There is not a dedicated forum for us who make canes or walking sticks, but I am sure there are a few who enjoy lumberJocks other than myself.
Where to put the cane?
If you use a cane, you understand the question. When you’re out to dinner or at a table in a house or coffee shop there is not a cane rack some were nearby. A crook handle you can hang on the back of some chairs. But often it ends up on the floor. You can hold in your lap, but it is always slipping. Having used a cane for a while now I have found that I prefer the shape handle generally referred to as a Derby handle. But I still had the issue where to put the D_ m thing. This was my solution. I do this with all the canes I make. My handles are about 1 1/8th diameter at the back of the handle were it often tapers to a point I flared it out. It could be called a fish tale. Allowing the cane to hang on the edge of a table with the shaft tuck under. Being right-handed I hang it on the left and I do not have to hold it in my lap or hang it on a chair or go looking for it when I am done. It solved a lot of issues. I though this might be helpful to one of you.

Since my March foot surgery, I’m finally off the cane- at least for now. Arthritis is relentless and progressive. I have an adjustable aluminum cane, which I put on a table as you have shown. I’ve used it on and off for over 20 years. It has some sort of elastomer on it that gives it enough friction to keep it from sliding off the table. Nowhere near as elegant as yours, though.
