The Bocote/Maple Turned Knob Walking Cane is truly a functional work of art. Its handcrafted maple shaft is a perfect compliment to its handcrafted bocote knob. Its elegant look makes it perfect for formal events, yet it is highly functional and fit for any occasion. Each piece of bocote and maple is carefully chosen, selected, cut, and sanded. Finally, each piece is sprayed with a protective clear coat lacquer to magnify the wood's beauty. For a firm, secure fit, the knob handle is permanently affixed to the shaft using a combination of epoxy and a dowel rod. Each shaft is given our signature twist that spirals majestically down the cane shaft. Each cane comes with a standard rubber ferrule for a firm, secure grip on virtually any surface. Like all of our staffs and canes, the Bocote/Maple Turned Knob Walking Cane is handcrafted in the USA using the highest quality wood and time-tested methods.
