I found/rescued this branch from the bottom of a brush pile alongside a 2-lane road one day this past summer. Once in hand I gave it my usual "test" by jabbing it into the ground. Unfortunately the rotted end broke off. However, because of the dramatic/distinctive markings and features along the shank I decided it was worth bringing home.

An oak branch was added to replace the broken tip.

It one of my all-time FAV canes.

Nope...I initially purchased them locally at a craft store - they are known as "doll heads" - made from maple and have a flat section with the center hole already drilled for the dowel screw. Fortunately I was able to find a better source on line.

Am now using the shanks themselves or portions from other branches as handles.

Which I prefer.
