Aww, go ahead, steal my thunder. I was going to announce my newest project for sale -- the pimped out pokemon ninja sword. Square titanium tsuba, unobtainium steel blade, saya that acts as a snorkle or poison dust blower (not to self -- do not confuse the two), compass endcap that unscrews to reveal strike anywhere matches in the handle, flames and a bird smoking a cigar on the saya, and pokemon menuki...

Now to build it... Wink

I was, you know, chilling out in the local watering hole once. (OK, so it's been more than once, but this in particular was a grand day indeed.) Some joker insulted my ladyfriend, and I had to defend her honor. I challenged the gent to a duel, which he had no choice but to accept. I snatched the umbrella from my drink, drew the rapier blade concealed within, and quickly dispatched the fiend. Her honor restored... Cool And the rest, as they say, is history.

Thanks to the Albion crew for a good laugh on a personally generally crappy day.

That is freaking hilarious! Thanks for putting the effort into such a worthwhile gag!
So, will you offering Museum Line recreations of each of the Swizzle types? I'm partial to type A, which, correct me if I'm wrong, is based on the Sword of St. Smirnoff.
