The Alpaca cane is the exception to the rule of the tourist cane as a simple cane that works well for most occasions and adorns House when he needs to step up his style and be a little more fashionable and present his best side.
The skull cane is a knob style cane handle that benefits those who need a light cane with support and works well as a leaning device.
