"You are in love with intelligence, until it frightens you. For your ideas are terrifying and your hearts are faint. Your acts of pity and cruelty are absurd, committed with no calm, as if they were irresistible. Finally, you fear blood more and more. Blood and time."

The Wisdom of the Ages

Free at Last!

I have just sent away - and received intel upon its receipt - that it is "horrible"- the last Phil Collins Bowie that ever I shall make.
I expect it to be returning home soon and it will be available at a discount.

The Musso Bowie.
Named for its famous owner, Joe Musso.
Former owner that is. It's since been purchased by a more famous and even more clueless "collector" and "history buff", Phil Collins.
Yeah, that Phil Collins.
For me, the Bullshit Bowie has been a cash cow and pain in the butt ever since I was first asked to make one.
First off: Everyone wants it to be "authentic". Just like the one that alcoholic, slave trader Jim carried - while being slaughtered in his sickbed at the heroic "suicide by Mexico" AKA the Alamo.
It's bullshit. Not even period.
Best estimates - from people who aren't looking for a clueless Brit rock star to sell it to - Made in the '20's.
So, recent purchaser can grudgingly hang onto it as the last of a line of... fifty? Or he can send it back so someone else can be be the proud owner of the last Plowshare Forge, Phil Collins Bowie.
Just so there's no hard feelings: Awesome cover of The Supremes.
