I need to announce two things.

1. Longclaw is now available for wholesale ordering. If you’re a retailer and you haven’t been contacted by us yet, contact us if you wish to carry the sword, contact us soon if you wish to have it by Christmas.

2. Needle will be high carbon steel.

Yes, one day, we would like to make a custom scabbard for Longclaw, it’ll depend on interest though.

Until then, we’ve had a few questions about sheaths, and yes, this universal sword sheath will work with Longclaw.

Now, a shipping update. We hope to begin shipping Longclaw the third week of December – Christmas delivery will be close, but still possible.

I’m sure this’ll be on his blog, but just in case you don’t read it.

I got an email from him this morning.

HBO has given the production order for A GAME OF THRONES pilot.
