Few “Damascus” Longclaws Remain

According to Valyrian Steel, the supply of the very limited “Damascus” steel version of Longclaw is running low, with only ten left in stock. For some, these are the only “real” examples of Longclaw, using pattern-welding (also known as “damascus”) to create the pattern, rather than paint as with the regular edition of the sword. This is the officially authorized version of the weapon, designed with George R.R. Martin’s direct guidance and approval; the HBO weapons were designed by the production company without GRRM’s direct input, and currently HBO does not have the rights to licensing out replicas of those.
