This is an extra large handle and tall cane designed and fabricated by my husband, Michael. He used a nice piece of Cocobolo for the Harrison style handle and turned a piece of Purpleheart to fit into the handle creating a visible tenon for ultimate strength. The additional pieces of Padauk, Osage Orange and Cocobolo are also turned with a hidden tenon (dowel) also providing superior stength in each section. The handle is 7.5 inches long and very comfortable, especially if you have a large hand and need to put a lot of weight on your cane when walking. I assisted in the finishing and photography techniques. Another handsome piece for our inventory.
