This cane was made with an extra large handle and an extra thick shaft to match. It is a Harrison style handle that I designed to allow for a comfortable, sturdy grip and a finger catch. This is a left handed version but is still quite comfortable when used with the right hand. The handle is made from a beautiful piece of figured Lychee which is extremely dense and hard and the collar and shaft are made from a solid piece of vibrant colored Padouk. The dowel is cut as a single piece from the shaft, inserted through the collar and entire handle for superior strength.

My canes are all heftier than the normal store bought cane and this one is no acception. The collar diameter is approximately 1.75” and the bottom shaft diameter 1”. It weighs approximately 3.2 lbs and should provide the owner substantial support for many years and could be quite the lethal weapon if needed.

NOTE: This cane has been stolen from my client’s car. If you see this or know of it’s where abouts, please contact me so the proper action can be taken.

Meilie: A very beautiful cane. I like the visable tenon also.
