I've seen this circle/anchor type symbol all over the place, just wondering how valid it is? did someone here fabricate it or was it from an actual BR source or something?

The one that appears on the money? or the one on O-B's certificate of authenticity for the JWB bottle?

hey loyal, yep the blue one on the money. Whitefall uses it in alot of his stuff. I've also seen it used on some older dope sheet mock ups too. I'm guessing this could be made up as I've not seen it on anything official.

That's a really good question.
I found in an old text of "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" where it say's "Shimato" so I went with it. Then the other night I was watching BR and I clearly heard the Blimp ad say "Shimago"...I had originally thought it was Shimano but Andy pointed it out and he was right, I didn't want people to think I was selling bicycles.

yep they do good gears Wink

and then there's the certificate saying "dominguez shimata" Laughing

I think it's best to go with shimato if thats what the man wrote.

What about Shimano fishing reels? Smile

I will take a look at my scripts when I get back home to see if there ever was an intentional name, or if it was just made up on the spot.
