The Tourist cane is the original cane handle designed and used in the biblical days by sheep headers and was known as the shepherd's crook. Many handles have changed and developed over time but this handle was the only option available for centuries. The process to make this cane takes special skills because the wood must be heated up and bent into this crook shape with the use of steam. This must be done in a way to prevent the wood from breaking or splintering. One of the most popular reasons why people still use this classic cane design is because the handle can hang over a forearm or even on a pants pocket, when both hands need to be used.
