It plays a crucial role in the Game of Thrones universe: Valyrian steel.
But what is it exactly? And above all, how was it realized in Game of Thrones and House of the Dragon?
We will explore these questions in our lecture. What is damascene steel, what is blade steel? What are the advantages/disadvantages of the two different manufacturing processes or the finished blades, and what is the significance of hardening?
How is a sword actually made, what are the different types of forging techniques?
What is “false” Damascus steel, how were the Valyrian blades made in Game of Thrones and in House of the Dragon and are there differences? How can you tell a good sword or dagger and are they still made the same way today as they were back then?
Come with us on an exciting journey into the world of steel and learn what you need to be able to make “Valyrian steel” yourself.
We look forward to seeing you.
