We’ve been posting updates in a variety of places such as Facebook, or in comments to older posts here as people ask questions, but it has been awhile since we’ve done an actual update post. So, here it is.
Ice will start shipping by the end of July, barring tsunamis, earthquakes, and union strikes in the shipping industry.
The remainder of the Damascus Longclaws will go out at the same time.
For all customers who have ordered these products, if you’ve moved since you placed your order, please make sure we have your correct address.
We continue to work on King Robert’s Warhammer. We don’t know when preordering will open on this item. Maybe August.
After the warhammer, we don’t know what we will make. Items being considered include Oathkeeper, Tyrion’s dagger, Khal Drogo’s Arakh, and/or a Night’s Watch “dragonglass” obsidian dagger.
We’re also investigating the production of a Damascus Ice. GRRM has not signed off on this yet though, and if we do make it, it will likely not be out until 2013 (if our experience with the Damascus Longclaw is any guide). It will probably cost $700 assuming there is no major inflation or currency upheavals in the next two years, which could change things. But again, not confirmed yet.
