I was at a festival in Indiana recently and saw a guy who was selling steer horns already cleaned and polished for $5. I couldn't pass that up. After a little thought, I came up with this cane.

The horn is hollow and slightly flexible, so I carved a piece of wood to fit inside it to give me something to glue the shaft tenon into.

Edit: The cane shafts I have been making are self made. I have one of those router-crafter jigs that Sears used to sell. It is adjustable for taper and has a index head. With a router installed with a straight cut bit, I make an eight sided tapered shaft for a cane.

Great looking piece. What fest did U find the steer horn at? I live in Indiana. A few years back before I got interested in stick making I saw a guy at the Feast of the Hunters Moon down on the Wabash selling cow horn. I assumed guys were buying them for black powder horns. Great idea to use as a handle.
