    well, to be clear, during our extensive marketing campaign, jai agreed to shark the dubh, and i agreed to shark the R3, or at least that's how it worked out.

    mmMMM, "Nepal deer antler handle", shiny :)

    as for barbie, slap some pink barbie stickers on a WWII and nobody will notice it's not a car :)

    That Tibetan sword has a great handle. I have a carved horn one, but this is really nice.

    Email sent on the yin yan sword. I hope this is as nice as the first one. Beautiful work. Hopefully I'm not too late.

    P.S. Just researched this and see the evolution of the design. The first two had big curved S guards and heavy inlay on the scabbards, and were more $ because of it. #3 had the guard modified by Pala, and a horn and antler handle with no stone inlay, just the yin/yan symbols, but was really beautiful. This one continues with the standard guard and a minimal inlay on the scabbard, but I really like the looks of it.

    The first one did have a laced frog which was nice, but was the only one to have it. One of our resident leather guys could whip one up on their lunch breaks I'm sure...

    I've seen this co-operation amongst sharks many times in HI land. Very frightening implications. Fortunately, their namesakes in the wild rarely cooperate, but mob or swarm. Still, watching Jaiofspam and Bladite parse the spoils reminds one of an African scene where a Zebra carcass is shared by wild dogs and Hyenas.

    Sorry JW! This old shark is big and slow and his fins are frayed, but his teeth are still pretty good...:rolleyes: :D

    Actually, I waited 2 and a half hours and it was still there so I figured it must have been fate or something. Still, had a hard time deciding after looking at the carving on that tibetan handle.
