My latest tramping stick. The head is based on a medieval stone carving from a church. It looked simple but has many subtle complexities that I really admire the original craftsman for. I found it quite difficult and very time consuming to to reproduce. On the whole I am quite please with the outcome but need to do a couple of more just to come up to the standard of the ancient artist.
The stick is made of Lance Wood and is about 6 feet long. It is a lovely straight strong wood that is ideal for sticks like this.
