This is a very tall cane with a large handle made for a gentleman who is over 6” tall. When I first met him he was using an adjustable aluminum cane that was obviously too short for his stature. He admitted that he was having back, leg, shoulder and arm pain because he had to lean over to reach and lean on it. The aluminum cane was also quite flimsy and he did not have much stability leaning his full weight on it. The height of this cane is 41” tall and the handle is approximately 6.5” long with specific curves to catch his fingers as he has limited sensation in the last two fingers from nerve damage so he can’t feel if his hand is slipping off. I created the front short end to have a groove to allow him to grip around it with his thumb and index finger and a wide palm surface so he can lean on his hand without pinching it against the handle.
The handle is made of solid blonde Mesquite and the shaft is made of solid Cherry.
