IF I HAD A HAMMER…
March 21, 2011
… wait! I can have a hammer!!
And so can you, thanks to the good folks at Valyrian Steel, who have just unveiled their design for King Robert’s warhammer.
Alas, you can’t order the hammer just yet. We’re still in the design stage, but I have approved these drawings, so the next step is the prototype, which is now being made.
Once I approve that, production can begin. And along about there somewhere, Valyrian Steel will begin taking orders.
For more details, check out their website.
Yes, it is a big hammer. A very big hammer. Going to be heavy as well. I insisted on that. After all, it says right in the book that Robert’s warhammer was so huge and heavy that only someone with his own freakish strength could wield it. So I kept telling them, “bigger, bigger.”
Valyrian Steel has done some lovely versions of Longclaw, Needle, and Ice (all of which remain available from their store), but I think the hammer is my favorite to date.
