From the Klingon chef K’ulia K’uck, famous for such dishes as TRIBBLE tartar and TRIBBLE kabobs, come KLINGON BAT’LETH earrings. Based on the Klingon bat’leth:
The bat’leth is the Klingon long sword, designed by martial arts enthusiast and Star Trek: The Next Generation effects producer Dan Curry. The bat’leth is a curved blade with spiked protrusions and handholds along the middle of the blade’s back. In battle, the handholds are used to twirl and spin the blade rapidly.
Klingon oral history holds that the first bat’leth was forged around 625 A.D. by Kahless, who dropped a lock of his hair into the lava from the Kri’stak Volcano, then plunged the fiery lock into the lake of Lursor and twisted it to form a blade. After forging the weapon, he used it to defeat the tyrant Molor, and in doing so united the Klingon homeworld. This first bat’leth was known as the Sword of Kahless and was stolen by the invading Hur’q; an episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine revolves around an effort to recover the Sword of Kahless. The name bat’leth itself means “Sword of Honor” in Klingon. (from Wikipedia)
These KLINGON BAT’LETH earrings are just shy of 1½ inches long (including the ear-wires), and perfect for all your TRIBBLE skinning/cooking needs.
The charms were designed in California, cast with lead- and nickel-free pewter in Texas, and turned into beautiful earrings in Oregon. These are fabulously made in the USA from start to finish! Ear-wires are silver-plated over surgical steel, nickel-free, and safe for most humans’ sensitive ears.
