Rattan-wound Handles
Handmade spin/spin-casting grips using select hanks of rattan cane that is soaked in water,
flame-mottled in a random pattern, soaked again, then wound and laminated over select cork grips turned in shop.
When dry, a thread winding is placed between the segments followed by sealing the grip with
  (4-5) applications of marine polyurethane spar varnish to ensure maximum UV and moisture protection.
 Custom rattan grips provide a unique look and superior traction - wet or dry - for an improved tactile experience.
