-Sword of Éomer. Éomer wielded Gúthwinë throughout the War of the Ring.
Éomer had been imprisoned on the authority of Gríma Wormtongue, and when he was released he asked Hama to bring Guthwine to him. Eomer offered his sword to Theoden, and when the King grasped the hilt it seemed as though firmness and strength returned to him.
Éomer and Aragorn drew their swords together at the Battle of Helm's Deep and fought to defend the gates of the Hornburg.
The swords flashed from the sheath as one.
"Gúthwinë!" cried Éomer. "Gúthwinë for the Mark!"
"Andúril!" cried Aragorn. "Andúril for the Dunédain!"
The Two Towers: "Helm's Deep," p. 139
At the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, when others despaired at the approach of the black-sailed ships of the Corsairs, Éomer raised Gúthwinë to defy them. But then he laughed and threw his sword into the air and sang as he caught it, for the standard of Aragorn was revealed on the foremost ship. The two friends met in the middle of the battlefield and leaned on their swords and were glad.
