Kraken Scepter top

This is a the top of brass scepter in the form of a very abstract kraken on a rod that is long enough that the scepter can be used as a cane. The kraken is 5 inches long; the rod is about 36 inches long, and is plain except at the top and a small section at the bottom.

All visible parts are solid brass. A threaded steel tube inside holds the kraken parts together, and a threaded steel rod inside holds the rod components together and connects them to the kraken. I can take it completely apart and put it together with my bare hands (very quickly), and swap various parts to change the design. The brass-enclosed steel core is strong enough to hold my weight when this is used as a cane, despite its thinness.

Showing this to people has produced interesting results. It's been described as looking like a tool, a weapon, a steampunk machine component....
