Red and yellow twist decorative walking stick Red and yellow twist decorative walking stick

This stick is one of two I had carved, then left sit for several years.
This one and the blue flame stick.
I don't know what I was thinking. Bored probably and just wanted to carve something and grabbed a marginal piece of wood to play with.
After I finished the carving, I realized these sticks had too much of a curve to them. Combined with being very thin, they are NOT strong at all.
They would not pass my strength test. In fact, put much pressure on these and they will likely snap.

That being said, I got tired of them being in my way and finally decided to just paint them up.
Now I have tried using both, and if you just want something cool, perhaps for a little extra balance, or to test a trail before stepping into muck,
this stick would work fine. It's not like it's so fragile you can't use it. Just don't count on putting any weight on it at all.
I did add a light cord on the handle. It's a nice light weight stick of medium hight.
Some people collect sticks as decorative pieces. For that use, this one would be a great addition.
I've included shots of this stick from all sides. You can see the bend in it.

Painted with artist grade acrylics and given several coats of gloss sealer.

Thin, medium hight, NOT strong. Mostly decorative or use for a little extra balance.
