If you read the Crogan Adventures books (or listen to the radio show) you'll find that one object pops up again and again - a carved dagger first owned by the pirate Catfoot Crogan and passed down through the subsequent generations. Owned and used by Catfoot, David, Jonathon, Will, Geoffrey, Matthew, Joseph, Robert, and Daniel, as well as a few of their associates, the dagger has an octopus carved into the handle.
Now YOU can own the same knife - or a replica of it, at least. 18" long, and made of a plastic resin, it's hand-cast by the fine folks at Redline Toys from a sculpt made by me. Each one is hand-painted. And though it looks like a knife, it's safe for kids to have (though, like anything else, they could probably injure themselves if they use it improperly), and it's safe for use as part of a costume. While the handle and stand are rigid, the blade is moderately flexible.
And while you might want it for play, or a costume, you may be the sort of person (like me) who prefers to have such things displayed on your bookshelf or mantle. Don't worry. You're in luck. We've got a lovely stand for it to sit atop.
So here's the deal. Each one of these has to be handmade. So we're taking preorders right now!
Folks who are going to HeroesCon can pick up theirs at the show!
