With a blade forged from Valyrian steel, Longclaw is undoubtedly the most popular sword in HBO’s Game of Thrones series. Passed down from father to son from generation to generation, Jon Snow was given Longclaw only after serving dutifully and swearing a lifelong oath to the brotherhood of the Night’s Watch.
So what gift could be more appealing to a core GoT fan than the much treasured Longclaw in the form of a sword umbrella?
The handle of the Game of Thrones Sword Umbrella is everything the Longclaw is – visually. Making it a perfect treasure for any Game of Thrones fan out there.
The original Longclaw in the Game of Throne series was forged from the toughest and most sought after metal in GoT – Valyrian steel. Valyrian steel is reputed for its strength, rarity and razor like edges – a perfect metal for the blade of warriors.
Of course, the Sword umbrella does not feature the razor sharp edges of Longclaw – which would obviously make the umbrella dangerous, rather it features a tough cylindrical metallic umbrella shaft in place of the blade, coated in black.
The hilt of Longclaw is one of its most distinguishing features. It is adorned with a wolf’s-head pommel in pale stone and embossed with red eye-like rare gemstones.
Similarly, this Game of Thrones Sword Umbrella features a plastic handle carved in similar fashion as the Longclaw hilt with red plastic gemstones for the eyes.
Black is the color of the Night’s Watch brotherhood. The Canopy of the Sword Umbrella is colored black just like the shaft and made from 100% waterproof polyester to protect you from heavy downpours and sunshine. It is however, not guaranteed to protect you from “The Rains of Castamere”.
The Canopy is about 41 inches in diameter and has “Game of Thrones” written on it. There’s also a strap with a hook and loop for keeping it closed when you’re not using it.
The size of the umbrella is much like that of any standard umbrella – not as large as a golf umbrella, but large enough for two occupants.
The Sword Umbrella is a fun treasure for any Game of Thrones fans out there. It can be gifted, or like real Valyrian swords, it can simply be used to show off and impress your friends who are fellow GoT fans.
