This is a custom cane made for a client who likes a little twist in her life! She wanted a cane that provided comfort, stability and a lot of unique character that would show off the grain of the wood. The multi-colored grain of Cocobolo appealed to her and the more subtle and finer grain of the Honduran Rosewood complimented the richness of this vibrant wood.
The shaping of the handle was made to give ample surface to rest the palm and allow more of the user’s weight to be placed without pinching the hand. The faux twisty stick technique allowed more grain pattern to show up with the constant change of angles in the wood of the shaft. She travels frequently and chose a special silver ferrel with slender rubber tip for a more sophisticated look “to walk through the streets of Paris”.
I’m sure she will get a few glances as this cane is quite organic in shape and it even looks a bit vintage with deep rich brown tones in the woods.
