This is a fancy cane made for a young lady who is in need of some support for lengthy walks. Since she is of medium build I did not want to over burden her with a heavy cane, but should she need to put more of her weight on it for future needs, I wanted to make sure she had something sturdy for a lifetime of use. The handle is made of Amboyna burl with a nice figure and tight grain. This wood is fun to work with as even though it’s quite dense it carves nicely and it has a lovely fragrance. The collar is made from Brazilian Ebony which tends to have a dark mustard color when freshly cut, but in time it oxidizes to a deep chocolate brown/black. The shaft is made of solid Padauk. It is a substantial size cane that can be used by a lady or gentleman.
