Thumbs up Old Naga

Picked up this Naga dainty while just trying to keep my head down and get on with the garden. I am weak but can you blame me? Big heavy, I think it is actually an old one. I got it for a cricket term, even with missing tassles I think thats just okay. Old Naga sounds like a great beer.

VERY NICE AX WITH A BIT DIFFERENT BLADE SHAPE THAN IS USUALLY SEEN, LOOKS LIKE A GOOD OLD ONE TO ME. CONGRADULATIONS!!

I DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT CRICKET EXCEPT I LIKE THE BIG CLUB THEY USE. MUCH MORE DEADLY THAN OUR BASEBALL BAT, BUT STILL REMINDS OF ME OF THE DAYS OF THE CAVEMAN WITH HIS CLUB.

BE CARFUL USING THE WORDS OLD NAGA AS IF YOUR WIFE OVERHEARD YOU SAY IT AND THOUGHT YOU SAID OLD NAGGER SHE MIGHT USE THE AX ON YOU.

I may be off (some say I'm always a little off ) but I think this is a chieftain's piece based on the blade shape.

Nice piece, Tim.

Perhaps you could use it in the garden (to please the wife) ?

Old Naga really does sound a great name for beer! On my adventures through the year I always tried to find the most unusual names for beers locally...the winner was in Montana.."Moose Drool", with close second in Washington state with "Dead Guy Ale" !

Cheers!
