"Careful, Your Grace. Nothing cuts like valyrian steel."
Pycelle to King Joffrey Baratheon whilst wielding Widow's Wail.

Valyrian steel, also known as Dragonsteel, is a form of steel invented in Valyria, and was used to make weapons and various other items of unparallelled quality. Magic and spells play a role in its forging, which makes the steel special and gives it magical characteristics, such as being able to kill Others, cut deeper than normal steel, last longer, etc. The secret to making valyrian steel was lost in the Doom of Valyria, and only a few valyrian steel swords still exist in the world today.
