Could the same Throniemania behind Game of Thrones’ recent episode leak lead to a high demand for scrap metal?

Whether you’re a die-hard fan or a new Thronie (a self-labeled term for fellow Game of Thrones enthusiasts), if you’ve watched one episode of the popular television series, you’ve probably noticed the swords. With names like Widow’s Wail, Lightbringer, Lady Forlorn and Blackfyre, the swords are a big part of the show – almost official cast members, actually.

In fact, the swords are so popular many DIYers are recreating their own using scrap metal! According to many online forums, good choices are coil springs, timing chains and leaf spring steel.

While you may not find Valyrian steel – the ultimate, highly coveted metal for swords in the TV series – you can find a surprisingly extensive list of metals and other scrap materials at our client’s site, iScrap App. And even if you’re not a Thronie looking to forge an impressive conversation piece, you can also find the latest metal prices and news at the iScrap Blog.

And while you’re at it, tell us what you thought about the Season 5 kickoff, leaked or not. We won’t tell.

P.S.: If you think forging a sword from scrap metal is a fun weekend project, check out how this guy recreated the throne from Game of Thrones using duplex nails.
