CANE MASTER'S CANES:
Available in Hickory, Oak, Walnut, Golden Wood or Cherry. (See wood description below)
All Canes are 36 inches to 37 1/2 inches unless otherwise noted.
Longer canes are available in Hickory or Oak for an additional £15.
Canes made of Cherry are an additional £15.
All canes come with a rubber tip unless otherwise indecated.
FULL DIMENTION CANES:
All canes in this catagory have a round shaft 1 inch to 1/8 inch diameter, and as such are our strongest "Sticks". It must be noted that as material is taken away from the cane, it will lose some of its integral strength.
The shafts of these canes have been reduced by about 1/3 of the size of our full dimention stock, and therefore are not as strong. but, they are still stronger than any drug store cane. With the edges that have been created, they are great for working preasure points!!!!!
Limited Addition Canes
Long Canes, Sticks and Staffs:.
Woods used in the making of Canes
1 Pure Hickory Heart:
A naturally occurring dark pigmentation of the hickory tree that comes from the centre, or "Heart" of the tree. The colour can range from a dark honey to a rich mahogany.
2 Hickory hard wood:
As the term would suggest, this is a combination of the light hickory and hardwood. Mother Nature does a magnificent job of mixing the colours.
This is one of our "standard" woods. It is a fine quallity grained, dense American hardwood, typically "Bone" in colour with occasional streaks of "Heart" wood.
We use "White" Oak, which is usually a dark Khaki in colour after it is soaked in mineral oil. The grain is more pronounced and open than hickory but, we would rate them both as our strongest wood.
5 Golden Wood:
Harvested from the high forests of Asia, this golden Hued wood is light in weight but still very strong. Great for those that want lightening quickness and durability.
A very lighweight chocolate coloured wood: that can have some light coloured streaks running up and down the grain. It is not what you would consider a "Combat Grade" wood, but works quite well in tournament cane, as it's lighter weight facilitates quicker spins and twirls.
Our lightest and softest wood, cherry has an interesting grain that contains some interesting swirls of orange, not unlike a lighter coloured Hickory Heart wood. Once again, we do not consider Cherry to be a true "Combat Grade" Material!!!!!!
HIGH GLOSS FINISH:
Remember that on any Cane order you can request a High Gloss Finish. We'll apply 6 coats of Tung Oil, sanding lightly between each layer. Only £40 Additional.
WE MAKE CANES UP TO 60 INCHES LONG
