"Its ancestral sword, Ice, was forged in ancient Valyria and has been passed down through the generations."
Bran Stark[src]

Ice is a Valyrian steel greatsword and an heirloom of House Stark. It is used both in war and on ceremonial occasions by the Lord Stark.


Season 1

Eddard Stark uses Ice to behead Will, a deserter from the Night's Watch. Theon Greyjoy holds the scabbard, as Eddard draws the blade. He holds the sword before him as he pronounces the sentence. Later on Eddard cleans the sword in the godswood at Winterfell. [1]

Ser Ilyn Payne, the King's Justice, beheads Ned Stark with Ice, on the orders of King Joffrey.[2]

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Ice is a huge and impressive weapon forged out of Valyrian steel and has been in the family's possession for over four centuries. As a Valyrian-forged weapon, it never needs sharpening. Ned uses Ice to execute the Night's Watch deserter Gared and also to sacrifice Lady.
