The dragon tooth grip of Orcrist [In reply to] Can't Post

So what do you think about Orcrist's grip now that you've seen it in person? I'm not even talking about how this fits in with Tolkien's works or not, but in terms of appearance, does it make the sword seem any less attractive?

Putting aside all the arguments for or against the use of a dragon tooth, what I can't get over is how in the real world most animal teeth, unless they've been petrified, become brittle and prone to fracture over time, and it makes me think this would make a very weak grip. But maybe dragon teeth have special properties that make them strong as mithril for eternity (sure, why not). Unsure
