Malky: For everyone that biatches about him not pounding out a blade you should remember he is being paid to make swords being used on a tv show.  He isnt trying to make period masterpieces.  Im guessing that HBO wouldnt pay him for the work to make a proper sword even if he wanted to.


Exactly. HBO understands that making swords for Jamie Lannister is a bad investment.
