Swords and Daggers and Helms, Oh My

The blacksmiths over at Valryian Steel have been hammering away, and are about to roll out three news GAME OF THRONES products that I thought some of you might like to know about.

((These are all tie-ins from the television series, produced under Jalic's license from HBO, and not tie-ins to the novels, produced under Jalic's license from me, which is why some of them -- the dagger, especially -- look nothing like the item as described in the books)).

First, we have the longsword of Robb Stark, King in the North:

Next, the Catspaw Blade, used by the man sent to kill Bran in his bed:

The last, but decidedly not least, the helm of Sandor Clegane:

All the items are available for pre-order.

And don't worry, Valyrian Steel is still at work on replicas of the weapons from the books as well. Brienne's sword Oathkeeper should be next, if we can figure out how to do the black/red patterning. After that, maybe Khal Drogo's arakh.

Keep your swords sharp!

Pretty dagger, but it looks a little unbalanced, egads. Didn't the one in the book have four jewels?

The one in the book had no jewels. It was very plain. That was why it was chosen. Of course, that plainess was deceptive, since the blade was Valyrian steel and the hilt dragonbone, both rare and costly.

David and Dan went a different way on the show, obviously.

For some reason, I just vividly remembered that scene from The Last Crusade wherein Julian Glover mistakenly accepts and drinks from the most ornate 'grail.' He chose poorly. Can't wait to see the next line of book adaptations.

Wow, I sure blew that one, criminey. No idea where I got the idea of four gemstones, other than maybe I'm holding out for Rhaegar's suit of armor, or at least his chest piece, with the rubies that went all over the Trident. And speaking of R, can't wait for more about the tourney at Harrenhal in the year of the false spring.
