More wonderful work. Member cobalt has mentioned that leaving the bark on hazel is standard. Where I live, there is no bark even close in terms of pattern and smoothness, except on a few shrubs that are too small for stick making.

how did you form that snake to fit the shank?

Is it horn? I have cut and shaped rams horn initials to fit a shank but this is far more complicated and time consuming .

a work of art.. in shape and texture .

well designed

that is something unusual
