Runes on orcrist in Khuzdul? Can't Post

Why are the runes on orcrist written in Khuzdul? Should them not be written in Quenya or sindarin since the blade was made by elves?

"But a small dark figure that none had observed sprang out of the shadows and gave a hoarse shout: 'Baruk Khazd! Khazd ai-mnu!' An axe swung and swept back. Two Orcs fell headless. The rest fled."
