Needle is a smallsword wielded by Arya Stark. It was given to her by Jon Snow, who had it made by Mikken, the blacksmith of Winterfell. Arya and Needle are much better suited to the “water dance” style of fencing popular in Braavos and other Free Cities, which emphasizes speed and agility with a thin, light smallsword used in quick thrusting attacks.

Needle is a smallsword wielded by Arya Stark. It was given to her by Jon Snow, who had it made by Mikken, the blacksmith of Winterfell. The sword is well suited to Arya’s slight build, which prevents her from fighting in the style of large male Westerosi knights, who employ powerful slashing moves and strong blocks using a heavy sword.
