This is a waliking stick I made for a fellow up the street. Bobby is a member of the Cherokee Nation and a good guy who has had quite the run of bad luck lately so I hoped to lift his spirits a little with this gift. He loved it. It is made of an unknown wood. Yes, the copperhead skin is real. I think it is very unique. I liked it a bunch and briefly considered keeping it but didn’t. 8)

Maybe you brought some good spirits in with the gift, who knows, can’t hurt! I hate snakes so much this is almost creepy, the craftsmanship overcomes that feeling. But hey, it’s a good snake because it’s skinned and wrapped around a stick!!!! Nice work, keep it up.

I thought I found a stick like that in my wood pile out back – then it moved…

Beautiful work!

I’d have to shoot that if I saw it! Copperheads are my least favorite snake (and they really smell bad too). How did you get the stench out of the skin or does it still smell like a live copperhead?

Boy that is some kind of stink ain’t it! It did still have a little smell when I put it on but not as bad as when I first took it off. Of course it dried between taking it and then using it for this stick, it got real dry and stiff so guess what I had to do to get it to conform to the shape of the wood,soak it in water for about 15 or 20 minutes and that brought the smell right back. I am gonna guess that youu wouldn’t be able to smell it in a month or three. Thats just a guess though.

Very nice, and thoughtful. Where can a guy get one of those skins for my walking stick?
