Here is a page that describes how to
make fire handsticks.
Here are some various ideas that I have tried with different types of
devilsticks and handsticks. Some of these are recent ideas, some I have
had around for years, and some are items I've made to play around with
other people's ideas.
For a long time I have thought about different items that could be used
in a devilstick routine. I always thought that doing devilstick with
a tennis raquet, broom, juggling club, etc. was always a bit cheesy. There
have only been a couple ideas which I have seen that I thought were actually
pretty cool. One of them was the excellently themed and executed umbrella
devilstick routine by Steve Ragatz).
The other was the
devil's triangle by Seth Golub. So I started thinking rather than
replacing the devilstick with something why not do something with the
handsticks. So here are some ideas around that theme.
Here is my set of 3 section handsticks that I made from
Golub's original idea. I connected mine with some rope which worked
fairly well, but didn't allow much twisting of the sticks.

A list of people (in alphabetical order) I have run across on the
net who are interested in, or perform with the devilstick.
