The craftsmanship is amazing from all angle's...
Sturdy, Solid, Oak Grain patterns are fantastic (you couldn't draw the grain patterns any better).
1000% better than the cheap metal adjustable canes I had to replace every yr or so.
This is a lifetime product, based on my judgment to date.
The only thing I've had to get use to is where & how I place my cane when I'm sitting down. Its a smooth fantastic finish on the handle & shaft. Plus because its solid oak its heavier than the hollow thin metal adjustable canes. Multiple times I placed cane against a wall or bathroom counter, it slid and tipped over onto the floor.
My daughter has marble tiles in her home, I was worried that the handle coming down onto the tile would break it. Small adjustment to have to make for such a great solid cane. Just have to be conscious of what your leaning it against & at what angle its at. I found if you keep the tip about 6 to 8 inches away from the wall etc & angle it so the handle is leaning up against something so the handle or top of the cane won't move.
Very Satisfied with purchase.
