    I agree! Chad can forget any available vacation time for a while :D

    I'm thinking a cool feather pounded out on the front panel would be cool...have to put some thought into this

    Hmmm, that's a grEIGHT idea!!!

    I may have to get an armored pig with feathered wings stamped onto a leather sheath to symbolize:

    1) Where HOG Feathers come from

    &

    2) The feeling this blade would only be released when "pigs fly" :D

    To paraphrase Elmer Wheeler "Don't sell the bacon, sell the sizzle" This is what legends are made of :D

    When he said pig with wings I instantly thought of those paintings like inside a big old historical Catholic church of the cherubs- they could be little pink naked and chubby pig cherubs floating on their wings.... a couple shots of 1800 adds clarity :D

    My take on Stumpy’s description was a bit different—more like a massive Rob-Stanley-style razorback with rhino-armor skin, rage in his eyes and blood-stained tushes, speed-diving on swept-back wings like an attacking eagle. But sure—he could have meant cherubs.:D

    I'll have to drink on that- Conjuring up one of Rob's creations can be pretty intense from a galaxy far removed from cherubs :eek::eek::eek: -

    Rob could probably supply a rendition of the killer hog in that movie "Boar", but with wings.:D

    All that scene needed was a squadron of Winged Armored Pigs flying above in formation...
