Ockham's Straight Razor.

Numquam ponenda est pluritas sine necessitate.
"Entities are not to be multiplied without necessity."
A real straight razor with "Ockham" engraved on it. (Dremel & engraving bit and some creative set up. The little bugger is /sharp/.) This was made awhile ago, so it's not a recent creation.

Oops, forgot to toss this one up earlier: Know Thyself

"Know Thyself" pulled from Arkham Asylum inspired by Delphic inscription, popularly attributed to every Pre-Socratic Ever And Their Mothers.

Feb. 12 == Darwin Day

Inspired by Putting-Off-Studying-For-An-Evolution-Exam and QoW- Darwin Cartoon

Calvin and Hobbes!

It strikes me as a bad thing that I have to superglue and tape my cuts shut on my fingers. The two deeper cuts don't really hurt, but they're going to take awhile to heal. The really annoying cut is a much shallower cardboard-cut from, of all things, a microwavable-macaroni&cheese box. Oh the ignominy!
Despite these cuts, though, I have sucessfully finished (with ample aid from Trillian):


(There are two glasses, each etched with two images. The two Calvins are on the same glass, two Hobbes on the other.)

Shots IV: More philosophers

Hey, I have been doing stuff besides shot glasses. It's really hard to bring these things around, so my chainmail is still my portable anti-narcolepsy. (Turkish roundweave! Eee~)
(I'll be trying to get better photos someday.)
John Calvin & Thomas Hobbes (keep watching, I'm thinking of doing the cartoon Calvin & Hobbes on the reverse of these glasses!)

Locke & Rousseau

Shots of shots! Biohazard, pony, German Idealists!

Biohazard! Horse!

German Idealists! Hegel, Marx and Nietzsche.

Etched shot glasses! The squarish ones (Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche & the horse) are just under 2.5" tall and hold 2oz. The round one is 2.25" tall and is a 1.5 oz I think. The horse and biohazard are actually in pairs, but I only photographed one from each set. More eventually.
