Default Pine Cones & Hidden Knife

The cast mini pine cones made an interesting handle for this hidden keyring knife. The stainless steel blade is sharp and sturdy so this is a functional albeit small knife...but it's "hidden"!

Beautiful! Are the pine cones stabilized? They really add to the beauty of the knife.

For some reason, the pine cones in the resin look like spiders to me!
Very nice job on the casting and turning.

How is the knife held in the handle when in knife mode?

Thanks everyone! The knife blade screws into the threaded coupler.

The kit came from Craft Supplies:

And I bought this blank before I began casting my own. The other half was used to make a coffee scoop. The blank came from Exotic Blanks:
