This is a big handled cane for a tall person, although it can be cut down to size for the “less tall” person. The handle is a Harrison style that we designed to enable the user a firm grip and ample palm rest area so you don’t pinch your hand when applying your weight on your hand. The finger catch also gives a sense of stability to prevent hand slippage and better leverage when walking, as you can swing the cane forward with greater ease with the secure grip.

The figured Koa handle is 6.25” Long, 1.75” wide at the exposed tenon, narrowing to 1” at the area for the baby finger. The collar is made of Black Walnut and the shaft of Cherry which allows the cane to be light despite it’s heftier measurements. Created by Michael Hodnett.
