The Hundreds presents ‘Hobbies With Asa Akira’ : Blacksmithing

In the latest and last episode of this season of Hobbies With Asa Akira, the 2013 AVN performer of the year lends her petite frame to the hot and sweaty pastime of blacksmithing. Heading to Sword and the Stone in Burbank, California, Akira is taken under the wing of the affable Tony Swatton as he guides her through the entire process of making a lethal Hello Kitty dagger — from forging the steel and hammering the components into shape, to assembling the dagger and sharpening the blade.

The end result is a visibly shaken Akira and one of the most lethal interpretations of Sanrio’s popular feline-centered franchise so far. Catch up on the rest of the series over at The Hundreds’ website.

The Hundreds x Tapatio x Yardbird Hot Wings (Hong Kong)

Following from the release of The Hundreds x Tapatio hot sauce, Hong Kong’s Yardbird has worked up a special take on the traditional buffalo wings. Dubbed “The Hundreds Hot Wings,” the dish makes use of the sauce as a base, mixing in grounded sesame seeds, mirin, vinegar and melted butter in its seasoning. Mirroring The Hundreds and Tapatio’s LA heritage, the wings are served with red radish, picked carrot, cilantro and lime — in reminiscent of garnishes used in Southern California fast food cuisines.
As old fans of Tapatio, Yardbird founders Matt Abergel and Lindsay Jang have long used the hot sauce to enrich flavors, noting that the “great balance of smokiness, spice, and acidity” is just what’s needed for that extra touch.
