Everyday Weapons by Chromly

A wrench and a pair of scissors are housed in leather holsters, putting them in a context of readiness for use as weapons; and a sling transforms a glass tumbler into a projectile. The leather apparatuses weaponize the objects without altering them.

I like how these everyday objects aren't changed but are put into a new context by adding the second leather material to paint them in a way to appear as weapons. The leather looks well crafted and together with the design, to me the items look like vintage weapons maybe used in an old village. The casings hold the objects perfectly, making them easy to wear.
