    This is just my inner dork talking and maybe I have read too much of A Song of Ice and Fire series, but I think a Busse great sword would be as close to Valyrian steel as we could get without a wizard or dragon. I bet a Busse great sword could cleave a man in two without much effort.

    Just my dumb rant of the day.

    The description of Valyrian steel makes it sound like Damascus--two steels blended/folded together. INFI Damascus has been mentioned by Jerry more than once... :eek: :D

    Dude I love that series. I am ~300 pages in to A Feast For Crows right now. I simply can't get enough. But I agree, an INFI Ice would be sick. Maybe you could convince the Custom Shop to make you one for a hefty fee. If not, you can buy Damascus versions of both Ice and Longclaw from here: http://www.valyriansteel.com/shop/

    When I think Valyrian steel, I think of Damascus because of the way he describes how it is folded on itself and has a rippled appearance. INFI is sure to be tougher though.

    They'd have to call it something else. There's a company out there that's got GRRM's blessing named "valyrian steel" that makes replicas that GRRM signs off on from a design perspective. Of course they couldnt make Ice to actual size though based on the description in the book (blade the width of a mans hand and almost 5 feet in length) but they offer Longclaw, Ice, Needle and dragonglass daggers. They've done limited runs in actual damascus but they have some kind of patina they put on the stainless to make it look like damascus. I would love to see oathkeeper or widow's wail based on the description in the book. They will probably have a new model soon based on some of the discussions on the wiki of ice and fire forum, I think the dagger Joffrey gave to the assassin to kill Bran was in the lead last time I looked.

    Georgous blade, but in Infi, would 5K touch it? Or would you be looking at an 8 thousand dollar blade?

    I'm still digging a gigantic sledge hammer in INFI. I think dericdesmond brought it up in another thread and I suggested that, and suddenly lots of people were onto the war hammer idea.

    King Robert's Warhammer in INFI would be deadly cool.

    Really? Don't recall that.

    I know that at least one Hog believes that INFI is a multi-layered, damascus-like steel, but that is just his opinion.

    Not much on Damascus due to the older shotguns you can't shoot, but I do love an infi sword. Have you seen the AK?

    Here's one mention of it and I think I have seen another but didn't find it quick and easy.

    Huge fan of the series! I am most of the way through "a feast for crows," and am currently (as I type) watching episode 4 of the HBO series!

    I'm a little jealous of you guys just starting the series. The wait for A Dance of Dragons was BRUTAL! GRRM gives Jerry Busse a run for his money when it comes to two weeks!

    more than brutal it was excruciating! George is definitely not the fastest writer ever. The show took also some of his time along with watching the NFL... Hopefully now that the show is running we won't have to wait 6 years before the release of winds of winter...

    and I am also up for a damascus INFI blade, it will be a nice backup for my gladius :D

    Agreed. For years I would visit GRRM's blog and this Busse forum to see what was up on a daily basis. Too often, GRRM only talked about the Giants and Jets. GRRM did say that several chapters are written for the next book and that the final book has a full outline completed. His storyline got too complicated and A Dance with Dragons took many rewrites to get the sequencing straightened out. Hopefully it's smooth sailing at this point and A Song of Ice and Fire won't end tragically like A Wheel of Time did with Robert Jordan's illness/death. And by tragically I don't mean the actual storyline but the writing process. The first five WoT books were killer and then they went down hill so badly I've still never been able to get through the seventh book, let alone any of the ones written by Sanderson after Jordan's death. :(

    I blew through the first three books and I am dragging a bit though A Feast for Crows, I think I am subconsciously reading slow so I can get the most time out of them before Winds of Winter.
