Y- handle hiking stick made from found wood . I think ‘ovr da pond there’ these are refered to as a ‘market stick’ , where you can rest your crossed arms in the Y while you haggle over the price of a Smithwick’s. I make a taller version that can be used as a shooting stick [for those black powder guys]. This stick uses mule deer antler for the handle and nanny bush for the shaft. The spacer is spruce and the bottom is brass tipped.

Wood – Nanny Bush
Handle – Mule Deer Antler
Brass Tipped
Spacer – Spruce

Thank you for interest.
