But he better look out for the counter-attack device. Very deadly in the hands of an expert user.

This is where he gets all the cool stuff for the big night out.

No problem. I would be honoured if I can be half as good and fit as the lad in the loin cloth or cawat as it is locally known.

The Wa wa is "protecting" her honey pot. :-# So its a chalenge to tackle her.

I dont like the CH blowpipe. Too easy to make and handle. The blowpipe from Sarawak is made of belian or ironwood and it is always a challenge to find a straight one. It is heavy too.

I guess looking by the coordinates singawon proposed, he does not care about how straight is the pipe I guess. :mrgreen:

Anyway, if anyone has extra blowpipe and wants to exchange please buzz me.

Cheers.! :lol:

I have a couple, still wrapped up with the newspaper since 1993. :oops: I will display them when I get a display case of room for one.


Knowing brudder Singawon... that sings to a different "sexless" tube or tune if you will.... :mrgreen: he meant somewhat below the waistline leh... that is in a "berning" state whenever we get a WaWa posted here.... :rolleyes: :evil:

Waiting to view your display of those pipes you still have.... How heavy and long is the one you have brudder Bern?
