Shillelagh Style Walking Canes, all different sizes! All canes do not look like the one pictured above, styles may vary!
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.
A good stout stick - alas not Blackthorn - with a generous size grip. Very easy on my arthritic hand while still providing plenty of support for my 300 pounds.
