Christmas is on a Thursday, most international destinations could received delivery by Christmas even if they order as late as December 21st and choose UPS Express (or Express Saver) shipping. Order by December 17th and choose UPS Expedited shipping. For cheaper regular mail shipping anytime after this Friday and you’re really pushing your luck, though it is possible you can still get it ordering as late as perhaps the 12th, it would not be guaranteed. For domestic US shipments you can order next day air by the morning of the 23rd and have it delivered in time for Christmas. 2nd day air on the 22nd, 3 day select on Friday the 19th. Ordering by the 17th should allow regular ground shipping to reach you anywhere in the US (except Alaska and Hawaii), the closer you are to Michigan the longer you can wait on that ground cutoff.

At long last I can share with you some news on our GRRM A Song of Ice and Fire book license. We have new approved concept art, it took awhile, but here is Oathkeeper.
Again, this was designed working with George R.R. Martin through our book license, it is not a replica of Oathkeeper as see on the HBO show.
George did not want to use paint and the only way we know to do the red and black blade is with a chemical patina on real damascus, so our intention here is to make only a real damascus version of this sword, there will not be a plain steel version. We also intend to include a custom poster featuring artwork the includes the sword, along with the typical GRRM autographed COA.
At this point preorders will not be opening soon, this is just the first step. Expect preorders possibly late Winter 2015, and deliveries around a year from now, assuming we get the prototype in and everyone is happy with it.
We also got approved concept art for Daario’s ladies on the book license, which will be shared with you soon.
In addition to our normal production runs, we sometimes make Artist Proofs for HBO to hand out to VIPs (actors, directors, executives, etc). We made 18 Artist Proofs for both Longclaw & Ice Damascus, HBO ended up not needing all 18, and said we could sell some since Longclaw Damascus was sold out. So. I present to you, a matching set of ultra rare artist proof Damascus Ice and Damascus Longclaw. We have a few such sets to distribute, one we hope to offer as a contest prize, one might be donated to a charity auction, this first set we’re putting on eBay.
At Motor City Comic Con a few weeks back Khal Drogo himself, Jason Momoa, was kind enough to hang out at our booth and try out the merchandise.
We are pleased to announce the newest product in our line of licensed collectibles from the HBO® series Game of Thrones®. The Unsullied Helm is a leather and steel prop replica. It was modeled directly on the actual screen used prop from the show, with accurately matched finishes and dimensions. It is a limited edition of 2500 pcs and will come with a display stand and a certificate of authenticity. The Unsullied Helm will retail for an MSRP of $300, we will start accepting preorders, on Monday May 12th, for late summer 2014 deliveries.
We get questions frequently “Are you going to make more book products?” or “When will you make more book products?” As you may have heard, George R.R. Martin is incredibly busy, and unlike our HBO license where we copy an existing design, when working with GRRM we have to generate new original designs based on what is in his head, and that requires his time, which is in short supply, so the book products necessarily have slowed down, but they have not stopped, nor do we plan for them to stop.
In fact, we just renewed our license with George R.R. Martin through 2026, which is great because it ensures us the opportunity to do replicas from the final books, should any new interesting weapons surface in them, as well as to continue with book items long after the show finishes (though, I know many of us are hoping for spinoffs or feature film prequels). We’re certainly very happy with the renewal, we can’t wait to see what new weapons might surface in the final two books and reproduce them for you. Currently in development on the book license we are working on Oathkeeper, and Daario’s “ladies.”
Longclaw Scabbard, VS0108, will start to ship tommorow. If you’ve moved or changed address since you placed your order, please let us know. If you backordered both the scabbard and the sword in the same order, we will hold off on shipping the scabbard until your sword ships later this month so they can go together.
We are going to start processing shipping labels for Longclaw, Damascus Longclaw, and Damascus Ice soon. You may be emailed a tracking number, that does NOT mean the product has shipped, only that we processed the label. We’re looking at the 1st week of March right now but there are so many labels to get through, we want to start working on them. Also, if you’ve moved and need the address changed, please EMAIL us so that your sword finds you safely.
Everyone has has ordered Longclaw should get it shipped, but we only are getting enough damascus swords to cover a portion of the earliest existing preorders, the rest will be here in May.
