I originally posted this review at Amazon where I purchased it, but I want my next one to come direct from Brazos because they deserve it... Like others here, my expectations were minimal... As someone said, "It's just a STICK", right? But once I took a good look at it and held it in my hands, it became more than just a "stick". It is truly a fine work of craftsmanship. I don't care if it took the person who made it a few minutes, or a few days to finish it, this walking stick is a damn fine piece of work! It's got some weight to it, but it's not TOO heavy, so you know it's a young or "new" creation. It feels and sounds STRONG and flexes when you strike it on the ground, which means it's not going to snap in two the first time you need to fend off a charging Rotweiller or Meth-head. It's not as light as my short knob ash CANE, therefore not as fast, (it will require a bit of a change in training or tactics), but I very much like the fact that whatever kind of creature(s) I am confronting will be held at a much longer distance, giving me just a bit more reaction time. Since I'm getting older, that means more than it used to.
But the best part is that I can already feel that it will greatly benefit my posture after only a short walk! My short cane was good for support, especially when I get a bit dizzy after taking my BP meds, but it left my back sore because I tended to lean to one side when using the cane. This "staff", or "walking stick", forces me to walk much more upright and my back feels all the better for it! (I think I like the term "walking stick" since I consider a "staff" to be taller than I am, but I digress...)
Bottom line is that I could not have picked out a better "walking stick" myself, nor could I have made one this nice without going to a great deal of expense in time and effort. Well worth every penny! Well done, Brazos! I'll be back for more. These will make great gifts. You can't go wrong with something so well crafted and individually beautiful. Thanks!

I just had my second hip replacement and I bought this walking stick so that I could walk out on my uneven property. It's strong, attractive, and I'm having a great time with it. If only it would stop raining.

I am very pleased with this purchase, excellent shipping, well packaged, and a beautiful walking stick. I'm sure I will get many years of service.

I bought this stick as a birthday gift for my 83 year old sister. I have a Brazo walking stick which I love and I knew she'd love one also. I am 82 and use mine when I am walking my dog and gardening. Great for balance and defense if the need arises.

The first thing you notice (other than the excellent packaging) is the finish of the walking stick and the craftsmanship in putting all of the components together. I have had comments on mine since day one and couldn't have asked for a better choice in walking stick.

Beautifully made, extremely sturdy - I'm very pleased. Bought it because I'm sick of using a cane as I rehab from a hip replacement. I would like to see better instructions for walking with a single stick, however.

I purchased this as a gift as a goodbye/thank you gift for our Cub Scout Pack Cubmaster. It is a beautiful, high quality product. I added the free floating compass and engraving options. I am extremely impressed with the stick and cannot wait to give it to him. It really is exquisite.

I haven't had a chance to use the walking stick outside yet, but I know it will be a big hit. I love the way this hickory stick looks and feels. I especially like the quote that was engraved so beautifully! Very sturdy! I love my walking stick!

Purchased this walking stick and an Iron Bamboo stick from the bargain bin. They are both in excellent condition and work great.
Should provide stability and lots of use for a long time

I called and talked with a rep before buying online. Help received in sizing and selection was excellent. Ordered a free form hickory with a liquid filled compass - it arrived quickly and was packed very well. This stick feels solid in the hand and while walking. It does not feel heavy but 'solid', as I feel a stick should and much better than some of the metal poles I've tried. Besides, there is something wonderful about holding this stick of hickory as one walks. The liquid filled compass was mounted very well and fitted as if it belonged on the top. The compass rotates freely and does not appear to gimble with natural movement. Highly recommend Brazos for their products and service - will buy another from them quite soon.

Hickory is a strong, durable wood that is able to withstand the most strenuous conditions. Its unparalleled strength has made it a wood of choice for tool handles, bows, and baseball bats.
Our Free Form Hickory Walking Stick is made from carefully selected wood that is meticulously cut, sanded, and sprayed with a protective clear coat lacquer to bring out its natural beauty. The finished product is a walking stick that's durable, dependable, and strong. Whether you're trekking through miles of wooded terrain, or walking casually around your neighborhood, the Free Form Hickory Walking Stick is the perfect choice for those seeking timeless, rustic appeal coupled with legendary durability.
The Free Form Hickory Walking Stick can be customized with a quality, liquid-filled compass, and a spike ferrule or combination spike per your choice. The staff -- like all of our walking sticks and canes -- can also be personalized with laser engraving, decorative pewter stars, a Texas State Seal, and a thermometer. The Free Form Hickory Walking Stick comes in one of four sizes: 41-inches (primarily a child's size"), 48-inches, 55-inches, and 58-inches. The staff also comes with a standard rubber ferrule for a firm, secure grip on virtually any surface. For serious hiking, the rubber ferrule can also be upgraded to a spike ferrule or combination spike ferrule per your choice.
