It’s not Valyrian Steel, but these Game of Thrones Replica Weapons are Pretty Neat

Whether you prefer the hacking and slashing style of Westeros, or the succinct water dance of Bravos, you need a sword in your hand.

The latex weapon is safer, and you could put it to good use in LARPing, reenacting, and roleplaying.

Mike Schropp made this Final Fantasy VII Buster sword replica out of a whole lot of wood, and finished it to give it this magnificent look.
