, tips and suggestions found in these threads. Decided to post simple engravings I put on some gifts I made for my nephews and niece. My Quenya and Sindarin are very rusty but good enough for the under 10 crowd. Each sword has an inscription and (as far as I can tell) the name written in the appropriate font. Andruil may actually be Narsil or some other word.
Swords were made with traditional wood shop tools.
Engraving could be a bit darker. I was having trouble getting consistent results on the pine.
