Rostron is correct [In reply to] Can't Post

The Galadhrim are a mix of Avari, Sindar and Noldor. After Eregion fell the Noldor left to Rivendell, the Havens or Lothlorien. The few Noldor among the Galadhrim must still forge weapons and armor because we see the unique uniform armor worn by Haldir and his men. It seems hard to imagine a forge in the trees but I suppose it's possible as long as the fire doesn't catch the trunks.

In the Fellowship EE, Galadriel gives Merry and Pippin Noldorin daggers probably from Eregion. All of the swords used by the Galadhrim look like the standard second age design called great elven warrior sword. However my Arms and Warfare of ME book says that the forges of Rivendell made most of the armor and weapons for the Last Alliance which seems almost impossible given the number of elven kingdoms that joined.
