ALERT: (March 22, 2013) This cane has been recently STOLEN from my client. If you see of know of any information about this cane or the other two canes posted below (#073 and #086) please contact me.
This is not my usual style of cane making, but I was trying to get a rush replacement for a client who had both of his custom ergonomic canes that I had made for him previously, STOLEN from his car. It’s a sad day when someone who doesn’t need to use a cane feels they should break into a person’s car to steal from another who needs to use a walking aide.
The handle is made of Lychee which is very hard and usually has some interesting grain pattern. This one is subtle, not quite as dynamic as the fiddleback pattern in the original cane I made. The collar is Padauk and shaft is made of solid Purpleheart, so the cane is quite sturdy.
Here are the original canes made that have been STOLEN. If you happen to see them anywhere please notify me so I can alert my client who would love to have them back.
