Great looking knuckle holder for kids.

Or for nuts in the off time that the kids are good. :>)

I don’t know how efficient it is but it really looks cool nonetheless. I’d like to make one if I had the tools and the knowledge to cut threads. I get a steady supply of pecans from my dads tree (every 2 out of 3 yrs)
