Ice will be leaving our facilities and going out to customers starting Wednesday. At that point it won’t quite be “in stock” because we’ll be playing catch up for a week or so and moving the bulk of them (that are left), to our Michigan warehouse from our LA warehouse. But, by the second week of August it should be to the point where any new orders would ship within 24 hours. Thank you everyone for your patience, especially those of you who ordered way back last October.

On the Damascus Longclaw, we have some final prep to do so we have to wait until they’re trucked here to Michigan, so those won’t go out for another week to 10 days or so.

    Awesome to hear you have a warehouse in michigan. I live in the murder mitten myself. Is there any chance of being able to pick up a sword from the warehouse directly?

    Unfortunate. Any updates on the lannister oathkeeper?

    Hi Valrian,

    did you send out all the shipping notices for ice yet? i ordered but haven’t gotten my notice yet?


  7. Dave on July 25, 2011 at 5:06 am said:


    I was wondering the same thing. I haven’t received a shipping notice yet either. Any word on those?


  8. Not everyone will get one in advance, don’t worry.

    Works for me, thanks.

    I got a shipping notification on 20th july but since than the usps status is still “Electronic Shipping Info Received”. Is there something wrong with the usps site or hasn’t it been shipped yet? :)


  11. As the post says, it should start shipping today. Hopefully all swords will ship today and we’ll get a notification later.

    Just ordered Ice, I’m greatly looking forward to it. Quick question for you guys at Valyrian. The leather scabbard from that fits Longclaw, would that also work for Ice? Also I remember you guys once mentioning the possibility of scabbards to go with the swords. Any chance of seeing those anytime soon? Thanks and keep up the good work!

  13. So excited. Very Interested in Roberts Hammer as well. When do you anticipate pre order?

  14. Still no new notification from USPS… Any chance to ship out today? I’m getting a bit obsessive these days.

  15. Russ on July 29, 2011 at 6:37 am said:

    I’ve been praying to the old gods in my weirwood for ice …

  16. When do you think all the ice will be shipped?

  17. Nathaniel on August 1, 2011 at 10:08 am said:

    Um. Russ… All the Ice swords can’t possibly be shipped until they sell them all. It seems like kind of a silly question considering that they are probably getting new orders fairly frequently.

  18. He meant the preordered ones. Mine is still stuck at “electronic shipping info received”. I was hoping to hold it next week but it seems I’ll have to hold it together a little longer.

  19. Kristina on August 2, 2011 at 1:28 pm said:

    Any idea as to when they will all be shipped out?

  20. iirc last time around I got a shipping notification AFTER I recieved Needle. Just as last time I pre-ordered the same month orders were being taken (this time in October I believe).

    Same as last time, I have yet to recieve an email and my account status shows the whole proccessing bit. So I’m just going to assume mine is on the way as should every one else until you see a posting saying that they’ve shipped out all the pre-orders.

    I’ve just spoke to Chris from Valyrian Steel today and he said that it is very possible that the sword will get to me before I will get a tracking number because they are shipping from the warehouse and the warehouse will send all the info to VS so I guess it’s a complicated process.

  22. Bob R on August 3, 2011 at 9:54 am said:

    Got my Ice yesterday, thanks Val Steel!

    Got a question for you, at the bottom of the CoA there’s what I think is a serial number VS0003. Does that mean I have Ice #3?


  23. See, they are shipping, we’re not lying… Bob is proof! ;)

    No, VS0003 is the item number. VS0001 was Longclaw, VS0002 Needle, VS0003 Ice.

    Your # is not on the CoA, it is lasered onto the blade itself, you can fill it in on the CoA if you desire.

  24. Also, don’t forget to write a review.

  25. Kristina on August 3, 2011 at 11:59 am said:

    Bob, did you have to sign for it? I’m not at home during the day, so I need to figure something out if a signature is required. Thanks! I’m so jealous of you! =P

  26. Kristina I never had to sign for the previous blades… but I also use an APO box so…

  27. Got mine today!!! Sweet!

  28. Nathaniel on August 3, 2011 at 7:34 pm said:

    Both Needle and Longclaw were left at my front door no sig required. I imagine Ice will likely be the same. But I have an enclosed entry into my fourplex so my front door cannot be seen from the street.

  29. Like the others have said, didn’t need to sign for it. I just got my tracking # today. :)
