One of my favorite pieces to date. An ominous and striking dagger, topped with a brass skull. It’s originally intended use or reason for manufacture is unknown, as the only clue we are given to its origin is “Made in Germany” on it’s blade and scabbard. While researching it I’ve found similar daggers and crossed claims that it is either fraternal or military, neither of these sitings seem true as it is most likely a “collectors blade” one could purchase out of the back of a 50s men’s magazine. Still badass as hell though.
Christmas is still some weeks away but I was so impressed with this tastefully adorned deer skull, designed by our own Jayme Stout, I couldn’t wait to share. This smaller sized skull is crowned with with holly and pine cones giving it a warm, old world presence. Hopefully Jayme will make more, in view of this one having sold. :(
This game is bad ass, it’s used symbolism includes: Shrunken Heads, snakes, Zombies, Spiders, voodoo dolls, cauldrons and of course the great Mystic Skull who’s power includes the ability to contact the great beyond. Super kitschy early 60s fun with wacky supernatural flare. $45.
