After making the black footed falcon cane, I was looking at the part the falcon was standing on and came up with these.
Kind of ball and socket feel in the hand, very comfortable.
First, I made the smooth one, then got wild and free handed a twist in the second one, much better. Everyone calls them the mushroom canes, so there you go.
The wood is rosewood and walnut, with oak shafts.

Great looking sticks , I really like the twist I think it looks far better made by hand than by a machine , keep them coming.
