I like this a LOT. Is the handle epoxied on? Did you hand carve the handle, or is it glass from another vessel? It also looks like you cut the glass bottle to fit, a very neat idea. Lots of imagination, not too much work, very saleable.

Thank you all for the comments.
@Roman, Like the slogan, with your permission I’ll make it my LJ signature ;)
@Paul, The handle is hand carved and glued the bottle was cut to fit.
@Jim, I had to cut a few mango trees in my back paddock as the bloody possums chew their bark and kill them.
