    A plumb bob can be an ornamental tool.

    Made this for a friend. 10+ inches long, ~6lbs, bronze, brass,rosewood and stainless steel.

    That plumb bob looks really nice schor. I would store it in a display case than in a toolbox. Too pretty to use. Thanks for the helpful video.

    I made this for a friend and I am pretty sure it will be hanging in his shop and never actually used for its purpose.

    I have to say, the EDC part of my mind saw that as a defensive tool disguised as a plumb bob. Very nice indeed!

    Thanks

    I know it looks like something else, I did this totally without any pplans, just some materials I had, it just ended up looking like it did.

    I would say an offensive tool sometimes also, it slipped in my hand and my other had went to grab it and it stuck 1/2" into my palm, it only slipped maybe 2". The stainless tip is as sharp as a pin and it weights around 6lb.

    Ouch! That's a weapon, that's for sure. But it really is a great piece of work. The TLC is evident.
