I've made and sold a few market sticks. I finally decided to make one for myself.
Here it is.

The handle I mentioned here before. It's white oak with a big knot in the top of the handle. It looks nice and adds a lot of character but if the handle is going to break, it will break there.
The shank is beaked hazel with a lot of grooves in it that look like old healed over wounds. I decided to make a feature of them and cut the top of the shank in the middle of a bunch of them then carved the spacer and handle to match. The spacer is holly.
I wouldn't be comfortable selling the cane with that knot but for my use it's fine and I like it.
I still have to cut it to length and fit the tip. I'm not in any rush.

Very well done! :thumbsu: :thumbsu: I like the look of the knot in the handle and with it being oak I doubt it will be an issue with breakage.

Like LilysDad said, great work on the collar. The way you textured it makes it look like the same piece of wood when it obviously isn't. Flows nicely from shank to spacer to handle.
