Or........... cut in and then burned? What kind of wood? Not easy to keep such a consistent spacing, I imagine.

Engraved then burnt, and I'm sorry I can't remember what wood it is, Mayne it will be easier to work out when I have put some finish on to bring out the grain

Do you mean at the top of the handle? i did that with a chisel and a LOT of sanding. There was already a small dead stick there that was easy to clean out and that left that groove so that was more the reason for the groove than a design on my part

So I believe that this stick was wrapped by a vine, yet not enough to twist it like Stixmans snake carvings of twisted sticks. Just enough to leave the grooves, as they are NOT regular (machine made).

EdChads just found a true work of nature. Kudos to him for recognizing it, harvesting it, and making a walking stick out of it! The "small dead stick" was the remnants of the vine that used that sapling to get to the sun. They must have lived at least a year together, maybe two, for those grooves to appear in the tree.
