When the Company set out from Rivendell, Aragorn is described as having "Anduril but no other weapon..." (Anduril is the new name of the re-forged Narsil.)
But I can't find any reference to any other weapon he might have carried in the pre-Fellowship days. Yet it's hard to imagine him armed only with a stumpy little sword-fragment!
From this, I would think he carried with him and used them, but I'm not sure what good a broken sword would do.and here also are the shards of Narsil. With these you may yet do great deeds. .
