The Nettleship's cane handles are not manufactured.
They are made by human hands, formed inside
jigs, one at a time.
If an judge wants to arbitrarily reject them, and call them
'manufactured', well, that's the judge's prerogative.
I would, however, like to see the judge try to actually
use some of those 'gutsy' handles.
