Thorin's initial reaction to Orcrist Can't Post

Sorry if this is something that is very obvious to everyone. But I've been wondering about it for a while now and it was only during my 3rd viewing that I noticed this:

In the trolls' cave, once Gandalf said the swords were made by Elves, a very brief look of annoyance crossed Thorin's face and he was about to put it down, but Gandalf said they were very fine blades and Thorin changed his mind.

Can someone please confirm this? I don't know why I didn't notice it before -- maybe because in my mind it should be common knowledge that Elven blades are the greatest blades ever made and everyone should be squealing with joy when they get their hands on them :P

When I finally noticed it, the scene with Elrond in Rivendell makes more sense when Thorin finally 'officially' accepts Orcrist.
