The Dagger of Wormtongue (Brad Dourif) from the Extended edition of Peter Jackson's Academy Award®-winning fantasy sequel The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. In an unused scene from the theatrical release, Grima Wormtongue concealed a dagger enchanted with magic by his master Saruman the White (Christopher Lee) in his filthy robes. When Saruman scorned him for protecting Theoden (Bernard Hill), Wormtongue fatally stabbed the wizard with his dagger, ending Saruman's reign of terror in Middle-Earth.
