I made this after I saw a photo of an old German Hiking Stick covered with hiking badges. The style is originaly of a Eastern European Shepard’s Axe.
I used fallen Hornbeam tree that was about 3 inches in diameter and shaved it down for the stick. The Axe head was made by a local blacksmith and the ferrel came from and old broken hoe in my uncle’s shop.
