On March 20, 2007, it was announced that a new company had entered the A Song of Ice and Fire licensing universe with plans to produce replica, display-quality weapons based on the books of the series. The head of Valyrian Steel, Chris Beasley, has extensive experience with the making and selling of steel weapons. Not only would they look to replicate the famous Valyrian steel swords, but they’d also look at other notable weapons such as King Robert’s warhammer and Arya’s Needle.
The first weapon planned is a replica of Longclaw, and it—and future weapons, such as the planned replica of Needle—was be produced in limited edition runs of just 2500. The line has proved successful enough to lead to Needle, a deluxe edition of Longclaw, and an in-development Ice.
