In the 3rd Chapter of The Hobbit 'A Short Rest', Gandalf and Thorin show their swords to Elrond at Rivendell. He tells them they were made by the High Elves of the West.

In Riddles in the Dark, Bilbo pulls out his sword and it glows in the dark. He thought it rather splendid to be wearing a sword that glowed the way Gandalf and Thorin's swords did. Bilbo's little sword, which he later gives the name 'Sting', is of the same design and has the same magic.

He knew that Elrond had said they would glow when around goblins or orcs. Sting started to shine when he got close to the goblins, so he knew it was made by the same magic.

Bilbo knows his sword was made by the Elves because Gandalf told him when he found it in the cave. Gandalf gave it to the Hobbit in case he ever needed to defend himself on his own.



When a sword has a name it is because it belonged to a hero, so when Bilbo named his sword he thought of himself as a hero and that's a step for Bilbo and very important to know when your writing a paper on the book.


elves know a lot, know about what is going on among the people of the land, know the land well, and learn what is going on quick as the water flows. pg. 50 in the 1997 edition of The Hobbit.


Gandalf tells him when they find the weapons in the troll's cave. It is confirmed when he sees it glowing in the cave when near goblins.When he is lost inside the mountain, he discovers that it glows in the presence of goblins the same way that Gandalf's and Thorin's swords do.He knows because of the elvish glow of the blade like all blades that are made by the elves.


We don't know for sure. It was a large knife for a man, but a sword for Bilbo. It was probably 10 to 12 inches long.


Elves are NOT real. They are from stories.


Answerthe elves that we know are actually fake. real elves are known as biakaputookas.


The Lord Of The Rings has elves in it and I do think that The Hobbit has elves. That's all the books I know that have elves but there is probably more


Many people knew that the One Ring existed, but they didn't know that Bilbo had it, except for Gollum. Gandalf suspected that Bilbo had the ring, but he wasn't sure.


How do we know that Bilbo was well guided and well guarded on his way home


Yes they are.I don't know the elves' names but I know some of the reindeer :Donner Vixen Rudolph... that's it.


We know Bilbo, the hobbit, was well guided and well guarded on his way home because Gandalf, the wizard, accompanied Bilbo all the way home to his hobbit-hole, while Beorn, the shape-shifter, accompanied him just until they approached his house in Mirkwood. Also because Beorn gives very good advice about Mirkwood.


Hey dumbo you took away my other message dont you know that elves arent real!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The elves were astonished because they did not know the dwarves were in the barrels that they threw.


Bilbo Baggins knew that his dagger, Sting, was made by the elves by several reasons: 1. It was found with two other swords, which Gandalf and Thorin took, and these had elvish runes on them. 2. Gandalf was wise and learned in this kind of thing and he recognized them. 3. When they brought them to Rivendell, Elrond recognized their make and could read the runes. He told them that they were very old swords of the High Elves of the West, made for Gondolin in the Goblin-wars. Thorin's was Orcrist, or Goblin-cleaver in the ancient tongue of Gondolin, and Gandalf's was Glamdring, or Foe-hammer. Bilbo's dagger was just that, a dagger, but plenty big enough for a hobbit.


I don't know i guess you'd have a sword.


Bilbo found The One Ring (although he did not know it was so at the time, he only figured it was magical) and it became quite convenient to him. By slipping his Ring onto his finger, he was able to sneak away from Gollum, get out of the Goblin's caves, free the dwarves from vicious spiders who had caught them in their webs, and aid his dwarven friends in escaping from the wood-elves' castle.


Santa has thousands of elves. It would be nearly impossible to list all of Santa's elves' names. Though, we do know that two elves' names are Jingle and Jangle, but there are many more out there.


If you are referring to the book "The Hobbit," we aren't told exactly. We do know that elves and dwarves had a long-standing grudge against each other. But it does seem as if the elves were trying to trap them, or at least to create an excuse for taking them prisoner. The elves in "The Hobbit" were more like the elves in Celtic folklore - silly, tricky, deceitful little fairies - than the regal, mysterious elves in "The Lord of the Rings." Legolas was a Mirkwood elf, one of the people that the dwarves encountered in "The Hobbit," and was not considered the equal of the Lorien elves.


He knows Bilbo has 'a' magic ring, though he is not sure of its nature just yet; it is a suspicion he needed to confirm.


We don't know for sure, It's what YOU beleive that counts.



"Yes" elves are real, and some aren't. But you better watch elves can be a little maybe a lot messy. Did you know elves come alive at night? They do and there trying to find all the things you have and go to the North Pole and tell Santa what not to make. If elves weren't real how would children get presents? How would he buy them? elves are real but santa is not the reason why elf dolls are real is because they have spirits inside them and go to visit santas spirit because santa was real along time ago but died and people thought it would be fun for children to create all this north pole stuff


The elves in "The Hobbit" did not know how the dwarves could have travelled there. They thought the barrels were all empty.
