How to make a knife handle stick out from the chest?

I have bought two of the same knife, one with blade and the other without, just the handle so I can make it look plunged into the chest. Just wondering what technique to use to make it stick? Any suggestions?:huh:

insert something into the handle that you can bend sideways... then tape that to the shirt or body..

like if i wanted a pair of scissors to stick out, i would just bend the two blades to each side, and set them flat against the body with tape...

Nice idea. I jumped strait into my wardrobe and pulled a wire hanger. I straitened it to run up the body (under clothing Directorrik) and curved the end into the handle. Works really well. Can strap it to body via belts and duck tape (poor actor). Nice one!:D
 
My thought .. do 2 takes .. on w/ just the knife moving towards the body, then the 2nd w/ just the handle sticking out
How about filming someone pushing only the handle to the chest and then in post match move a photo of the knife blade to the handle? In that case you can even also show a slowmo of the action ;)
