    Had a client of European heritage that wanted a Ciupaga shepherd's walking stick/axe crafted.
    The head is made of polished stainless steel welded and forged into the shape and then polished.
    Made the handle out of hickory wood and applied some Lichtenberg designs as requested by the client.
    I still need to install the rubber tip on the bottom that has a rubber foot that screws off to expose a stainless
    steel spike. As Doug Marcaida would say.......It will kill.

    I would feel a lot safer using it as a cane than as an axe. :D

    That will get some stares when he carries it into Walmart.
