\ Longclaw, Sword of Jon Snow
"Whether you're a fan of George R. R. Martin or just had the thought "Who is that guy?" run through your head reading this, Longclaw is a wonderful sword. No matter who you are, you have to be amazed by Valyrian Steel's attention to detail with this thing. The ripples from being folded are just as I imagined them, and the finish is great too.
Like Rebecca, I too am now a lifelong customer."

"The sword looks great, and Valyrian is a good company who effectively communicates with their customers. I hung it on the wall with the plaque (included) next to the certificate (Signed by GRRM) and it makes me smile when walking through the room. It looks exactly as I imagined it in the books, and for the price it is a great replica blade. Can't wait for the next ones, needle in high carbon is something to be exited about and Ice is sure to be magnificent. Get your Ice & Fire blades here folks!"

"The sword is amazing I was sooo excited when I received it, only think that made me mad was Fedex didnt require a signature and left this baby outside in the cold for someone to steal, luckly I had someone watching for it and put it in my house when it arrived or I would have been super pissed :)
Other than that, I cant wait for the next sword :)"

"The title pretty much speaks for its self, the sword is wonderful, I can't wait to get my hands on the next one. The ripple finish is great."

"Longclaw is absolutely amazing! The attention to detail is outstanding, and the finish on the blade is superb looking. I can't praise this sword enough, and I have to admit that Valyrian Steel now has a lifelong customer -- the next pieces in the series are a must have for this fan."

"This is my first replica sword and I have to say that I am thoroughly impressed. The attention to detail is great, the plaque is awesome and it looks fantastic hanging on my wall. I hope the rest of the Song of Ice and Fire blades and crafted with the same attention to detail. Keep it up Valyrian Steel!!"

"I am very happy with the overall quality of this blade! The detail is awesome & it has a nice heft. It is a fine & accurate copy based on the description in the books & the quality of the sword really needs to be seen & held to be believed. Shipping was fast & reasonable. I cannot wait to purchase Ice & hang it up with the rest of my swords..."

"Great sword, nice plaque. I was very happy to find that even though I was included in the International Orders shipment, I still recieved number 0320 which is fairly low. It's nice to know that they kept their word and randomized shipments.
I'm also very pleased with the wolfs head, it is very obviously not stone, BUT there are 0 casting lines any where on the sword. I have a 400 dollar sword from another company with multiple cast lines. I also have a hand forged claymore that ran around 600 that is usable for SCCA and such that is vastly inferior in detail compared to Longclaw.
I couldn't be happier, and am enthusiasticly awaiting the next bit of steel."

"The sword is amazing to look at and feels great in the hand. The plaque also looks great and the sword hangers are much superior to some sword hangers although they are pssibly too clse together making lifting the sword out difficult.
Otherwise the sword is great and gets full marks from me and i thoroughly look forward to future swords."

"I don't know much about swords. I know I like to read about them, but never handled one in real life. Let me tell you.....This piece is heavy! The blade enlightens you to the athleticism needed to be proficient wielding that much steel. Kudos, Jon Snow!
The entire package is superb.... Plaque, COA, etched numbering. I have #0074!
But the greatest qualities about this sword are the little things. The sound of the Leather wrap while gripping the hilt. The ringing steel when mounting/unmounting from the plaque. The great balance of weight in your hand. All these things I've read about but never understood until now.
Thanks all at Valyrian Steel. Thanks G R.R. Martin.

"i just got longclaw in the mail and it is just like i thought it would be like.it's a great sword thank u"

"I'd like to state that this is the first sword I've ever purchased, and can hence make no comparisons. I can tell you, however, that this is a marvelous piece of craftsmanship. It now hangs proudly on my wall, and everyone I know is interested in seeing it. It excelled my expectations, and for the price, there is hardly anything that can compare in terms of quality. I wish Valyrian Steel and Jalic success in their future endeavours, and I intend to contribute to it with their future products. If you're hesitating, don't. You can only be satisfied with Longclaw."

outstanding sword from an outstanding company
"I pre ordered this sword waaaaay back when they first allowed it to be preordered and had to make myself forget about it for a little while as they worked through the art, preproduction, manufacturing, and shipping phases of creating it so I could bare the wait for this masterpiece.
But when the time came, I was updated by Valyrian Steel that the swords had shipped, emailed with my tracking number, and sure enough, it was on my doorstep before the year ended just as they had promised.
The quality of the sword is outstanding. I show piece only, for sure, but well crafted and balanced, and shipped with both an amazing wall mount and a certificate of authenticity signed by George R R Martin.
Fantastic piece, Fantastic buying experience, Fantastic Company. I cannot wait until the next release.

Better than a Heron-Marked Blade...
"It was either this or a Heron-Marked blade of Wheel of Time fame, as a Birthday present. The very cool etching in the steel really adds to the feel and look, making this something very different from any other display sword I have seen.
If you are a GRRM fan or just a fan of fantasy weaponry in general, this is a MUST HAVE!
Feb 09 2009, 01:53 AMby Jason
This is what I said when i opened the box containing Longclaw.
I thought it was beautyful even watchin it on photos. But now i think it's even better!
Textures on the blade are awesome. The blade results dark as i always imagined valyrian steel.
Nothing else to say. Looking forward for Ice and Oathkeeper.
Bye (sorry for my bad english)"

"Its more than you want it to be. I don’t know much about swords. I thought it was going to be a lot less impressive than it is. Its now hanging in my family’s sitting room. Those of my family that have read the books love it and it is and it is a reminder of how important the storyline is to them, not just John Snow, but the whole of a song of ice and fire. Those who havn’t read the books are promised to read it in the near future, from the enthusiasm brought up from conversation from the sword, and the family pressure on what they're missing out on. I feel attached to this sword. Its now a part of the family."

Most beautiful gift I've given myself...
"Without a doubt, well worth the wait. I saw this waaaaaaaaay back when it was still a prototype & finally broke down & ordered it. Received it today #880. This is the most beautiful awesome blade a girl could ever dream of!!!!!!!!"

"I just got my Longclaw today and this is my first Knightly sword. And it is amazing. I love it. If you are a fan of Ice and Fire or a fan of Jon Snow you NEED this sword on your wall."

"I'm staying anonymous, because the sword is going to be a gift, and I don't want to give it away.
I'm not sure what number is on the sword. I forget to check before putting it away in it's hiding place.
It is GORGEOUS. The quality is above and beyond what I expected. I understand why the certificate was not numbered - human error could make that a little tangly. I don't mind numbering it myself! Needle next year? I think so!"

Unbelievable and Helps Bring More Realism to the Story
"I just received #635 in the mail today for my christmas present and I must say that this sword is beautiful. I've been a life-long lover of all things fantasy and medieval. I have always dreamed of owning an actual sword and armor and with this sword I have taken the first step in fulfilling those dreams.
Now onto the sword itself. The blade is very nice and I love the "etchings." The pommel is leather and is wrapped very nicely. The hilt is sweet as well. And the wolf's head is very detailed and I absolutely love the eyes of the wolf. The only complaint is that the wolf's head is possibly a little too big (but no biggie there).
The balance of the blade is nicely done as well. When I saw the actual length of the blade, I was worried that it might be a little flimsy, but it feels nice in my hand and I must say that I am extremely impressed.
Valyrian, you have made a customer for life with me and I plan on getting other blades that you complete. I am very happy that this is the first sword in my collection."

"Just opened the box about 10min ago. Very impressed to say the least. I can't wait to get my hands on needle,since Arya Stark is my favourite character ! The packaging is awesome, very classy looking. Definitely worth preserving all by itself .(to Valyrian steel) Here's hoping you get good sales and are able to continue the series. Just be patient because alot of people are not even aware you exist. I'll try to spread the word. It's my first sword and I love it. Canadian customers be prepared to pay an extra 40$ due to a customs charge. Oh it's worth it!!! Proud owner of #406...yipppppeeee"

"Really good swordcraft, blade, grip, balance, everything is great, the only thing I do not like that much is wolf's head, which is, by my opinion too big. Everything else is on the highest level. And by the way, shipped very fast (three weeks) and without any shipping problems (with standard shipping) in Montenegro"

"Just got my sword in this week and I gotta say its beautiful. It looks great mounted on the wall and brings great memories to asoiaf. I guess I got lucky with the random numbers and got a really low rare number 4. Which happends to be my favorite number, anyways thanks for a great product."

Wow what an awesome sword!
"Slight mix up in my order but customer service was very polite in sorting it all out so an extra star on top of the 5 I am giving this sword. I just got it today and it is amazing! It is better then I imagined after reading all these good reviews. I can't believe how big it is, 50 inches in total length, and its heavy. It feels like a real sword other then its not sharpened. I couldn't imagine using it in battle and not being tired after swinging it a few times. I'm not exactally a small guy either.
I recieved #600 and the number is on the back of the sword so it doesn't really matter if its on the certificate or not. It's great to finally get this after waiting 2 weeks. I can finish A Storm of Swords now :). Im about half whay through and stopped on a Jon Snow chapter when I ordered this.
Anyways, the sword is really well made you won't be disapointed. My only regret is that I didn't order the damascus version :(. Oh well, I'm looking forward to the damascus version of Ice."

"I got my sword a while back it just took me a little longer to write this review. First of all i love this sword, its great. The only thing i would like to point out is if you are interested in this sword and you choose to pay through regular mail, then be prepared to wait a while. It took about two months until my mail got delivered to Valyrian Steel (from western Europe). Just take that into consideration when you order because i didn't know how long it will take and went almost crazy from the anticipation.
The sword itself is really great, i especially like the hilt with the wolf head pommel and the cross-guard. I was expecting the lines on the blade would be diagonal so it would have the "dripping blood" effect but i like it this way too. Overall i really love this sword. Its verry well made, it brings the story of ASOIAF in your every day life and it looks great on the wall. Win-win-win."

"A stunning blade of impeccable craftsmanship. Though thinner at the edge than most replicas I've encountered, the blade wobbles not at all. The smoky finish of the steel evokes Martin's imagery of old Valyria's legendary craftsmanship perfectly, and the wolf's head pommel caps a gorgeous piece."
Dec 02 2010, 22:09 PMby Bryan
"It is alot larger than I pictured it. The blade is nearly the width of my hand by the cross-guard, and tapers to what I would expect the width of a hand-and a-half sword should be. I also think that the wolf's head pommel is real sharp. This is going to make a great gift to a friend of mine for Yule. And I intend to also preorder Ice once I get a few more oaychecks under me."

"I received my Longclaw #1385 today and it is awesome! The Wolf pommel is well shaped and flawless. The grip looks and feels good. The valyrian steel effect on the blade looks good and makes it original to anything I have. I'm thinking of hanging it in my living room and I will be keeping my Ice pre-order.
Two things that need fix are that the serial number is not written or typed on the certificate (even though there is a specific spot printed for it) and the word "China" is printed on the blade (backside, near the serial number and trademark stuff)."

"Just recieved Longclaw #1703 today and am very impressed. It is alot bigger than I had imangined it to be and the blade is beautiful with the triple fuller and I can't praise the wolf pommel enough!! The grip surprised me also with how soft and high quality it was. Great work and this will make a great addition to my collection. Looking forward to collecting whatever else you my come up with."

"I just recieved this sword yesterday, and it's a nice piece of work, especially given the price. It's heavier and bigger than I imagined, but that's a good thing! I will definitely be purchasing Ice soon, as well as Needle, and any other weapon that comes through the pipeline."

"Just un-boxed Longclaw #583, and Valyrian Steel has done an amazing job with it, this sword is definitely a piece of art! Can't wait to see what it looks like mounted on the wall in my room! Will be ordering Ice, and Needle very soon :)
My only gripe is that the C.O.D charge was a little higher than I expected it to be ($85). But I guess that's to be expected when importing goods, especially when it's a sword :p"
Jun 29 2011, 14:51 PMby Joshua Patry
"Don't think of this just as a sword - it's as fine a work of art as any sculpture, painting or photo hanging on my wall. The attention to detail is fantastic, and it's an impressive display in every respect. Thank you Valyrian Steel!"

"Just got #87 in Nova Scotia,Canada. It took about 8 days to arrive and 12 days to recieve it (a mix up at post office). It is everything I thought it would be, The wolf head is imo the best part. Trying to decide if I should buy ice or wait and see what oathkeeper looks like."

Got Longclaw for my birthday
"My husband presented me with Longclaw this afternoon for my birthday.
It was a great gift and I love it."

"I just got my #85 all the way in New Zealand a week after purchasing it. I received it in the morning and it proved detrimental to my punctual arrival at work. The quality of the product is nothing short of amazing: It's heavy, and feels incredibly solid to hold. (Albeit a little wobbly, but emphases on a little.) This is definitely going on a wall to be displayed proudly. :)"

"I have been a reader of Mr. Martin for a number of years and have greatly enjoyed his "A Song of Ice and Fire" series. I was excited when the HBO series came out, hoping the best and for once that hope was well rewarded. My father and I ended up sharing the HBO series and he became enamored of Martin's Universe of the deadly, beautiful, profane and divine. Last week I ordered Longclaw as a birthday present for him as he not only identified with the character of Jon Snow, but also has great affection for wolves. It arrived today and is in pristine condition, I'm sure in just the way that it shipped. No hassle, no fuss and I feel quite sure that if there had been any problem that the folks @ Valyrian Steel would've come to the rescue. I am more then pleased with this purchase and will certainly procure further swords from here. Thank you very much for making this a special birthday for us all."

Everything that I hoped for
"Yesterday my Longclaw #0088 arrived in New Zealand. Unboxed it immediately and shared it around the office. Everybody, especially myself, was stunned a how 'real' it felt. This is not your typical display sword. The weight is tremendous, the quality of the construction immaculate. The wolf's head pommel is the crowning glory. The feeling of wrapping my hands around Longclaw's leather grip for the first time will be a memory that I cherish for years to come. Thank you Valerian Steel!"
Jul 29 2011, 13:45 PMby James
"My Longclaw, number 595, was delivered today, a birthday gift from my son who introduced me to George R. R. Martin and A Song of Ice and Fire. I am humbled to be an owner of this extraordinary piece of art, representing the finest traditions of honor and strength. The craftsmanship is outstanding, the heft and feel is powerful and awe-inspiring. This is a piece that anyone would be proud to own and display, whether or not they were familiar with its background and story. Well done, Valyrian Steel!"

"Thats exactly what I am, My sword, Longclaw 1038 just arrived at my home, and I am totaly in love with it, even with the UPS shipment I choose(which was expensive since I live in Sweden) it was worth every cent of it. I love this sword!
Thank you Valrian Steel"

MY CLAW IS AS LONG AND AS SHARP AS YOURS, MY LORD
"Sword is beyond beautiful. All the picture gazing never prepares you for when you see it with your own eyes and heft it with your own hands. Craftmanship is excellent, to the Valyrian etchings, crossguard, leather wrapping, and the wolf's head. Ornate for a bastard, but the plaque serves for how honorable of a blade it proudly displays. Would have paid a little bit more for a sheath and baldric from Valyrian if offered. Really makes you feel that when Winter comes, you'll be ready for it."
Aug 10 2011, 21:38 PMby Dave Baska
"I received #1149 on August 10, 2011. The sword exceeded my expectation. It is beautifully crafted and looks great on my wall! I love the details and the etchings on the blade. Looks pretty much what I had imagined the sword to look like. I'll definitely purchase another sword from Valyrian Steel in the future!"
Aug 13 2011, 18:10 PMby Josh
"I received my #0228 on August 19th. I was very excited for this sword and in all honestly it was far better than I expected. To be honest I have never owned a sword before though many of my friends do. Compared to those they bought, this product was much much better. The overall quality is much higher and it shows. Seeing this sword up close is far better than any picture. The craftsmanship of the wolf's head just adds so much to the sword and the careful attention that was put into the blade itself is magnificent. I am completely satisfied and would recommend this sword to collectors or fans of the novels or television series."
Aug 20 2011, 00:04 AMby Ty
"I just received my #0001 Long Claw. After reading all the reviews and looking at the pictures over and over again all I can say is that it is AMAZING... the craftsmanship on the sword is excellent. I was pleasantly surprised to find out I got #0001 after all this time the sword´s been out there. It just makes it even more special and the perfect start of my collection. Thank you Valyrian Steel."

Even Better Than I Expected!
"I was a little dubious as to how Longclaw would look in "person" once I received it but I was pleasantly surprised. I like that it has somewhat of an edge to it, though just blunt enough to slip easily through customs in Australia.
My first impression is that it's huge! I expected it to be relatively big but pictures don't do it justice. The tang is about 1-2cm wider than I thought viewing photos online and when stood upright the pommel comes nearly to my sternum (I'm 6' 4"), which is definitely in line with the descriptions of it being necessarily slung on Jon's back in the book.
The wolf head pommel was another pleasant surprise, I had read descriptions of it being "too plasticky" but whatever material it is made of seems to resemble stone, quite like alabaster and the detail is great. It's rather heavy to lift, everyone around my office had their hands shaking while trying to hold it out.
I got a brief moment of accidental sword combat when one of our admins was having a look at it without paying attention to me and swung it about 20cm past where my neck would have been was I not paying attention and leant back...being on the end of that I can say it's terrifying enough to scare off home invaders though I wouldn't recommend it :p.
#169 is a fine piece and I would certainly recommend it to any fan of the series or books whom are interested. At this price for the apparent quality it seems a bargain to me, even after paying $90USD to have it shipped over here. The only improvements I think could be made are to the red eyes on the pommel and by including a scabbard but for what you pay you certainly couldn't expect more, in fact I was expecting a lot less and would have been happy had it only met my expectations."

"Beautiful sword! I received mine as a gift today and am absolutely thrilled with it. I own a few other swords but none of them compare in attractiveness to this."
Sep 22 2011, 21:42 PMby Mirrikat
Awesome, but slight flaw!
"Just received #170 today! Sword looks and feels amazing. My only major disappointment was that part of the hilt was loose and pulled right off. I'm going to pick up some metal adhesive from a local hobby shop and should be able to fix it up no problem (Shipping took forever due to Customs and I don't want to deal with that again). I haven't seen any other reviews stating anyone else has had this issue so I assume it's a one off but still a bit of a sad surprise. Also, thought the typo on the box and certificate of "Passed from father to son, the the hand... was a bit odd bit it didn't put me off from the sword in the slightest."
Sep 23 2011, 21:02 PMby JohnC
"I received #0671 last night as a gift from my girlfriend. It's awesome from hilt to tip! Looks amazing on my wall with the mounting plaque, which itself is a work of art. The one thing that I think keeps it from being perfect, and this has been mentioned before, is that the blade is a bit thinner than I expected. I don't feel that this is a major flaw, however; more like myself nitpicking. I definitely plan on purchasing more Valyrian Steel swords in the future!"
Oct 04 2011, 10:22 AMby Jordan
"This got here so fast I didn't even have time to intercept the mail before my wife found it. Much larger then i expected and the quality is excellent. The plaque is perfect as well and there was an empty screw on the wall just waiting for it. Even the wife was impressed when I took it out because her protestss were half- hearted. Wait until she sees Ice Damascus which I am about to order next!"
Nov 05 2011, 13:36 PMby Mike
"Apart from the leather grip being slightly loose (if anyone else has this problem, leave the sword in the bathroom while you have a very steamy shower, as the moisture will help to tighten the leather) my new impressively well made Longclaw has terrified my room mate and made me the envy of every Song of Ice and Fire enthusiast I know. Thanks Valyrian Steel.
Hope you guys end up making Viserys' sword!

"The sword (#1690) is absolutely beautiful! Much bigger and heavier than I was expecting but it's not a problem. I haven't found the perfect wall space to hang it yet, so for now it leans against my desk. Sometimes I just sit and stare at it. Yeah, it's that good!"

"Just received my #1488 Longclaw and it is awesome!! The rippling effect is great, it is nice and sturdy, and the leather grip is solid. The pommel with Ghost on top is stellar and looks fierce from across the room. Definitely worth the investment. Thanks Valyrian Steel for making an awesome product. Now I just need to find someone to buy me a scabbard for the holidays!!"

"Woke up on Christmas morning, watched my family open gifts, & was enjoying a great Christmas when my wife-already the GREATEST WIFE ON EARTH before this mind you-tells me she forgot one gift in our car. I got the keys and headed out in the cold. When I saw the box my first thought was "Oh great, it must be a weed eater or some other garden tool.." I brought the long rectangular box in and started to unwrap it when I saw "Valyrian Steel" on the box and instantly went crazier than my 4 year old when SHE opened her gifts!!! WOW, is all I can say! I got #1599 and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! The detail & craftsmanship are second to none, and it really does have the "feel" of exactly what I'd imagined this sword to feel like! What an amazing gift & what an amazing wife!! Thank You angel! LOVE IT!!"

"Got Longclaw as a gift from my fiancé for the holidays. Best gift ever. It's simply beautiful. The wolf's head and its red eyes are my favorite feature. Holding it is empowering. I definitely plan on adding to my Valyrian Steel collection in the future, and can't wait to see what other weapons you guys come up with. And, of course....Winter is Coming, and I couldn't be happier!"

"I was totally blown away by this sword.
Only found out about Valyrian Steel by accident. I saw Longclaw in the series and immediately googled Longclaw replica and arrived here.
When it arrived I was stunned! The detail in the blade is beautiful and better than the show thanks to it being more of a vision from the books.
The hilt is well put together and the pommel is fantastic. The red eyes in the pommel are a fantastic touch.
If you are wondering if you should by this sword, stop and just buy it.

"Received the sword from my wife as an x-mas present. We are both huge fans of the show and the books. I had no idea what she ordered but when i opened it i can only describe the feeling like i was one of those kids in a youtube vid where they open up a nintendo on x-mas morning.
Looks great on my wall too http://imgur.com/a/rXDhg"

"I have just recieved my "1525" Longclaw today (England, London) had to pay customs duty, Import VAT with parcel force, but Im more than happy with the Sword, it looks awesome, a highly detailed and well made sword, much bigger than i inspected!! but will look so good up on its mount next to the rest of my sword collection. the only small thing is its a shame it does not come with a scabbard! but even so, im still very impressed Thank you very much"

"Just recieved my "1536" longclaw, totally leggendary! And the best part is that, we had a fairly warm winter season here in northern italy this year, but the same day as my sword is delivered a cold front of polar air comes and kicks the °T below zero...
I guess for me the winter has truly come
and now, off to the workshop to build a scabbard!"

"Thank you so much, this year Ihad a stroke at 35, my wife left, lost custody of my child, and my grandmother died. With this sword my son, who I now share, knighted me. As a father I am his protector, from where Longclaw hangs you can sense a family heirloom that I will I've my son one day. Valerian Steel and Mr. Martin made this a year of turn around for me. I can't thank you enough! It has given me the confidence to write again through the pain. May God bless each and every one of you, You could not have made a better product. You all should be so proud."

Excellent product, stunning
"Well, what can I say that has not been said already. This sword is amazing. My first sword I have ever owned and I am very happy this particular one was my first purchase. I'm wondering, is there a way to put more of an edge on it? The tip of the blade is somewhat blunted. Though I won't be using it as a weapon, I would still like to sharpen the tip a bit."

"Longclaw just arrived today. After reading all the good reviews I decided to order it and I can say I'm impressed! Great craftsmanship on hilt, pommel, and blade. The pictures really do not do it justice. The blade really does "sing" as you swing it with no rattle at all. Overall solidly built great work Valyrian,now all I need is some armour. Excited for the hounds helm.
NOTE: For my fellow Canadians be prepared to pay extra for customs. I payed Ups basic to Toronto, but had an additional $54 C.O.D. Charge.
Still well worth it for the price Valyrian you just made another lifetime customer once I save up the cash :)"

"I received my 0117 Longclaw yesterday and I am absolutely thrilled with it! It arrived much, MUCH earlier than I was expecting (6 days shipping!) and I didn't have to pay any extra customs or whatnot.
My only complaint is that the leather on the hilt is more ornamental than functional; it slips a bit with usage (not tight to the hilt), I'm afraid of tearing it so no playing with the sword!
I'm quite the nerdy amateur photographer and I'm editing a little video I made of the sword and its first mounting on the plaque on my wall, I'll post a link when I get it up on youtube!
Very quality product!!"

"Oh boy, that was a difficult quest. Elite monsters like incompetent German border customs or credit cards that won't get accepted by american banks, while my bank tells me that "everythings fine". But thanks to Valyrian Steel, their patience and help, everything turned out great. I would give more than 5 stars if only I could.
The sword itself is amazing, just like everyone said already."

"I live in France, just received it, and love it. Five Stars for the sword and Valyrian Steel."

"beautifully crafted blade, strong and sturdy you can tell no expense was made making it. It was definitely worth every last penny of my pay check.

"Received the sword today in the U.K. had an extra £30 to pay on customs here but I was expecting more so wasn't a shock.
The Sword itself is of great quality and the help from Valyrian Steel was flawless, quick and knowledgeable support.
Would of been perfect had the certificate of authenticity been filled in with the edition number. Other than that, absolutely perfect."
