Stick 'em with the pointy end
— Jon Snow giving Arya Stark her first lesson in swordfighting
Needle is a bravos sword forged by Mikken for Jon Snow to give to Arya Stark.

Appearance Edit

The sword has a thin blade, making it suitable for Arya's build and stature.

Books Edit

A Game of Thrones Edit

Arya is given the sword by Jon as a gift shortly before he rides north to the Night's Watch and she rides south for King's Landing. It is Jon who names the blade, a mockery of how poor Arya is at needlework and a reference to the thin blade.
