Arya Stark’s sword Needle has been forged in real life
Stick them with the pointy end.
A show like Game of Thrones is full of big, medieval-style weapons. There’s Robert Baratheon’s legendary war hammer, Eddard Stark’s great sword Ice, and Jon Snow’s Longclaw.
But the sword that has done some of the most killing is actually one of the smallest—Arya Stark’s Needle. It’s a thin blade perfect for swift swordplay and deadly stabbing, and Arya puts it to use as she protects herself and exacts revenge.
For Arya’s beloved sword, the team based the design on a composite of 18th-century small swords. They even added some extra flare by forging a gorgeous star pattern into the steel.
We can’t wait to see what famous blade the Man at Arms team takes on next.
