I made this cane a year ago after knee surgery. It has worked well. The handle is a Disston, copied from a 100 year old rip hand saw I have. I’ve always liked its grip hence why I copied it.
My problem is I couldn’t come up with ideas to finish it out. Do I incise cuts like the Disston handle it mimics or do I carve anything more fanciful? Any ideas what to carve otherwise?
I intend a transition band between the brazilian cherry and mahogany possibly of ebony. As for the tip the cane has a black rubber bumper. I have brass tips but am not sure to introduce brass. So you can see why it’s sat for the last six months. I invite all ideas.
Edited; I added the Disston inspiration for this handle.
