Forged, as opposed to stock removal?

Skinners don't tend to have 10" blades.

Is this actually by Buck the knife company?

My bad, it's a drop point they labelled as a buck skinner but you are right about the size. Yeah it's actually forged, not stock removal, it's a Swedish person who's name has completely escaped me that makes them

Attempted to buy cat food - all online pet stores are basically out of stock on everything, and there was a queuing system in place to even access the Pets At Home site. I did manage to secure a couple of bags (Dex has to have special old man food and Neela is fussy because she's such a diva) but they can't deliver for...14 days!

So it will be whatever they can catch for themselves I guess. They won't starve.

The way things are going in today's world, I thought it was about time that Memento mori and Vanitas paintings made a comeback, so I bought this replica with an aim to use it as a model. It's cast from life (or death) but made of PVC. The top of the skull comes off as does the jawbone, which has a spring in case you want to do a spot of ventriloquism. Also comes with a handy chart with the names of all of the regions so I wont have to bother @EnolaGaia with daft anatomical questions.

That's very cool and it's my daughter's birthday in two weeks, she would love that.

Thanks David just ordered one. I was really struggling for ideas and so far had only got her a Family Guy's Death soft toy figure and Wolverine's dog tags.

Yeah, she's as weird as I am.

This is how parenting should work.... :twothumbs:

On the off chance that work might send me home (being paid to stay home all day and watch tv? Yes, please!), today I bought
The Re-Animator trilogy (Jeffery Combs can do no wrong)
Top Secret (Val Kilmers only decent movie, IMO)
Ajin Demi Human.

That's such a sad sight. I know it's not real but still.

Reminds me of that beautiful dissection of a child's skull with all the adult teeth exposed, ready to descend. Fascinating until you remember it's someone's actual deceased son or daughter. I was going to share the image some time but couldn't bring myself to.

Does walmart ship in the uk? I just ordered cat food and they took my money and promised it 4/3, which is fine with me.
