We’re moving our warehouse from Michigan to Chattanooga, Tennessee, this will affect order shipping times for orders placed the 15th-22nd of July. Our new location will have a nice proper showroom should any customer want to visit in person, way better than our current warehouse.

While cleaning and packing we found the Night’s Watch Dragonglass Dagger Set Prototype! One of a kind, this is the exact knife we sent to GRRM for his personal handling and approval. We put it up on ebay. Bid early and often!

Oathkeeper Damascus should ship in early to mid September.

Robb’s Sword recently sold out, sorry, you can still find it elsewhere, but our warehouse is empty of Robb’s. King Robert’s Warhammer is almost sold out, we have like 10 left, and those will be gone in a day or two.

We are pleased to announce the newest product in our line of licensed collectibles from the HBO® series Game of Thrones®. Needle Sword of Arya Stark is made from stainless steel with antique brass handle parts. It was modeled directly on the actual screen used prop from the show, with accurately matched finishes and dimensions. It will come with a certificate of authenticity and wall mount. Needle will retail for an MSRP of $190, we will start accepting preorders, on Saturday June 6th at 12:00 Noon Eastern US Time, for late Summer 2015 deliveries.

Khal Drogo’s Arakh will start shipping next week. If you’ve moved or otherwise need to change your shipping address. Please EMAIL us. Simply changing your address on our website will not fix old orders (only future ones), existing orders need to be manually updated. Also you may start getting shipping confirmations this weekend, we’re just preprinting labels. No swords are likely to actually go out until Monday or Tuesday. Also, we’re unlikely to get through all the preorders in a timely fashion because we’re closed half of next week for Motor City Comic Con, but we’ll do our best.

We have placed a holdback show edition Damascus Longclaw on eBay, you may bid here.

Oathkeeper and Jaime’s Sword are now shipping to customers. We expect the Khal Drogo Arakh to start shipping in the coming weeks. Also in the coming weeks Needle preorders will open. Later in June or July Oathkeeper Damascus will start shipping, along with with the Lannister Shield, and preorders will open for the Oathkeeper Scabbard.

Robb’s Sword is almost completely sold out, we’re approaching finger counting range on it. Once it is gone we will not be making more.

King Robert’s Warhammer will be next after Robb’s, we have enough to last a couple months, maybe…it depends on what sort of last minute sales spurt we get, it could be sooner.

We are pleased to announce the newest product in our line of licensed collectibles from the HBO® series Game of Thrones®. The Lannister Shield is made from resin and fiberglass with an embossed Lannister sigil. It was modeled directly on the actual screen used prop from the show, with accurately matched finishes and dimensions. It will come with a certificate of authenticity and wall mount. The Lannister Shield will retail for an MSRP of $250, we will start accepting preorders, on Saturday April 18th, for early Summer 2015 deliveries.

We plan to be shipping out Oathkeeper (stainless) and Jaime Lannister’s Sword soon. As in next week. So if you’ve moved or otherwise changed address since you ordered please email or phone us to let us know. Do not merely update your address on your account on our website, those changes aren’t retroactive on old orders, old orders need to be manually updated by us. Thank you. For those wondering, Damascus Oathkeeper & Arakh should ship in May, preorders for Needle and Lannister Shield should be in April.

This past weekend we exhibited at Indiana Comic Con and met up with both Rory McCann and Jason Momoa. Rory posed with both Ice and his helm (and yes, it fits). Jason signed our prototype arakh for us, so now it is both a prototype, and autographed, nice huh?

On completely unrelated news. Jaime’s sword and stainless Oathkeeper are still scheduled to ship the last week of March (possibly 1st week of April at the latest) and Ice Damascus is almost sold out, I think we’re down to single digits.

We also took pictures of all our GOT/ASOIAF cosplayers, check them out here.

We’ve donated some products to Worldbuilders again this year. Two of particular note.

You can view all their auctions here. But the two most of you will be interested in are here:

Ice Damascus Artist Proof

Longclaw Damascus Artist Proof

So, every time we make a product, we also need to make some for HBO to give to VIPs. GRRM gets at least one of everything, and while HBO doesn’t share their VIP list with us, I can only imagine that the showrunners, maybe the president of the network, directors, costume designers, and actors get these. In these cases, we made 18 extra of each damascus sword, but HBO didn’t need all 18, and they kindly let us sell or otherwise dispose of the extra. We previously auctioned a set of the two swords above and together they went for around $3500 as I recall, this time we’ve donated a set to Worldbuilders, but they’ve chosen to auction them separately.

So, what you have, is essentially an edition of 18, where most of those 18 are going to VIPs, making these highly collectible.

So bid like you’re voting in Chicago, early and often. Worldbuilders is a great charity, sort of a meta charity, because what they do is raise money for another charity, Heifer International, which is a great “teach a man to fish” sort of charity. Where rather than doing things like providing food aid to poor subsistence farmers in developing countries, they instead provide livestock and education so that the family can learn to use their livestock to provide for themselves, and the first baby their livestock has is given back to Heifer to give to a new family making it a bit viral. It is almost like a grant to a poor subsistence farmer to increase his production so in the future he will not need grants, the best form of charity, it helps people help themselves.

PS: My understanding is eBay isn’t giving kind international shipping quotes for these auctions. If you’re international and interested in bidding contacting them for an exact quote might be worthwhile. I wouldn’t trust the ebay shipping quotes, they’re much higher than they need to be.
