Oak is a high density wood giving it great strength and hardness, while at the same time having a consistent grain that absorbs a stain beautifully. Sticks made from oak in your stain color choice are among our bestselling products. Naturally, oak makes for a great walking stick! With the Twisted Oak Backpacker Hiking Stick we've taken our venerable Backpacker design and have made it out of oak. The combination is a proven design coupled with a bestselling wood, a surefire hit! So whether you're planning a rigorous trek across mountainous terrain or a leisurely stroll through lazy neighborhood pathways, the Oak Backpacker is a stick you can count on to last for years to come. All of our oak is meticulously chosen, cut, sanded, and prepared by our own craftsmen. Each piece is finished with a protective clear coat lacquer; the final product is a handcrafted beauty that's as functional as it is ornamental. Like all of our finely crafted walking sticks and canes, the Twisted Oak Backpacker Walking Stick is made in the USA by our skilled craftsmen using the highest quality oak wood and time-tested methods.
Unlike sterile, lifeless metal canes and poles, Brazos walking canes offer natural appeal because they are made from real wood. You can see the fine detail and beauty of the actual tree when you look at one. Each cane is a work of art. Plus, because they are solid wood, there are no moving parts to become unstable. Brazos Walking Sticks is family operated and located in the beautiful Brazos River Valley of Central Texas. Each walking stick is handcrafted by skilled local craftsmen.
All our hiking sticks can be personalized with laser engraving, making them uniquely yours. Walking sticks and canes can be further customized with accessories listed above, per your choice.

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.
Bought this 55” for my dad and did only a bit of test walking with it myself. Note that this one does not have a carved out area for gripping so it may be better for some who find the carved out areas in some of the Brazos sticks too narrow for their preference. Also, the user can find the precise height for comfortable gripping on this one and not be forced to use only the carved area which may or may not be the “just right” height. I would agree with others who have indicated this is a tad heavy, but not so much that a 180-200 pound person should find it unfriendly. The craftsmanship is excellent and I’ll take a bit of extra weight as part of the price of being extra sturdy and supportive — especially if one were to jab it strongly in one direction or another in the act of trying to break a sudden trip or fall. I now own three of the Brazos sticks and I will say that I like the looks of the hickory one I have where the spiraling shows a different, lighter coloration than the spiraling on this oak one. That color contrast makes it look a bit more rustic than the finely finished oak, but I knew this before purchase from the pictures. Maybe dad will use the “rustic” one for woods adventures and the other for use in more public places.
Everything I expected in quality and service. Communication of the order via email was fast and exact. Strong, light stick which will serve well for balance and, if needed, protection.
I'd like to return this walking stick and get one more like the hickory stick I also received.
An ABSOLUTELY beautiful work of art!!!
What a great Walking Stick. It arrived on time and in perfect condition. It is a beautiful, high end piece of work. This is my second Brazos walking stick, the first I gifted to a friend because I ordered to short. This 55" is the perfect height for me and I'm sure will assist me in my daily walks. Thank Brazos and Enrique!
I wanted a strong walking stick and this stick is made from oak and it also looks wonderful too. Really well made and sturdy.
The oak walking stick is just beautiful. Functional and sturdy. I am very happy.
I'm a fan of Brazos hiking sticks. This oak backpacker is beautiful and very strong. A great confidence builder for those of us with balance issues. I strongly recommend this for anyone who needs some extra help getting around or for the serious back country hiker.
Very very happy! The cane is really unbreakable, solid and beautyfull oak. Extremely elegant. I will recommend this company, Brazos, to all my friends. I am absolutely delighted. And I am a very picky customer when it comes to specialised things, like a cane for example. These comments burst out of my happyness. Not to forget the sturdiness, balance, and good grip. I like it so much I'll order a second set very doon.
