Photo shows the Bundu Basher Tip at the end of a cane. The tip is long and cylindrical, the same diameter as the cane, and is about 10 inches long. The first 4 inches extend straight from the end of the cane, then it bends about 45 degrees and continues for another 3 inches (this is the part that is horizontal to the ground). It then bends again and the last 3 inches is turned up at a 45-degree angle from the ground (shaped like a wide 'U' or like a hockey stick with its tip bent upward).
