This is my own personal cane that has seen many miles over the last 12 years or so. The stories it could tell and the things it has seen would make you crack up laughing and if I had a dollar for every person that has asked me the where I got it or if I would sell it to them .....I would be a rich man ! Short story ...Lost my left leg above knee in a motorcycle accident , Decided to carve a cane seeing I was sitting on my butt doing nothing for a bit and figured I would need it someday.
