Kwila Truncheon


I had a piece of kwila about 400mm long, and I wanted to give myself some practice using the skew chisel, so i made a truncheon. I have no use for a truncheon, but now I have one anyway. Maybe I can use it for Victorian Policeman cosplay or something.

I believe that actual Victorian police truncheons were made from lignum vitae, which is exceptionally hard and heavy, but my desire for authenticity doesn't go as far as shelling out an arm and a leg for an expensive wood like that, so kwila will just have to do.
