Ceremonial dagger with light-green jade hilt
- Dated: 17th century (hilt)
- Culture: Indian, Mughal
- Measurements: L: 40.3 cm
Daggers of this type, inlaid with gold and with rubies and emeralds set in gold, were made for the ruling upper class. The cut-and-thrust weapons of high-ranking Indian officials, and especially their daggers, were embellished with great imagination with precious stones, enamel, and – as here – with entire hilts made of carved semi-precious stones. Knives of this kind were considered jewelry for men and were often used as princely gifts.

Happy Mother’s Day, from AJ Lee and Big E Langston on Twitter.
Ooh! I like this idea. I’ll bring it up to people I know and maybe we can get something together for MAGFest, if we don’t have a fuckton of panels already.
Naked Episode 50 is a go. But, you have a long time to that as I only have 16 episodes including the one being released tonight. At least, Fool’s Gold episodes. What will I review? No idea, but I’ll think of something I’m sure.
As for Pre-Code, the movies I picked are picked and under wraps. Deal with it.
First, there should be a new episode out today. After that, the return an old character, I hesitate to say favorite.
So far on the list: Hard Guy, The Iron Petticoat, Thor and the Amazon Woman, a few Golden Swans, a few crossovers, Pre-Code month, and Dr. No, not necessarily in that order.
Scheduling is extremely difficult at the moment because my editor works 24/7. But hopefully, we can get 3 episodes out by the end of May.
A LOT. I have so many plans for July, which will be my Pre-Code month forever. I plan to do an intro/explanation of Pre-Code for those who don’t know the ins and outs of it, then I will review 3 movies, ever year in July that are Pre-Code and explain why they are categorized as such.
Platforms: XBox 360, Nintendo 3DS, PC, Sega Genesis, Nintendo 64
