Season 1 of House of The Dragon is close to reaching its conclusion, and while we wait for the finale, props from the series are now beginning to appear in the official Game of Thrones studio tour in Northern Ireland.

The Catspaw Dagger was created by Game of Thrones Weapons Master Tommy Dunne, who revealed that the inspiration behind the design of the weapon came from a deer bone. In an interview with Game of Thrones Studio Tour, Dunne said, “The only brief I was given for the Catspaw Dagger was that the ‘opulence’ had to be there and that it needed to have a Targaryen look and feel to it.”

Dunne used an Impala deer’s antler bone to create the legendary handle of the Catspaw Dagger. He got the bone in South Africa and had it in his workshop when first tasked to come up with the dagger’s design.

He added, “The shape [of the bone] is unusual, so I had to cut the tail end of it off. The tip [of the handle] is a Bodkin arrow. I glued that to the antler bone to create a feel to it.”

Dunne said it was a “very proud moment” to see the dagger appear in House of The Dragon.
