The Pipe Staff of Gandalf
Estimated ship date: August 2018
Prop Replica by Weta
Weather-beaten and worked by years of faithful service as both walking stick and wand, Gandalf the Grey’s staff was a twisted, sinewy rod whittled from an upturned sapling. Though it bore his initials carved and its stem was worn smooth by long years held in the Wizard’s grip, the wooden weapon did not always belong to him. Once upon a time it had been the staff of Gandalf’s friend Radagast, the Brown Wizard of Rhosgobel, who entrusted it to his Grey colleague’s care in recognition of his greater need: Gandalf having lost his own staff in Dol Guldur.
By the time Gandalf came to Bag End to council Frodo concerning the One Ring, the staff clutched the Wizard’s pipe in a crown of snapped roots where once a crystal had nested, and from its shaft hung a pouch of the Shire-grown pipeweed of which Gandalf had become so fond.
Long had it served Gandalf since given to him by Radagast, but in a strange twist it was another Wizard who would take it away. When Gandalf rode to Isengard seeking the wisdom of the head of his Order, Saruman the White instead betrayed his former friend and imprisoned him, taking the staff to deprive him of its potency.
