If there's anyone else in the CC community that would like to see these items, I'd encourage you to post to let Will know!

Yep, Josh is correct! In most of the injections, the Cimmerian PixAxe was overmolded onto a red-brown or black LEGO 4L bar. Will and I also did a few injections were no bar was inserted into the mold, resulting in a solid colored item. Here's one of the neater examples where different colored plastics were mixed together in the same injection for a "rusty" look:
However, it would be possible for an slide to be used to create a PickAxe head with open brackets into which a grippable bar could be slid, creating the same effect as with the overmolded items. Would this be something everyone would prefer to see, or would a solid PickAxe (same color axe head and handle) be acceptable?
