Looking at some pieces that are available and just wondered if it is something anyone here has used or come across on a walking stick?

I've used Honduran Mahogany and Luan (Philippine Mahogany).  Honduran is the good stuff and is slightly harder/more dense and a little darker than Luan. Luan is much more commonly available.

I believe they're actually from two entirely different families.  They just look similar.  Both work well.  I just prefer Honduran.

I haven't worked with Sapele but can't think of any reasons not to use it.
