The first sword is an Uruk Hai scimitar

The axe is Gimli's axe

The dual knives are Legolas' daggers

The first longsword is Anduril

The blue-gripped longsword is Glamdring

The one next to it I'm not sure of. Looks a bit lightsaber-y hilt-wise though. Maybe a custom creation?

The pair of katanas are just generic, as far as I can tell.

Resident sword expert, apparently.

I mean the majority of them are from one of the most well-known fantasy movie franchises in the world :P I had to look up the axe, though. Since initially Gimli used something called a bearded axe, only obtaining the battleaxe during the delve into Moria.

 

Also worth noting he never used a battleaxe in the books; his axe had a single blade, and was most likely the bearded axe he used in the first movie. The battleaxe shown here was actually Balin's, which Gimli took up (read: stole).

I believe that is Blade's sword. Vampire movie with Wesley Snipes. Could be wrong though.


First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me-- and there was no one left to speak for me.

Wrong, that's one of the ones I checked out first. The Daywalker blade is straight and has no hollowed-out parts, as well as having a grip with a bunch of silver rings breaking up the black. It also has a double-edged point, whereas the one posted is a single-edge blade.

 

My best guess would be something Star Wars-esque, or at least sci-fi in general based on the grip. I thought it might be from Serenity, but the grip on the Operative's Sword is a bit different too.

Looks very steampunkish. Maybe Into the Badlands?

Late reply but those last two are Ko-Wakizashis, which are shorter katanas worn at the hip, behind the back, with the "Ko-" annotation meaning that they're shorter than an average wakizashi, being closer in size to a Tanto. Wakizashis were often worn with a katana to distinguish the wearer as a samurai.

 

When worn together, a katana and wakizashi are known as Daisho, literal translation is "Big-Little"
