I received a bundle of Diamond Willow sticks (from Alaska!) Dec 2015 and finished Cane #100 in April 2016. I used a walnut "Derby" style handle because I liked the way it felt even before the assembly began.

But once that day arrived, using a dowel screw I tightened it down and turned it to the exact spot where my right index finger would fall into that natural opening in the Diamond Willow shank. I don't remember that day every time I use the cane but quite frequently that happens. And I'm glad I had the sense enough to keep working at it until I got the handle in the correct position.

There are times when things go right.

And the end result is glorious.

I guess the answer is patience.

Not one of my best virtues nor gifts, I'm told.

The end.

My index finger likes to point down the stick too. It's important for it to have a nice resting place. One of those little details that add greatly to the comfort of a cane.
