"I just received my Catspaw Blade today. It is absolutely beautiful! The workmanship is fantastic and the balance is perfect. It is even nicer than I had expected. You guys are to be congratulated on your products. Thanks!"
"The blade on this piece is absolutely fantastic. Before it arrived I was skeptical about how well the valyrian pattern would show up, but boy does this blade not disappoint! As soon as I opened the box on dagger #0006, the folded steel pattern was easily visible, and it looks just like the pictures. I am a little disappointed in the handle though. It also looks just like the pictures which, unfortunately, means that it looks a bit like a plastic 'fake' to me. The overall design and production of the dagger (blade, handle shape, handle color, weight balance, etc.) are all fantastic. I just wish the "dragon bone" material of the handle looked more real... to be fair to Valyrian Steel, I have no idea how you would do this without making it crazy expensive. Overall, great work as always VS!"
"Just opened my catspaw blade #0075. The blade part is wonderful, but like Dan A., the plastic look of the handle was a bit disappointing. Actual bone/horn even of just deer could have been used I believe for the price, but an overall nice piece. My only other gripe is "China" stamped into the handle, not sure if it was necessary. Still though, no regrets :) VS Response: Would have been impossible to use real horn or bone. The prop used real african antelope horn, but since antelopes aren't kind enough to grow identical horns, it wouldn't have been possible to mass produce identical handle parts which means every last component would need to be hand made for each individual knife. Plus, it may have become illegal to import to some countries by using a real animal part."
