I have seen quite a few shapes of walking stick handles so thought I would post a few pics here of some for comments
My personnel favourite is the cardigan shape with a water buffalo horn cap and collar along with a carving put on it.
But this is a subjective as with most things .I haven't included any rams horn sticks here
I do think the English rams horn walking / hiking poles are a better more refined stick and very highly prized here but its easy to understand why when you see them they take longer to make and highly polished with a exceptional transition fro topper to shank and well balanced
the first 4 photos are from" carving "Animals canes and walking sticks with power" by Frank C Russel .the same book as CV3 used for his elephant carving Pretty handy book for several project
5 photo a cardigan stick
Handles are only limited to our own imagination
the rest are just ideas I am plying around with and could easily be turned into a handle with a few modifications to shape and size
The females head is a knob stick its already carved but not mounted
I always enjoy seeing you drawings cobalt. Nice group of projects there. I also like the cardigan handle It looks good on a cane and feels good in the hand. It is not to difficult a project and you do not need a lot of tools. If your thinking about making a handle it is a good project.
