Yes it's amazing the difference between the two arts, you rarely see a wizard stick here. I just couldn't contemplate using a 2 " stick as virtually all my sticks require some slight straightening !Hello Black Thorn. I looked at your Facebook site. Very nice looking sticks. Hope you will share more here on the forum. i like the simplicity of the steamer. I think one of the reasons this yanks will use 1.5" to 2" diameter in hiking staffs is because of the carvings. It gives more options. I like the sticks you all do in the UK I have been learning from Cobalt. I am working on my first cardigan handle cane now.
I have not had a chance to work on the handles. Hopefully I will have time for them this weekend. Have had a few orders for Christmas projects and have been putting my time in the shop to work on them.Nice designs They work well on both a hiking pole and a walking stick or cane as you call them.
how's your cardigan handle coming on it looks interesting with the woods you have used.
