Ceremonial Dagger

  • Dated: mid-19th Century
  • Culture: Italian

The dagger has a straight, double-edged blade, ribbed at the tip and with three deep grooves. The tang is slightly thickened, and almost the entire surface is engraved with floral motifs. It features a brass hilt picturing a skeleton wearing a tunic, while the guard features is a snake in-the-round. Comes together with a velvet-covered wooden sheath with brass mounts decorated with bas-relieved leaf patterns.

just because i don’t follow u back doesn’t mean i think u have a shitty blog. you might just have posts/fandoms/stuff i don’t really want on my dash. and hey, that’s fine. it’s YOUR tumblr you’re here for you and that’s goodgreatawesome.

but please don’t think me not following you back means i hate u 5ever and that u can never inbox me or reply to my posts or follow me on twitter or something b/c that is not what it means at all.

i would snuggle him but i’m a but far away (and would want to have him snap tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia first for the sake of my own kitties.) will you be keeping him?

((I think he may be microchipped, but the area around my house is notorious for having pets abandoned in it, especially cats. I do want to get him to a vet, but if push comes to shove I would like to keep him.))

augh, i hate that! *shakes fist at horrible, horrible humans who abandon their pets* if he’s microchipped, hopefully whoever chipped him is looking for him. if not, though… *wonders how to go about smiting from afar* i do hope you’re able to keep him, in that case!

both of our cats were abandoned — the older was found by a friend of ours, in a Cap’n Crunch box that was tossed out a window on the freeway. (our friend was FURIOUS. she figured someone was playing a stupid prank by throwing a box with a brick in it for someone to hit. NOPE.) the younger was not-so-accidentally abandoned by neighbors across the way from us when they moved and when we called to him after hearing him crying he RAN right across the street to us and climbed all over us and we swore we weren’t going to keep him and sterlingstorm had thought of a name before we were even seen by the vet.


oh crap, cooking without human supervision again! i should watch something good, like… the most messed up horror movies i own!

although, probably not. it might give the chicken ideas, and i do want this meal to be edible.

(but there will at least be fancy greens to go with leftover meatloaf, so it’s not a total loss.)
