Ice, Sword of Eddard Stark

By: on February 02, 2012

Though it ultimately couldn't keep Ned Stark's head affixed to his body, the Valyrian steel sword Ice did serve his majesty of Winterfell well. And, should you be one of the lucky keepers of the North to grasp the formidable hilt of this official replica from George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, it will do the same for you. Ice is an authentic, exclusively licensed piece in the Valyrian Steel Collection. Its meticulous detailing and flourishes, including a Valyrian patterned stainless steel blade, cast metal hilt with distressed suede wrap, and 24K gold-plated grip ring, were lifted straight from Martin's 9,785-word descriptions, and autographed by the man himself. Only 2,000 pieces have been fabricated, and each is laser inscribed with its limited edition number, plus comes with a silk-screened fiber board and mounting hardware. Ice is 55 inches long--that's taller than most Asian girls, for frame of reference--and cannot be shipped to Greece, Portugal, Mexico, or Japan because it is a real weapon, and the histories of those countries are such that their peoples might actually know how to wield it. Orders are shipped within 48 hours, so purchase today, and the sword of the Hand of the King could still be in your hands before winter gets here.

If you have 13 minutes and 59 seconds to spare watching a geek open a box, check out the full-length Ice unveiling video. If you don't, but want to see how the thing looks in real life, jump to 4:15.
