The hard part is going to be getting the alligator to sit still for it.

I'm excited to be building my inventory of suitable sticks in a variety of sizes, shapes, and species. My goal is to get enough that I can pick and choose from a variety to suit my intentions instead of having to bend my intentions to fit what's available.

There are several handles I want to make starting with a good Cardigan handle. I'm also going to keep my eyes open for some suitable antler, horn and bone materials to work with.

Also on the to-do list is casting my own ferrules and collars out of pewter.

I'm also interested in using alternative materials for shanks. That might be a little trickier. Not a lot of suitable plants like yucca or palm around here.

That should be enough to keep me busy.
