This is a tall cane made with some extra fancy Honduran Rosewood burl that has some beautiful swirls of chocolate grain that dance through the handle. The handle is approximately 5.5” long and is reinforced with a metal rod because the thin part is partially short grained. The collar is of Brazilian Ebony and the shaft is made of Honduran Rosewood.

This is an elegant cane that can be easily worn to an evening event or special occassion, but can also be enjoyed for daily use.

Makes me want to reach out and touch it. Nature sure has a way of building things, that grain is wonderful to look at.
