#piratesunday : MKBarzandBullion’s Hand Poured 2 Troy oz Silver Fang Skull Hex bar

”Blackbirds tend to like shiny things.” ~ The Bloody Raven

In keeping with my little ‘Fangs’ theme with the ‘Chronicles of the Bloody Raven’ this bar is an ideal piece in my collection of the Bloody Raven. And if you don’t know by now I tend to stay close to dark themes. It wasn’t easy to get out of Lone Wolf habits and get more social outside the circle of dark and gloomy friends that will have to move on. A long story, so back to the silver.

Previous Gothic themed silver;

Do Vampires fear Silver?
Nemesis & the Pic of Destiny
Gothic Styled Silver BCB Fangs

The Fang Collection
All 0.999 Fine Silver

For today it will be a favorite from my MKBarz pirate chest, the 2 troy oz. Fang Skull Hex Bar. The Vampire Skull is right up my alley and can be an ideal conversational piece in ether the Pirate or Gothic genre.

And like many poured silver products the finish was intentionally rough with just enough polishing to clean up yet maintain its delightful crude finish. No ‘Airtite’ capsules for this baby and I love the feel of it in my hands.

You know, this would look pretty Badass with the Crossbones added!

The Treasure Chest

And speaking of ‘Airtite’ capsules, I’d better mention this little beauty of a chest since I am have run out of space in the community Booty Bank and has become far too heavy being packed with my poured silver collection.

This was such a lovely Spanish styled chest I had to get to store all my MKBarz products in with plenty of space for further acquisitions. The steel bands are mere embellishments as the fancy caps that gives my hands a little extra gripping feature as this chest could get quite heavy as I filled it to the top to test its capacity.

MKBarz still has the smooth wooden chest version emblazoned with the Jolly Roger available in stock but I do not know if they will restock this version anytime soon.

Then there is one other Fang…..

For those new to me, I own a Katana named “Fang” and as time permits I like to practice Iaido, a martial arts discipline under Kenjutsu specifically the Art of the Draw.

It is analogous to those western genre movies. “This town ain’t big enough for the both of us now Draw,” demanded the man in the Black Hat. As goes a gunfight between two or more Gun-Slingers that have a disagreement.

The Discipline encompasses much from its Bushido and Shinto Buddhist Influences. It is beautifully wrapped up in ritual, honor, conduct of a samurai and his or her world view in addition to actual rigid exercise of combat against your imaginary foe.

The ultimate goal of Iaido is; to Win the match without drawing the sword.

My ‘Fang’ is usually at arm’s reach as I write

And of course I use it as a letter opener at times.

I love that 2 troy oz. Fang Skull Hex Bar. MK Barz has all the coolest designs of skulls and pirate silver ... very you, sis @kerrislravenhill! I just love, LOVE your collection of hand-poured silver! Stack on, sis. I am so impressed with your stack... a true inspiration for me to stay the course (my course!).
Have a wonderful weekend, sis, take care 🥰🌺🤙and a million Hugs and Kisses 🤗💕💋!

It's the Poured Silver version of Stackitis Sis, I'm so willing to endure high premiums over spot, the effort to read reams of IG posts, watch hours of YT Pouring Videos, collect thousands of Pop can deposits to pay for it. I know I'm hooked when I see those little hearts floating around a Silver Pour picture, that epic music begins to play....
And the sound and feeling of my heart breaking as I see "SOLD!"
I am SO my own worst patient.
Always with love, 🌺 💝 🌹 💓 🌸

That hex is nasty-good! I really like that one KLR!

Every Stacker has their own style, thanks for your comment @summertooth

Nice piece you have there. I have to agree with you; it looks good the way it is. It might actually look funny if it were all shiny. Thanks for sharing! Have a lovely evening @kerrislravenhll!😊

Individual preference and style, that seems to be the Poured Silver community Motto to get away from the mass produced silver products into the almost made to order silver products. (I'm eyeing a 4 oz Dracula Bar on IG at this time, save it for a Halloween post) Nothing wrong with the shiny finish version. "Sometimes I like it as if it were freshly pried out the clutches of a dead corpse!" ~ The Bloody Raven

Awesome! I like the shiny but am also enjoying the different tonings and textures that I am seeing.🤗😎👍

I watched so many samurai movies starring Toshiro Mifune...
