I don't have access to anything you couldn't find with Google. I really love the swords used in the series, I wonder who made them? I particularly like the sword of Brienne of Tarth, though Rob Starks sword is pretty nice. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Robs sword is a customized Del Tin St. Maurice.

There are some closeups in here:

Never noticed he had one in the series, but I really like the look of Stannis' rondel.

It looks very much like one of Tod's English Cutler rondels to me http://todsstuff.co.uk/theenglishcutler/knive....htm#thumb.

Hi All,

I made some scabbards and supplied some other bits and pieces and the rondel is one of those.

They are available from the English Cutler site.

Well spotted Neil!

A lot of the secondary character's weapons are straight from MR. The rondel that Yoren threatens the goldcloak's femoral artery with is the OOP brass-hilted one with the black leather cord wrapped handle. Quorin Halfhand's sword is the KoH Sword of Tiberious, with rough leather wrapped over the handle.

I agree, Rob's sword is in the St Maurice style, but intended for 2 handed use, as it has the extended handle, and like most swordsmen in Westeros, he carries no shield (most of the shield carriers I have seen in the show are spearmen).

Beware the Jabberwock my son,
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!

Is anyone interested in setting up a "sword study" page to collect and showcase stills/screencaps/promo images/whatever of the swords in the series in a single place? I'm not a big enough fan of AGoT to do it myself, but I'd be more than happy to share the page and forward calls for help from whoever is maintaining it. Even posting the collected images (as long as it doesn't infringe copyright) in this thread could be a pretty good start.

which is not that brilliant idea imho with THAT pommel

personally even with the extended grip I'd rather choose another one to put my left hand next to
