Best Answer

Thorin's sword, acquired from the troll cave was Orcrist, the Goblin-Cleaver, called by the Goblins/Orcs Biter. Gandalf's sword was Glamdring, Foe-hammer, called by the Orcs Beater. Bilbo named his large knife Sting.
They are Orchrist and Glamdring. Thorin had the first one and Gandalf the second. The goblins call them Beater and Biter. Bilbo discovers that his dagger is also magical when it glows in the presence of the goblins.
