"There are three living smiths who know how to re-work Valyrian steel. The finest of them was in Volantis. He came here to King's Landing at my invitation."
Tywin Lannister[src]
​Valyrian sword smith is a minor character in the fourth season. He is played by weapons master Tommy Dunne and only appears in "Two Swords".



Established on Volantis, he is the most skilled smith in the known world. He is one of only three smiths in the world who can re-work Valyrian steel.

Season 4

At the request of Tywin Lannister he travels to King's Landing and melts down House Stark's Valyrian steel greatsword Ice into two smaller swords. Tywin gives one of these to his son Jaime, and the other to his grandson, King Joffrey.[1]

Behind the scenes

The smith is played by behind-the-scenes artisan and weaponsmith Tommy Dunne, who forges the weapons used in the series.

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Ice is re-forged by Tobho Mott rather than a smith from Volantis. The knowledge of reworking Valyrian steel is still a closely guarded secret, but by the smiths of Qohor, who number much more than three. The sword smith in the episode is not stated to be Volantene, only established there, so it's possible he could still be Qohorik.
