Claude Le Blanc is an expert in woodworking, with 20 years of experience in the art. For the past 4 years, Claude has turned his attention toward crafting beautiful wooden sticks of all varieties, including ornate chopsticks, hair pins, canes, walking sticks and fighting sticks for martial arts. All of Claude’s products are crafted using both domestic and exotic woods from South America, Africa, and Australia. Perhaps the most striking of all the wood varieties Claude uses in his work is “purpleheart”, which is a rich shade of eggplant. Nature is Claude’s muse and he often finds crafting materials – such as shedded antler – while walking through the woods.
