Here’s the background on the sword:
Before setting off for The Wall, Jon Snow, Arya Stark’s bastard half brother, gifted her a sword. After noticing Arya’s enthusiasm for sword play Jon had Mikken, whose mark adorns the blade, create a sword specifically to suit Arya’s physique. Lighter, thinner, and smaller than a typical Westeros blade, the style was closer to that of Braavos across the Narrow Sea, to be used for thusting and slashing, style of combat more suited to the quick and agile, rather than those with raw strength. Jon christened the sword Needle, in homage to Arya’s least favorite hobby of needlework. After arriving in King’s Landing, Arya’s father, Eddard Stark, then the King’s Hand, hired Syrio Forel, a Braavosi waterdancer, to teach Arya how to use her new blade. Syrio taught her that and more, preparing her for what was to come later. When Arya would return from practice sweaty and sore, and Septa Mordane would ask where she had been, Arya could truthfully say she had been doing “Needlework” all along.
