Needle shipped to domestic customers today, you should start receiving it next week. We’ll be emailing tracking numbers out by the weekend.
International orders should go out the second week of January.
Be sure to write a review once you get it.
Happy new year, and stick them with the pointy end.
Thanks for the update
I’ve received Needle today, and the blade is gorgeous. Mikken’s (sp) mark is skillfully done. Great job! Can’t wait for ICE.
Oh my goodness, I just opened the box. It’s gorgeous, of course!! Thanks so much!
Just got mine. Its a little forward heavy, but its an absolutely beautiful sword. Is there someplace where I can get a scabbard for it, or will Valyrian Steel be making custom scabbards one day? If so, I’d buy one.
Just got mine. Great job again. Can’t wait to order Ice.
Don’t forget to write reviews on the product page.
As for scabbards, we’d love to, but there needs to be sufficient demand, right now there isn’t. But maybe after the ADWD comes out or the HBO series airs…
I know that you guys posted a suggestion for a scabbard for Longclaw…. any recommendations for one for Needle?
And yup, reviewed already, just waiting for it to be posted!
The sword is great! Just trying to figure out what is with my 2272 of 2500 edition number.
I just wanted to let people know how great this company is. I have not gotten my sword yet, so I called in 30min before they open for calls expecting to leave a voice mail. “Chris” answered, and then he quickly tracked down my tracking information. I looked it up and I found out needle should be at my doorstep today.
Any word on when international orders will be shipped?
We hope in a week.
I just received my Needle. Beautiful sword! Suits my 9 and 12 year-olds nicely However, I noticed a minor mistake.. It says “A Song of Fire and Ice” on the blade (it should be “A Song of Ice and Fire”).. The certificate of authenticity has it correct though. Anybody else’s sword have it wrong on the blade?
Will overseas customers get an e-mail of sort when their order is shipped? I’d love to know when it leaves your door!
And oh lord Jake… it is amazing the things we miss. GRRM had a few prototypes to review, and a written example of the engravings. I of course did, others here, the design team. None of us saw that.
D’oh! I was kind of hoping mine was the only one.. special..
FYI I got a shipping notification today. I’m an APO address so not sure if that counts as overseas shipping on paper or not, but mines on the way
I’m from the Netherlands and ordered the sword January the 16th, did not yet get a shipping notification.
Just for other people who might be waiting, we just have to be patient for a bit longer, but it’ll come :).
For other international buyer: Mine still stuck in Customs (Belgium) since January 29th. can’t wait.
Same here, it’s been stuck in Customs (Netherlands) since February 1st. Still being patient, but it’s pretty annoying all the same.
Is there any chance anyone at Valyrian Steel knows why it’s taking such a long time at foreign customs for the sword to come through? Something with paperwork or anything, maybe?
Thanks in advance.
A final update:
I’ve got my sword today, number 0087, and it is absolutely stunning.
Hope you get yours soon :-).
