|Lets define Large and Massive (9037)|
Large or massive . I see canes at auction described as massive that I would only call large, yet neither have ever been defined. The Mexican cane on the right has a 2.5” shaft. A 2” shaft on the second from the right. The next two are 1.5”shafts and I think they still qualify as massive. The presentation on the left is 1.2”in diameter is large. Here is another dimension of this question. The largest presentation in the cane catalogs I’ve seen is 1”. Compared to the vast majority of presentation canes 1.2” is massive and was probably custom made. I have only seen one other presentation larger than this one. Lets see how many presentations there are out there more than 1”.
Lets summarize my opinion; 1”shaft doesn’t qualify as large. Over 1" qualifies as large and 1.5+ qualifies as massive. 2"+ handles qualify as large, and 3"+ as massive. What do you think?
