Eket

A Númenórean weapon

A short sword carried by the Númenóreans and their descendants in Middle-earth, used as a stabbing weapon in close combat. It is described as being some one to one-and-a-half feet in length (approximately 30-45 cm), with a sharp tip and a broad, double-edged blade. The name comes from the root-word ekte-, often used in relation to sharp stabbing weapons and objects.
