i could polish it, and wrap it for the sheer fun of it, if BB would do the paintwork, and make the tsuka for me. lol

(fun is fun... but i aint doing any real manual labour. lol)

aye... candy pink wrap, make the saya look like a pink and white candy cane. a plain tsuba with hearts carved into it. silver with pink detailing.

(i actually have a plain tsuba i could modify, come to think of it. but id need to get it chromed, or plated.)

fittings would be the real problem. seppa can be modified, menuki can be made easily.... the Fuchi, and Kashira would be the hardest thing to make up. but i guess i could try, if we really wanted to do it.

well... you got a point Lex... maybe we could add some pink to the bag, and red saya ito to the sword. ill enamel one of my dusters for ya as well, bright pink with crystals in the knuckles... make sure you have the designer "paris hilton death kit"

and i wouldnt worry who would buy it. id do my end for free, and you can sell ANYTHING on ebay.... tell everyone it used to belong to Mrs Claus for self defence as santa was a drunk, and violent with it.

failing that... market it as the "Paris Hilton Death Kit" and thirty thousand 17yr old girls will bid for it.

BB... can you carve "thats hot" onto the blade? cus we could get more for it, than a masamune, if you could.

you, young lass, are a star. we can also drill out some indents, and place in some pink crystals.

im happy to have a go at it. its a disgustingly, awefully, gut wrenchingly fantastic idea.
