    That's a bizzarre one.
    Rigi-Kulm= Swiss Alps.
    Where did you get the thing?
    Could be some sort of climbing cane/staff for the snow covered icey Alps, or just a walking stick. A lot of hiking trails there....but, it could also be a golf club for all that I know, lol.

    And, the hike from Rigi Scheidegg to Rigi Kulm:

    BLAH!

    We call this a "cherry-hook". It is used to pull tree branches closer to one, so that you can pick off the fruit. The region is known for its cherry schnaps.

    I'd guess it's a hiking staff from Rigi-Kulm with a Chamois horn (native to the area).






    Update - they are called "Alpenstock" Hiking staff with Chamois horn.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.
