You didn't really think this weapon was just for orcs, did you?
If necessity is the mother of invention, then the Uruk-hai scimitar did not come into the world for the sole purpose of wreaking havoc.
In fact, we've discovered a young lady who picked up an Uruk-hai scimitar of her own. We have no idea what she was originally planning to do with it -- put it up on the wall, take vengeance on the neighbor's dog who won't stop barking, scare some hobbits? Whatever she originally had in mind, she discovered quickly that this sword is full of practical purposes.
And with that, please enjoy this hilarious gallery of uses for the Uruk-hai scimitar -- it's not just for killing folks any more.
