This is a true recipe for Irish Potatoes! But see the below warning!!!

Irish Potato Recipe:
1/4 Cup of *Butter*
1/2 Cup Cream Cheese (8oz)
*Mix until smooth
Then Add
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract to
4 Cups of Confectioners Sugar
*Mix until smooth
Then Add
2 1/2 Cups of Flaked Coconut

You can also once again roll them in some Cinnamon before eating if you wish!

Never heard of a Samurai using a potato on his katana, but I do know that "Kono imo!" (You are a potato) is an insult in Japanese. Implies that one is a hayseed, a hick, clumsy, a klutz.

Do we have to explain everything?

And to expound, Irish is pronounced "airish." Either you get it, or you don't.

Their process involved beeswax I believe. But seeing as how they understood things like the carbon level in steel and how to fold steel, I wouldn't be surprised if they had their own version of an irish potato for a blade.
