Default Tiny Cactus

I've been finding a use for this kit lately - the Tiny Giant/Editor. It takes such a thin blank - good for when you have a narrow piece of something that's too good to toss. I cast some cholla cactus recently and this piece was laying on the scrap heap for a few days, but it kept catching my eye... so decided to lengthen it a bit with a little faux turquoise and try it on an editor. I would need to post the cap to be comfortable writing with it, but seems like it would work nice in a pocket or purse. For size comparison, I threw a gear shift kit in next to it.

Great Pen Roy,
Splendid Blank, Expertly Cast, Turned, Fitted and Finished.
The Size Comparison to the Gear Change is Incredible.
I agree with you I think it would work well, for Pocket or Purse.
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?
