SMC Logo Ed's Kill Stick

This is a walking stick I made for my nephew who is an avid trapper. His wife asked me to make it for him to use trapping as he walks his trap line through woods and marshes. I had this piece of Lilac with a great head and forked end that would work well as club for killing his prey and to hold them down as he released his trap. I've found lilac to be an excellent wood to work with for sticks and canes. It finishes really well and If you're really lucky you might find some where the lilac coloring is present between the wood layers! So far I haven't been so lucky but a fellow I know in our community had some pieces that did and they were beautiful!
