55" Free Form Sassafras with a spike ferrule.
This stick is a bit bowed, but stout & strong.
To be sure, determining the right size walking stick or can be a subjective art form. What feels right for one person may feel horrible for another. However, with almost two decades of experience in making handcrafted, wooden walking sticks and canes, you can be sure that we have some opinions on the matter!
Cane sizing is best achieved by standing up nice and straight, relaxing your arm naturally to the side, and having someone measure the distance from your wrist to the floor.
Again, let me reiterate, the sizing recommendations listed above are only suggestions. For people needing step-by-step support, it’s best to consult your doctor or another medical professional about your exact sizing needs.
I don't know how I hiked these many years without this! I guess a lot of scrambling on all fours up steep inclines and butt sliding down them. Using a really good walking stick is much more dignified. I came upon a large patch of acorns on a downward slope, they're like ball bearings! But my trusty stick kept me upright!
I discovered this in the bargen section. I'm guessing it was a return since it already has the spike installed. Maybe because of the slight bow? It looks more extreme in the photo than in real life. I think it looks charming and how can I resist something called sassafras?
