All of our ladies' canes are crafted by hand, one at a time, and this Maple/Walnut Handle and Spline Derby Walking Cane is no exception. The spline itself is a work of artistry, fitting perfectly into the upper part of the shaft, equaled only by our signature twist that spirals majestically down this walking cane. The classy derby handle is comfortable, contoured, and highly fashionable. All in all, this walking cane is both functional and highly attractive. The handle is attached to the shaft using a timeless mortise-and-tenon joint. This joint has been used by woodworkers for centuries, and it’s known for its strength and reliability. The shaft and handle are worked with a router and then sanded to smooth perfection. The final piece is sprayed with a protective coat of clear lacquer, designed to magnify the wood’s beauty.
