The handle got broken off of this cane that belongs to a friend o mine. I drilled out the old piece that was broken (thnks to a very helpful LJ), and while turning the ball/handle, I turned a tenon to fit the drilled hole. It is a piece of Maple, and stained with Generals Candlelight wood stain, and 3 coats o clear from a spray can. It’s not a very good match, but, it looks ok. If you look closely at the brass rings/bandings, there is a button there. When pushed, you can weild a nice little sword that is built into the handle and disquised in the cane. Very kool. Thnx in advance for looks/critics, etc… Feels good ta git back out in the shop.. :)

Nice repair Roger. I wondered if the brass rings concealed a sharp surprise. Indeed, it does. The cane looks to have some age on it. About how old is it?

With the sword in the cane you can rival Zatoichi. Neat cane… and good job rebuilding.

thnx again guys. Doug: I’m not sure the age. My buddy is always swappin/traddin, etc.. You know how that goes. Plus, he lives bout 400 miles from me. Weapons and whatnots, etc. It’s pretty unique. I looked closely, and you can tell the carvings are a bit rough, but, still very kool. I’ve still got to put a rubber tip on the end of it. I’m gonna git one either tomorrow or so. I wanna git this back up to him. Thnx for the comment/s. And yup, you were right… :)
