Wood & Steel goes together
I love the combination of wood and steel on my sticks and clubs. some people are a little intimidated with combination by I find these two materials very complimentary .
steel being much heavy than wood can be used to place the weight where you want either for a comfortable use or being a more formidable self protection tool.
connecting wood and steel is not so easy as is order to secure them for years of use you need to a combination of gluing surface matching and pinning of some sort.
