A Sword Fit for Kings: Forging Real Life Valyrian Steel

If you're keen to live out your own "Game of Thrones" battle fantasy (ahem, good luck), see Richard Furrer. The Wisconsin-based blacksmith forges Ulfberht style swords, the name given to a group of uncommonly strong ninth century Viking blades. No one knows who made the original swords, but Furrer's blades are deadly works of art.
