This is a sister cane to Custom Fancy Cane #110. The extraordinary grain of the Honduran Rosewood Burl is so beautiful by itself, that the shape of the cane needs to be as simple, yet comfortable and functional as possible. It doesn’t need any addtional carvings or embelishments, as I feel that would be too distracting. The client wanted a piece without any sapwood, which is quite rare to find in a piece of stock with the dimensions needed. The collar is Brazilian Ebony and you can see some unsual coloration which will soon darken to a deep chocolate brown/black. The shaft is solid Honduran Rosewood which makes for a very sturdy cane.
My goal is to provide a comfortable walking aid that is also sturdy and has a sense of style.
