"This Ice sword is awesome, very well put together and pleasing to the eye. Overall an awesome product and well worth the wait."

"Finally got my very own Ice! It was well worth the wait with my only complaint being the outer damage to the box and sleeve; occurring during shipment I assume. The sword itself is beautiful and massive. Very sturdy construction with no loose parts. The blade itself did have a few slight scuffs which should hopefully buff out."

"By far the best sword that I own. Just the shear weight of this thing lets you know when you need to take a deserters head all you have to do is raise it and let it drop no swinging needed. Great Job Valyrian Steel on this sword. I for one am very Happy.
Winter is Coming... and with it comes ICE!"

"Really impressed right off the bat seeing the slide cover with very nice graphics but then I opened the inner box and wow! This is a big blade! Definitely two hands needed to wield it. Great feel and it looks good on my wall. Good job! Winter is here!"

"This is a man's sword. It is massive and you definitely need two hands to swing it. I love the lazer inscription "ICE, Sword of Eddark Stark" Total awesomeness. The best piece I have ever owned. To be balanced in my assessment though, I do have one slight issue with it and that is the top doesn't screw on straight exactly. If you display it, that's fine. But if you are trying to kill white walkers with it, you'd want to screw the top on tight but it won't look straight."

"Nothing new to say in this review...sword was well worth the wait. Massive and visually pleasing to the eye. If you thought about purchasing this sword at some point, do it ASAP...you won\'t be sorry. Great job on this product valyrian steel...and thank you"

"This is a beast of a sword, and you really don't understand just how big it is until you see it in person. Everything is tightly fitted together, and there is surprisingly little wobble when swinging it around. As far as balance goes, it is quite blade heavy, but what else could you expect from so much steel? Its home is on my wall, but it feels sturdy enough that I may take it out once or twice to massacre a few melons or milk jugs. Definitely a worthwhile purchase, and a steal at $300."

Comment: Winter is here..421
"What an amazing sword, my 421. A symbol of duty and honor that l will treasure forever.
The first time I seen this in show, I was hoping for a replica to be made.A fine piece of craftsmanship to add to my collection, worth the wait.

"Oh Wow! This sword was well worth the wait. I can't get over how much it dwarfs my other swords though. Goes great with Robb Stark and Longclaw. You guys should make a bear skin sheath for Ice like in the Pilot episode."

"When I received my sword today the box, firstly, was beautiful! The sheer size and solidity of this was amazing!! Easily the best sword in my collection!! Very happy :) I got number 243 and I'm glad I was able to get one. Holding it you realize it true size. Truly a man's sword!"

"The hilt on this thing gives it so much presence! The steel buffs up to a brilliant shine with some Renaissance Wax. Love the hardwood!
I am very thankful that you fulfilled my wish and gave me No.207 to match my ASOIAF No.207 Damascus Steel Ice.
My only concern is the pommel. It isn't quite straight."

"It's already been stated ad infinitum, but I'll say it again: This sword is a MONSTER! It make my LOTR Anduril sword look like a toothpick. Love the blood grooves too.
It's a gorgeous wall piece, though I'll probably stick to my gladius for playing around. Trying to "fight" (or pretend to fight) with this thing could pull my arm out of its socket. Clearly Eddard is using a different blade in scenes where he's not beheading crow deserters..."

"What a wicked sword! It was a very long wait from when it was originally announced but this sword is brilliant! Such weight to it, it really feels very solid in my hands. It's exactly as advertised in pictures, I couldn't be happier with it. Stoked for my Damascus Longclaw coming in the spring, hopefully not such a long delay for that. Cheer Valyrian Steel."

"I had previously owned the book version of Ice but what I really wanted was the TV version. Well I finally got it and its by far the best item Valyrian has produced thus far. The sword is massive, well put together and the blade is very sturdy. The only thing I wish they did was use the reddish wood on the handle instead of the brown, but this is a small nitpick on my part. I enjoy the TV series replicas more since they are made by a weaponsmith. The author George Martin writes amazing stories but when it comes to creating a functioning sword I think that isn't his trade hence the issues I had with the book version of some of his swords."

"Seriously this sword is massive, the picture doesn't do it any justice. Very solid, especially for how large it is. Very happy with my purchase."

"My wife went to C2E2 and picked me up Ice #990. Most beautiful sword I own to date. I'm also the proud owner of Robb Starks sword #1126. Keep up the great work guys."

"The sword is big, heavy, and beautiful! There's a lot of detail in everything, including the plaque, and all of it feels, looks and is extremely high quality. A must-have for any Stark!"

Comment: OH MY F#@KING GOD!!!
"I just receiveed my Bachelors of Science in Graphic Design and for a graduation present my wife talked to eveyone in our family to they all pitched in and gavew me Ice for a graduation present. When I opened the box all I could say was "Oh my f#@king god!" I was just floored. This sword is the most amazing thing I've ever seen. It's so skillfully made. It is absolutly amazing. It hangs in my studio by my drawing table where I can look at it and be inspired by it. If you are a fan of Game of Thrones this sword is a must have. It's just amazing. Thank you Valyrian Steel for making an amazing sword."

"My and family gave me Ice for a graduation present and all Ihave to say is that this is the most amazing sword I've ever seen. Pictures don't do it justice. When I opened the box my jaw dropped to the floor. It's truely a work of art."

"I've been looking at both the Damascus and carbon versions of this sword and I couldn't decide. I wanted the Damascus but it cost $400 bucks more. I was kicking myself for weeks about picking one. So finally I decided and went with this one, but I was worried about the blade being too shiny. It is not. It may be a little light, but it's perfect. It's big. It feels great and it's huge. the blade is the size of my fist. Whether a present or for yourself, you won't be disappointed."

"Like most people who enjoy eating wings, I always have issues with meat getting stuck in my teeth. Well not anymore, thanks to this baby I can get my teeth clean no problem... Or slay a giant... Whichever situation presents itself first! :)"

"This is a excellent sword very well made and heavy. The plaque is top quality too.
Thank you Valyrian Steel.
And my mum and sisters."

"I ordered this on the 3rd of December for my boyfriend. I live in Canada so I thought I would be waiting awhile for it but it came today(the 11th)! My boyfriend loves it. He was so surprised, definitely earned me extra brownie points :) I didnt have to pay anything extra when it arrived either which was a huge relief. It is so heavy and huge the size alone is impressive. If I didnt know how much it cost I would never guess $300. My only complaint is the wall mount isnt holding up the sword. The holes are too close together but Nate will be able to fix this. If you are thinking about ordering it do it!! I will definitely be ordering more stuff from here"

"All I can say is Wow!!! I received Ice for a Christmas present and I have to say I am truly impressed. The sword was very well packaged and arrived unharmed to South Florida. The blade came coated in oil and wrapped in plastic to protect it against rust. The packaging was re-enforced with small blocks of wood at the sword point and the end of the hilt to ensure that it didn't break through the packaging which is great once you consider the overall size and weight. Construction of the sword itself is flawless. It is well balanced and visually stunning. The plaque is not as well made but the quality of the sword more than makes up for it. I give it 5 silver stags. I would recommend this item to any GOT fan who can afford the $300 price tag."

"Brilliant product, incredibly well put together and weighs a ton. Looks amazing put on the plaque on the wall."

"I just received my ICE Sword of Eddard Stark and the first thing I thought when I opened the box was "this sword is huge". And it is, this blade towers over all others and it is made of great quality. I wished I had purchased it earlier. For those of you who are on the fence on purchasing ICE, I can not recommend it more. It is an outstanding sword and the price is fantastic. I can't wait to hang it up on my wall, it's a fantastic conversation starter. Remember though, the blade is made from high carbon steel so it will corrode if you don't maintain it. Try not to touch it with your fingers as the oils in your hands will also corrode the blade. It's going to be hard to have guests not touch the blade with their bare hands but a little kind reminder never hurts. For those of you who have this sword already, you know what I mean when I say it's an awesome purchase. For those of you who don't have one yet....What are you waiting for! THE NORTH REMEMBERS!"

"My sword was absolutely beautiful! It came in today, and opened it up and hung it up with my Robb stark and long claw sword. I ran into one issue while opening it- a dead moth was in the wrapping. Luckily it was on the outside of the wrapping so it didn\\\'t mess up the blade. Otherwise, awesome sword!"

"Gotta say this sword is none this world. I once cut a goat in half just thinking about this blade. I can guarantee this is 100% valyrian steel. If Gandalf had this blade, it would cut the Ring in half. Also, one reviewer said that you should oil this blade regularly so it does not rust. I myself keep my blade lubricated with the blood of my enemies and some KY GEL.
PS. Spreads butter like no other!"

"I ordered the Ice sword for my husband's Birthday and it arrived after 11 short days. I am so thrilled with the quality of this beast, you've outdone yourselves! My husband LOVES it!!! The only thing I'm a tad nervous about it the plaque. It's lovely but I am afraid it won't hold the weight of the sword. We shall see when we find the perfect spot to hang it. Thank you for your no-nonsense, customer friendly site, Valyrian Steel. I will be ordering from you in the future! Cheers!"

"This is an incredible replica. The sheer size is overwhelming and the detail is incredible. The sword is also very sturdy. I had debated with myself for ages and I'm extremely pleased that I decided to go for it. Thank you very much, valyrian steel."

"Just got my HBO GoT sword and all I can say is daaaaaamn. This thing is huge! Dwarfs all my other swords. Very pleased with it. Only complaint is that in order to get it in the plaque you have to slide it in from the tip. Very minor complaint but makes handling it a bit more work. Very pleased with the piece of art. Please keep coming out with new A Song of Ice and Fire blades!!"

"Well my ICE turned up for my Birthday present and like all the other reviews its HUGE !
It wouldn't take much effort to chop off a limb or head thats for sure !
Very pleased it has excellent craftmanship within the build, I wish the damascus editions were still available, they would be something else!"

"Was wondering on whether or not I should buy it, I ended up buying it but cancelling it due to anxiety that the blade would not make it through customs. It shipped before I could, it made it through, and voila! The sword is absolutely beautifully crafted, and really weighty! My wall is gonna look awesome once I get my Longclaw and Oathkeeper next to it. 5 Stars Valyrian Steel!!!"

"The only bad thing is that the wood is a lot lighter than the show version, otherwise, an excellent piece!"

"I do not personally own this blade, but a friend of mine does. It\'s absolutely HUGE. I\'ve been collecting blades of all sizes for over 15 years, and this is a fairly impressive piece simply because of its immense and gargantuan size. For a sword of this length and breadth, I personally would prefer a higher grade of carbon steel other than 1060 (considered the bare minimum for most long blades), but if it\'s heat treated correctly then I suppose it isn\'t too crucial. The fact that the blade comes unsharpened is a bit of a downer too. Unless you know how to do it yourself (which most people cannot do properly), it is a bit pricey to have it sharpened professionally. The other thing that made me a little wary was the price tag. It\'s only $300, which is pretty inexpensive/low in the world of real functional blades. It makes me concerned that some corners might be cut in order to bring costs down. In the world of real blades, a functional sword of this size made with proper techniques and steel would be in the $800 range, minimum. How they keep it at $300 is a mystery to me. At any rate, without speaking to its functionality (which I cannot because I have not seen one from this company used to cut anything), it\'s a very nice piece and very beautiful for the price. Definitely a great conversation starter and would make a very nice center piece to any collection. If you are a big fan of the show, I definitely say spend that $300 to get this behemoth. The display plaque that comes with it is also very nicely done, and a rather beautiful addition to this already attractive piece. Also, you better be a real man if you plan on swinging this beast around. It\'s got some serious heft to it, and if you really commit to a swing with it you better have a solid stance and a firm grip or it will really get away from you (or take you with it, as it did with my friend\'s my little brother LOL). Oh yeah, and don\'t forget to keep it oiled and keep your grubby fingers off the blade! It is carbon steel, so it will rust if you do not take care of it, especially if you touch the blade with your nasty paws. Wear gloves or handle with a lightly oily rag, or if you must touch it wash your hands (then oil it after). Keep your hands off the brass bits as well. The oils from your fingers will cause it to tarnish, and even will discolor the wood of the hilt over time. Enjoy your enormous, giant-slaying sword!"

"I was a bit worried about the purchase. How's it going to look? Will it be flimsy? What's the quality like? Well, I received Ice today and I have to say it's spot on what the pictures show. Nice steel blade, smooth wooden finish, and it is truly massive in size! Very nice quality discussion piece. Will definitely buy Needle if they release a show version! *hint hint*"
