Good to see you posting again Alador. Really neat stick, You spent some serious time carving that one.

Nice looking piece Alador. Never thought to try Autumn Olive as a walking stick. Around our area the State Forester has put Autumn Olive on the invasive species hit list. So cutting it down for stick material would not be frowned upon on our state forests lands.

Wow! Cool stick! Reminds me of a Roman fasces.

Is the coloring at the top stain or scorching?
Yeah, the bundled-stick look was what I was going for. The color is all my usual leather stain. I didn't get exactly what I was going for with the stain but it is what it is.

Really I find it to be good, it carves pretty easily, steam straightens well, and works pretty well with bark on or off. Oh, and it grows like a weed. I used to cut it down, now I just groom it to grow sticks.
