It looks like you capped the ends with wood, is that also Purpleheart? What is the wood in the center of the two dark rings on the collar, it looks like a burl of some sort. Nicely done, as I like how you tapered the collar to join the width of the handle and shaft together.

Thanks Sarg! I was meaning to comment from the start on this cane. Just never did. Sorry.

I think you made a real smart looking cane. Nice clean look, great details, beautiful wood. Nice project, right up my alley. Cool man….............
