Needle is a thin smallsword wielded by Arya Stark in the Game of Thrones series. It was given to her by Jon Snow, who had it made by the blacksmith of Winterfell, Mikken.
The smallsword is light and fast, perfect for young Arya who is too small to fight in the style of the large male Westerosi knights. Needle is better suited to the ‘Water Dance’ style of fighting, which is taught to Arya by master swordsman, Syrio Forel.
Needle is triangular section, designed for thrusting, not slashing.
