I just have a for love diamond willow you never know just what you will find under the bark. [what is Diamond willow ?] If you can find a old dead piece you just can’t lose with it. And should you find a piece of DW just in a early stage of rot all the outer sap wood rots first [and easily cleaned out] leaving behind the hard, heart wood intact. It can be straightened easily, and is ok to carve on. I find while shaping it , the diamonds [growths] are always different and present different challenges. Aswell I don’t try to hide tell tale signs of insects. The handle is antler from a White Tailed Deer tine [or a point] mounted to the shaft. This cane has a leather hanging strap and the bottom is brass tipped. Sold
