Wounds inflicted by evil blades

The weapons of Sauron's greatest servants - or, at least, of the Nazgûl - carried dark enchantments that cursed the wounds they inflicted. The wounds themselves varied; that suffered by Steward Boromir left him in crippling pain and shortened his life, while the wound taken by Frodo on Weathertop threatened to make him a wraith.
