0014 Hand Carved Wildlife Canes or Custom Canes - Rick's canes are carved in the tradition of great masters - one at a time.
The animals shown in the pictures are of Rick's custom pieces of art. His caricatures are both fun and functional. These will definitely be a conversation starter.
Rocky Mountain Juniper grows in North America, in areas with dry rocky or sandy soil. Because it is slow growing, pieces that are two to three inches in diameter are well over 100 years old. These pieces are more than just a cane, they are history. For this reason, the Artist uses naturally dried wood to create our canes and hikers. Aboriginal peoples used this wood for making bows, clubs, and spoons.
All of Ricks creations, are oiled rather than lacquered. An oiled wood provides protection against fading while allowing the wood to breathe. You can use Brazilian Rosewood Oil once a year to maintain your cane if required. **Rosewood oil is sold as a product called Penofin. Web search "Penofin" to find a local suppler. In Canada, Windsor Plywood stocks this product.
Perfect for gift giving, one of a kind artwork by Rick!
