"Carved for YOUR Hand ?"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Ms. Evelyn has Outdone herself with This Creation ! I feel as if I?m taking a favorite piece of artwork with ?? whenever I reach for this cane, which is always. It provides a great balance as your hand is messaged by the neck of the bird. The wood is Super Smooth and as the neck curves one end is a tad higher than the other giving you an ergonomic option ?. I have both the darker one (245424) & lighter (245425). A lot of substantially coated carving that?s a Pleasure to use.
