    I can tie flies that work, but they're not art.

    You've got a talent.

    Beautiful knives, but I have to ask... is that Afghani Lapis Lazuli?

    That's ok, I plan to use Mammoth tooth in the future which is also gonna stir up a few misguided peeps. I haven't ruled out Alaskan Walrus penis bone which can be legally purchased from natives, other makers have used it.

    That's a switchblade, but instead of pushing a button, you rub it a few times and pops up.

    The Afghan Lapis Lazuli is legal though? Why would people not like that, Bream? Is it somehow tied up in the opioid trade?

    Thank you! It's completely legal, you can buy it everywhere like any other gemstone or mineral that's commonly or commercially mined and sold. I think he was referring to people who think we invade middle eastern countries for their natural resources since most Lapis comes from that region.
