Ishmael, yesterday I was training with the baton you machined for me from that bristlecone pine and also my T-cane, when it occurred to me, that at my dignified age, I should possess a pimp cane. I have trained with a pimp cane that has long since been taken by some wannabe reprobate when I left it at a dojo.
Could you make me a pimp cane of whole grain with a knob fashioned from the same live wood? I would keep it forever by my side, like Conan's broadsword.
It shall be named by our readers, I think, perhaps in a contest for a free copy of Magic Dindus & White Devil.
I am looking for a somewhat longer version than the cane depicted in the hands of Rudy Ray Moore in Petey Wheatstraw, The Devil's Son-in-Law, at the link below.
James how about this?
This one looks like a femur, smack a fellow simian on the skull with that knob!
Ishmael, this would be nice, but, I want it to have less taper [to be just as thick] toward the end where the rubber knob will be—as it must function as a cane too—and with a knobbed stick I will not use the knob as a club end, but rather as a pummel to slash with it like a sword. Legally I don't want to use the knob to stroke with. Besides, I don't need it to break bones. I would use the knob to break a window to facilitate my dramatic escape from a place of ill-repute or to free a ho in distress from the back seat of a pink, '54 Cadillac, not to spatter brains like some barbarian.
