    Looks like something you'd find the dwarves carrying around during their long journey.

    The ceramic has the appearance of metal pounded with a hammer along with a rough painting of gold around the edges. The gold having been slathered on in uneven layers with an unsteady hand and left to rest with wavering lines. Which looks pretty good, even after about a year of having it it hasn't chipped or been damages much.

    The notes are solid as far as I can tell only a tad airy at the highest note sometimes. I love the sound of this ocarina, its v nice!

    Axe ocarina impressions

    I have had this ocarina for a year now and it's ended up being the one I play most.
    The paint job can only be described as hideous; some kind of cheap acrylicky gold paint unevenly slapped on, that starts wearing off almost at once and you end up being happy it does because it actually looks less awful that way and matte black pain where the brush stokes are partly visible and there's a clear mark in the paint where it's rested against the table while drying.

    That being said, the underlying ceramic is solid and the mouth piece is properly glazed. The ocarina has an unusually beautiful earthy sound if your vibrato technique is on point and the more than usually curved hole row of the right hand and the pinky hole in particular puts less strain on your pinky than most ocarinas.
    The fact that it looks the way it does has also meant that I am less worried about taking it out with me because scratches and wear really only improve the look of this one.
