Last Chance for Longclaw

sword
Just got a note from Chris Beasley at Valyrian Steel.

He writes, "Just wanted to let you know that Longclaw is almost permanently sold out. I do not expect it to last through the month of June."

So if perchance you're one of the folks who has been saving your dimes and nickles to pick up one of the Longclaw replicas, act now, or you may soon be out of luck. These swords are limited editions, so once they are gone, they are gone. Valyrian Steel will not be making any more.



(I should add that Valyrian Steel has obtained a license from HBO to produce replicas of the weapons seen on the TV series, so they will be producing a "show Longclaw" at some point down the line. I don't believe that one will be a limited run. This post relates only to their current version of Jon Snow's blade, produced under a direct license from me -- the "book Longclaw," that is. That's the one that is almost sold out).

To order, head over to the Valyrian Steel website at

Canon
Hi Mr Martin.

I was just wondering, are these replicas which are sanctioned by you Canon, as in This is how they looked in the books?

Re: Canon
The canonization of a longsword would require at least an ex cathedra statement made in a conclave of editors ;-).

Seriously, those knifes come with papers signed by George R. R. Martin himself.

Beautiful, beautiful sword -- had I the means, I'd collect every last piece from Valyrian Steel. Alas, I don't -- and if I can only get one of the many wonderful things they offer, it's going to be Robert's hammer.

the Master of all bastards
A bastardrpiece of a sword that rhymes with sold… :)
And the wolf on the hilt lookedin a full face slightly resembles cat. (Which is a tiny hint for Jon's mother in law I believe.)

I wish they could ship to Greece. Just doesn't make sense to me that customs doesn't allow decorative swords.

Thank you for the heads up!
I was going to ask for one for a Christmas present this year but when I pointed out this entry to my wife, she decided I must have it as a birthday (July) present instead. And rather than risk it, she ordered it last night. Huzzah! Having a nerd-wife is AWESOME!
