THE SWORD/DAGGER OF FRODO WAS MADE BY ELVES. Bilbo gives Sting, a sword made by Elves in the ancient days, to Frodo to serve him on his harrowing journey. Bilbo carried Sting with him when he originally acquired the Ring from Gollum. Sting's blade glows when the Orcs, the violent foot-soldiers of Sauron, are present. HISTORY OF FRODO BAGGINS STING SWORD/DAGGER.
An ancient Elvish blade made by weapon-smiths in Gondolin, Sting may have been lost during the Fall of Gondolin, the same battle in which Turgon fell and Glamdring was taken. By the late Third Age, it came into the possession of three trolls dwelling in eastern Eriador. It was in their cave, in the year TA 2941, that Bilbo and his Dwarven companions found Sting alongside the Elven blades Glamdring and Orcrist. When rescuing Thorin and Company from the giant spiders of Mirkwood, Bilbo was inspired to give the sword its name after cutting himself free from a cocoon and slaying the spider guarding him. Just before his nephew embarked on his quest to Mordor from Rivendell, Bilbo gave Sting to Frodo.
Sam then took the weapon from his (seemingly dead) master and used it to good effect against Shelob on the borders of Mordor. Gollum, who disliked anything made by the Elves, was afraid of Sting. This fear aided Bilbo when he confronted Gollum in the cave at the base of the Misty Mountains in The Hobbit. This also helped Frodo and Sam subdue Gollum decades later, when they encountered him in the Emyn Muil. Orcs also had an instinctive fear of these weapons and hated any who carried them.
