Inspired by Pauls hiking cane that he showed in the video, I made this design.
The vertical grip is used for walking.
The handle below the grip is not intended to be used as a regular cane. It’s a bit too high for that. I added it to grip around it from behind to drag myself up while climbing. It is also nice to lean against while resting.
The hook at the top serves two functions. First as the left hand grip when using the cane two handed, for instance when crossing a stream or very rough terrain. Also it can be used as a hook to fetch ropes or high branches.
It is made of ash. I will add a metal spike it the bottom, and make it water tight some how. So far I have only given it a single coat of shellac.
