I am always a lover when it comes to dragon themed swords and this one is definitely a worthy weapon worthy of any dragon-slayer! Housed in the pommel of the sword is a gem that is bright orange like the setting sun or the heart of a roaring fire. The steel of the hilt is the dark grey color of clouds before a devastating storm. The entire hilt is made of steel and the guard and handle are one piece. The inspiration for the sword was recycled from an idea I had while thinking of a design for a Valyrian Steel sword for a Valyrian House before the Doom of Valyria (did I mention Valyrian enough?) The sword itself is a kitten sword which means it can be used as a one handed or a two handed sword.
