This recreation of King Roberts War Hammer is the officially licensed replica from George R.R. Martins A Song of Ice and Fire book series and is a 2nd Edition release. Though it is a hammer of great size and formidable heft, Robert Baratheon could wield it with skill in his prime; Once in your hands it will be easy to see how such a weapon could decisively crush his foes in a single smashing blow. This replica is a favorite of George R.R. Martin himself, who personally sent one to Mark Addy, the actor who played Robert on HBOs Game of Thrones.
The blackened haft of the hammer is steel and the head is cast metal with an antiqued finish and fine detailing. The lower grip is bound in leather and the haft is finished with 24k gold plated rings. Included is a wooden wall-mount display plaque complete with mounting hardware and instructions. A Certificate of Authenticity is also included.
This hammer is a 2nd Edition re-release of King Roberts Hammer – please note that this 2nd edition item is not a limited edition item, nor does it come with the autograph of George R.R. Martin. The autographed limited edition sold out years ago and is no longer available.
Reproduced here is the great hammer of Robert Baratheon; the weapon that with one almighty blow from Roberts gauntlet-clad hands shattered asunder the breastplate of Prince Rhaegar Targaryen. The crushing impact of the weapon showered the waters of the Green Fork with the gleaming rubies that once adorned the armor of the fallen Targaryen – thus giving it the name Ruby Ford. With this hammer in hand, the Stag won the Iron Throne.
