Re: Why was Aragorn carrying the shards of Narsil around?
but it also never says anywhere that he doesn't have another sword. It makes no specific mention of any weapon he carries other than the shards. As a Ranger Aragorn would not have gone about unarmed its that simple. A dagger would be next to useless. He could have had a bow, another sword, heck he could have carried any type of weapon besides the shards. Point is, aragorn would have been a fool to wander without a proper weapon, and a fool he is not.
