ICE Now Shipping

Cool news from Valyrian Steel. Their full-sized steel replica of Ice is now ready and shipping.

Mine turned up a few days ago. If you preordered, you should have yours as well.

And if not, well, there's still time to arm yourself for the invasion of the Others and/or the zombie apocolypse, whichever comes first.

Order from Valyrian Steel at http://www.valyriansteel.com/shop/swords/ice-sword-of-eddard-stark/prod_9.html



(I should note, for those who came in late, that the Valyrian Steel replica is derived from the blade in the books, and is NOT modeled on the version seen in the HBO television show. HBO preferred to make its own versions).

Replicas of Longclaw and Needle remain available as well, while the supply lasts.

On a semi-related note, is there any chance we will see the various swords that are made out of valyrian steel in the show actually look like it? i.e. Damascus steel or faux-Damascus steel?

Is this a tacit confirmation that Valyrian Steel = Dragonsteel?
Just curious as to how a sword, even Ice (my favorite of them all), might protect me from the others.

Also, the company that makes these swords did make a Damascus Longclaw, but I believe it sold out (they had 10 left as of April 25th).

Next up is Robert's Warhammer. Were I richer, I'd be up to speed. As it is, I can only gaze on these swords with a mixture of awe and envy.

I love the pattern on the blade. It reminds me of the hada in a shinken blade.

Those are beautiful swords! I just wish I had the extra cash to buy one. I'd love to see Ice or Longclaw hanging on my wall. :)

I hope I can land a better paying job in time to snag a Needle.

Whatever happened with the Robert's Hammer replica? Still not big enough?

Size
Hi George,

This sword is absolutely stunning, I love the hilt the most (I wonder if that survived Tywin Lannister)

Just a question on size, the replica is listed as 55", I recently went to Bamburgh castle (UK, North of Newcastle, if you ever get the chance it is an amazing castle, I was wondering when I was there which of the asoiaf castles it would be), in their armoury they have some HUGE swords, things that were easily 2 meters, in your mind is Ice a lot bigger?

Tom

P.S. I hope we see Dark Sister at some point in the future ;-)
