100 limited Ku-Bar Mugs that will be available at Tiki Oasis this year
and Here it is The Ku-Bar Mug!!!
Well,Me and fellow TCer MaiTai were chillin one night at FI talking about the Ku-bar Sculpt
And he Said It would be krazy Cool If we can get the Ku-Bar Mug to smoke out of the Eyes using dry Ice !!
I said, What a Great Idea!!! I'm glad I thought of that!!
Well, This is one of the most difficult Mugs for me to make because of the hollow chamber thats needed for dry ice, But it had to have it smoke out of its Eye's, there's no other Way!!
The mug looks awesome, Notch!!! Can't wait to see it up close and personal, especially with the dry ice smoke pourin' out of the eyes!

Yeah, he's not joking. My suggestion kind of opened a whole can of worms! You can't just make one single mold that forms the outside, plus an additional inside with the hollow chamber for the dry ice, all at once. And if you did, it would be virtually impossible to remove the freshly poured ceramic greenware from that mold without destroying it! Notch had to get creative, but that's kind of his middle name anyways. But now he's like the Leonardo da Vinci of mold making!
This has to be my all-time favorite new mug design in the last few years, if of all time! Maybe it means so much to me because I've helped lug the real KuBar all over the frikkin' place! Make sure to put one or two aside for me, my brotha!
