Topic: davie cane

Hello all.  Does anyone know what the situation is with davie cane.  I recently learned that they had gone out of buisness.  Is this true???  Since I'm only ordering cane about once a year, it's hard to keep track of these things.  I was really happy with their source for tube cane, and if someone is continuing to sell it, I would love to know.

Thanks

Barry,
I was very happy with their cane as well -- great stuff if you ask me. I have tried to contact them twice and both times they said they had lost their source of cane, or something of the sort, and wouldn't be getting any more anytime soon. It is sad since it was great cane. It sounds as if they are gone.

Re: davie cane

Argentinian cane from the (apparently now defunct) Davie company came from this place:

       http://www.argendonax.com.ar/index.asp

There's a lot of links there to various sites that might still have access to the cane.

If anyone locates a place that sells the Argendonax cane, please post it here, as it is indeeed very nice cane!

There's some really interesting pictures of the cane fields in Argentenia at this link:

I've recently purchased some very nice GSP Argentine cane from Robert Williams in Detroit. He also has Australian cane.

That's Gonzalez cane from Mendoza, Argentina. I've become this year an official Gonzalez cane (oboe, E. horn and bassoon cane) distributor for North America.
E-mail me if interested.
Thank you!
