Wood rare and exotic also known as "King of canes" was the most commonly used material in making the cane shafts where the standard grip was rounded and metallic. Today, designer and collector canes have sterling silver handles, and are made with wooden shafts made from various woods, including Malacca and. Ornate designs, such as animal heads, skulls, and various emblems may also be carved into the wooden handles; these may make them harder to wield, but some find them more attractive.

The stem is not round, but has a ridge or spine, often called a "teardrop, " running along its length. It is very light-weight, yet strong, with no two specimens being alike. The stem is made up of links with joints or nodes at both ends like bamboo.The bark is strong, with what appears to be a satiny, natural gloss or surface glaze.
