We are going to start processing orders for Ice, so you may receive a shipping confirmation. This does not mean your order has shipped. It merely means we have printed the label. We have so many orders to get through that we want to print all the labels up in advance so that the swords can get back out as soon as possible. So, when you see an email and see an email saying your order has shipped, you can get excited, just not too excited.

This is also your last chance to change your address if it has changed.

All of this is applicable for the Damascus Longclaw as well.

24 Thoughts on “Ice Update

  1. Any updates as to when Damascus Ice will be available for pre-order?

    Damascus ICE, I’ll take two, (if one is #77).
    Go on you know you want to!

    You mentioned early on that you would attempt to send the first few in the series to the first people to place their orders.(ie. #1 goes to the first order received #2 to the second, etc.) I’m not sure how early my order came down the line but is this still the case?

  7. We only guarantee numbers for damascus. It just isn’t feasible to do it for the regular editions when you’re dealing with thousands of swords. Sometimes the good numbers are buried, if we had to sort through for each order we’d only get one or two out per day.

    We do try to send lower numbers to the earliest orders, but it ends up largely random.

  8. What’s the point – there are 2000 of them and there is only one of each from #1 to #2000? Every one is unique, number 1 wouldn’t make me happier than number 314 or whatever… And being number 1 means only it was the first to get a number, nothing more.

    All that matters is that it’s a kick-ass sword and GRRM approved and signed it. It’s not like I’ll get it and suddenly get disappointed because it’s not my favorite number.

    Still it would be awesome to have all swords of the same number, but highly unlikely i guess.

    I was just curious that it all. Thanks Valyrian. I’m pretty damn excited and the sword isn’t even mine. I own Longclaw, my little sister, Needle and my little brother will have Ice, though Longclaw and Needle are displayed in my house and I suspect Ice will follow the trend. :D

    My Damascus Longclaw No. 1 and I would beg to differ. :)

  12. Grant, the Damascus Longclaw #1 was especially auctioned, so it’s quite different. It does mean something. Congrats by the way :)

    I’m just curious to know when other people placed their order for the dasmacus longclaw? Mine was placed in Feb 13th, seems a long time to wait if they’re churning out swords every day, but anyhow its just a thought. I can’t wait to swing this bad boy around in the garden at night when nobody can see, hehe.

  14. Adam, you should swing it when everyone can see! I guess your neighbors be jealous, amazed and a bit afraid… But no danger of sunstroke at night, so you might be right after all :)

  15. Got my email today…and I’m a little excited.

  16. Grant on July 20, 2011 at 11:08 am said:

    Thanks Fil. Hopefully, Damascus Ice comes to fruition and we can participate in another auction for the illusive No. 1. ;)

    My order for Damascus Longclaw was made on April 15 and confirmed the same day. I have yet to receive my shipping notice so I may have to wait a few more days than most of you but it is worth every minute.

  18. Yeah i just got my email too and feel immensely excited, i will be tracking everyday i think. I can’t imagine it would take too long to ship overseas to the UK. It will be worth the wait i agree

  19. Are all the currently ordered ice swords going out in this batch? I ordered only a few days ago curious if I’m covered or waiting until December for the second batch .

  20. Everyone is getting a sword from this batch.

    I got my shipping notice yesterday after my first post and a confirmation from the carrier with a tracking number. My Damascus Longclaw will be here soon. A few more days. Russ, nerdchills?, good stuff!
    Even though I got my eBook version of ADWD several days ago I am waiting for the sword before I start to read it. How is that for chills?

    2:55-3:10, hows that for nerd chills?
