The picture is of the cane nobs.. mid manufacture.. not painted or finished.. I just posted it to give you a preview of what the shape of the knob of the cane is going to be. They were cast off of a REAL brass knob.. and there is NO SEAM running over the top of the knob.. in fact.. on many of them, there is hardly any sign of a seam at all! I found a GREAT way to minimize any casting lines... a feat I'm particularly proud of! It was a problem with the last edition that I finally found a way to fix!
However.. they're still SUPER LIGHT.. average weight is just 58 grams.. that's only a fraction over 2 ounces... the Creekmore canes were over 6 ounces...
Even with the lack of breaking in half.. I still think these will be BY FAR the best looking and most practical dancing canes EVER on the market!
