Working …

I’m WLM (working like mad) right now and rarely have time for anything else.
Nope I’m not complaining at all – mostly I’m dirty but very happy

oh and here’s a funny picture I took recently.
I put a blade into a jar containing ferric chloride for etching. Even though one cannot see through that liquid one can make out the outline of the blade by the bubbles the etching process produces:

    Herr Unfuck, I doubt that I could teach Cederq anything about proctology, except that he should wash his hands when he finishes each job. Do you think he is feeling about, searching for his lost 10mm sockets, or loose change? He’d probably get more customers to his travelling* cut-rate procto/prostate wagon if he included lubricant, and not just old sump oil either. *he has to be mobile to stay ahead of the law, and Hill ‘n Bill.

    Cederq will freely tell you everything you don’t care to know about his Chevy camper, and it’s anti-Antifa gaybar. As far as staying ahead of the law goes, I think it’s just coincidental that he moves around in the pattern of a serial killer stalking fresh victims. More likely, is that he is fleeing potential Arkancide, so your knife may end up used in defence against the forces of evil. It may be that you should include select shamanic runes in the design, he’ll need the help. You’d better hope that Hill ‘n Bill don’t get the impression that he let you in on their dirty secret.

      It is not a Chevy camper, it is a travel trailer pulled by a Chevy truck. Ya know you are astute Sir Johno… I do travel and flit about with a pattern much as a serial killer. You could deduce a pattern out of that. Now, to match me up with nefarious activities in each of the locals I have visited would be take a master detective… Or, it could be I wanted to see different parts of the country on a shoe string budget and on a tire and a prayer. Which, come early spring I will be back to doing that after my kidney debacle asserts itself. My plan next spring is to hit the Atlantic bordered states in more, slower detail. I can send you picture postcards of my adventure and itinerary.

    Cederq, instead of picture postcards, when the Atlantic coast gets too wet to drive any further, why not put your rig on a freighter and sail across the waves to Europe’s landfall, then drive around asking if they know where Unfuck U’s asylum is. Make sure to take Deathray with you for company, and also, the proper universal greeting is now “Allahu Akhbar!”, and be sure to show off that bespoke knife to impress people. When yelling at foreigners to ask directions. If they don’t know any Herr Dok Unfuck, just yell louder, that tactic has always endeared Yanks to other nationalities. Also, you’re looking for Austria: not Austraiia, there is a difference! Herr Unfuck is quite mistaken about suddenly needing to “visit the Baltic to search for amber to mount on knife pommels”. I checked with Frau Unfuck, her husband is home, but must have dropped something behind the hay in the barn, he has been crouched down, looking for it all day.

    Unfuck, I have an idea for Cederq’s shamanic protection device. Years, decades ago, I saw the Ken Russell film Crimes Of Passion, starring a sexy (pre Romancing The Stone) Kathleen Turner, pursued by psycho killer (naturally) preacher Anthony Perkins. Right at the end of the movie, Perkins gets a 2′ long (quite sharp) custom dildo plunged through his chest by Turner. With the crowd that he tends to mix with, he’d be able to wear it openly, barely raising an eyebrow. I place no charge on this suggestion for Cederq, just put me in the neighbouring cell for a week, during his next stay in the asylum.

    Unfuck, it’s evident that you’re a busy bloke. So something that ties your smithing hobby with the Asylum, but could turn a quid would be welcome, no? I assume that not all your forged steel becomes attractive knives, so, with the use of a stamping die, I think you’d sell some Asylum ID tags. Naturally, were Cederq to buy one, it should be a particularly twisted sort. These need not, nor should not be very big, and will look good. It’s just an idea.

      The die I use now has been made for my purposes and it was one of the things I got additionally for buying the forging press.
      I could use the old stamp which is a rune but I can’t see a connection with The Asylum when using it.

    Herr Unfuck, a challenge coin would need to be struck with a die, and have real artwork, but would be desirable but expensive. Whereas an Asylum tag should be plain, and a handheld number/letter stamp be well suited for the purpose. You will get extra money from Cederq and Deathray (are they twins, seperated at birth?), if you tell them that Nurse Sandy wore it, nestled on her chest.

It is that the poor bloke thought she was Injun, and he could wangle his way into Native American lands normally out of bounds to his white man’s fur trapping. I reckon when he twigged to her being a curry-muncher, he settled for another type of fur to rest his popadum in. He is not in the least racist regarding girlfriends, or picky about species either, as you’ve noted.

Think, Unfuck, how this one (or more) small sacrifice on your part will make the world a better place. You may even save money in the long run, when Grinning Greta powers the forge air draught with her knees pumping the bellows open and closed. If you won’t make that one little sacrifice, at least direct her to a certain hilltop lair in Alaska. Tell her that the local Sasquatch have been feasting on baby fur seals, driven there by rising sea levels, and an unscrupulous fur trapper is dealing in their hides.
