I guess I should work on my Profile, huh? I'm in south central Arkansas. I live near and teach math at Fordyce, Ar. I live about a quarter mile from Moro Creek.... which is probably more of a slow moving bayou than a creek. It's where I collect most of my sticks.... in the "bottoms". Lots of American Hornbeam ( Ironwood) and Honeysuckle.... along with Sweetgum saplings. Thanks for the compliments on the knife handles.
I like that you found wood with natural handles. I've been looking, but finding those is harder than I thought it would be. I've found good handles, with no shaft, and good shafts with no natural handle. I've only been hunting sticks for three months or so, so I figure I'm due to find one soon.
