Socketed thing that should not be of razors

I can only assume that this items label has not been replaced as it's clearly a description of the item rather than a name I think.

So is this a real item or is it a bug / easter egg?

    Should not be of razors, and yet is. C'mon, Thing, you had one job! – corsiKa Feb 9 '15 at 23:29
  • This is how all blue items are named. Only yellows have random names, and Legendaries of course are specifically named. – VanBuzzKill Feb 10 '15 at 0:30

    I've primarily been playing the WD and this item drops very often. At some point I had enough, and then this happened: eu.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/10700680844 – Jellezilla Feb 11 '15 at 10:16

It's a real item; the base item is the "Thing That Should Not Be"; that is, something that's unnatural or shouldn't exist in this world. Seems appropriate for a Witch Doctor.

If it helps, the name of your particular item can be parsed as:

  • Socketed (prefix; adds a socket)

  • Thing That Should Not Be (base name)

  • Of Razors (suffix; adds thorns property)

    What a brilliant naming convention! – David Yell Feb 9 '15 at 23:10
  • Some wonderful and hilarous names get built around the Thing That Should Not Be base :) – Flyto Feb 12 '15 at 10:10

That looks real to me. I've never played a witch doctor, but occasionally witch doctor items drop, and they generally have crazy names like this one.
