"Kebbie - a rough Scottish walking stick, similar to an Irish shillelagh, with a hooked head."
Wikipedia

A part of my ancestery is Scottish (Buchanan). In addition, geologists owe much of our foundation to those Scotts.

And so, some future stick must be named "Kebbie."

I'm trying to picture one and am drawing a blank. The hooked head is throwing me off I think.

I've seen this illustration before, as most here likely have. But it seemed worthy of posting or reposting.

"Detail from Frank Leslie's Illustrated Magazine, July 12, 1870, depicting a riot in Manhattan between Irish Catholic and Protestant Immigrants"
