This is a large handled custom cane made for a tall man with a large hand. The handle is made from fancy feathered Claro Black Walnut, using the crotch cross grain, which is not as strong as using the long grain, so I added a 6” piece of threaded 1/4” steel rod in the handle for support. The collar is also Black Walnut. The shaft is Macawood (aka: Macacauba, Trebol, Christobol) and has a deep red/orange coloration. Even though this wood is being farmed in South America, I can not find more of this particular quality of wood, so will have to hunt for another hardwood that has somewhat similar characteristics. It is has a finer grain than Padouk and is denser and heavier, so this shaft has some weight to it. The bottom diameter is 1”. The handle is approximately 8” long.
