This exhibition quality cane will be handmade from scratch for you! The pictured piece features Black Palm "wood" which is actually a very dense species of grass with a very unique appearance. We can make it exactly as shown or choose from an infinite number of wood combinations for something truly unique.
During use your index finger wraps comfortably underneath the "beak". Designed to imply motion and flight, the handle is poised slightly forward in relation to the shaft. Therefore, the weight bearing portion of the handle is directly over the shaft, giving the piece a very stable feel. This is a signature design of mine and is very comfortable to use.
Please allow 2-3 weeks for your custom ordered cane to be crafted. Let us know your desired cane height when ordering.

All of our canes and walking sticks are designed and handmade by Shawn Gillis, an artist and woodworker who considers each piece he creates to be his "functional art." We seek out and choose to work with top quality woods from all over the world that are all sustainably harvested. Each cane is designed with durability, comfort, and style in mind so that you can enjoy using your unique piece every day for years to come. Each handle is joined to its shaft with a sturdy metal bolt that provides strength. Our canes are all completed with a glossy finish that provides protection and a smooth feel to the wood.

Here are our instructions for determining your proper cane height:
1. Stand comfortably erect with your hands at your sides, with your shoes on.
2. Have a helper measure the distance from the floor to the bottom of your forearm/top of wrist of whichever hand you wish to hold the cane with. (You may need assistance with the measurement so as to avoid disrupting an ideal posture.)
This method will allow for an ideal amount of bend in your arm. Too much, or too little bend in your arm can cause posture issues and muscle aches.
