Pros and Cons of Hickory

Posted by Brazos Walking Sticks on 24th Sep 2012

So hickory is our best selling wood. We sell it by the truckload. Hickory moves faster than a cheetah on Christmas Eve*. With that said, people often want to know the pros and cons of hickory … so here goes nothing:


– Aesthetically pleasing. ‘Nuff said.

– Strong as an ox. It really doesn’t get any stronger than hickory.

– Your children’s children will use your hickory stick … they last forever.

– It’s available in abundance.

– Dense and formidable.

– It’s dense … therefore it’s a wee bit on the heavy side.

– It’s not really what we’d call edible. With enough marinade, though, it’s palatable.

– That’s it!

Hickory really is an ideal choice for either a walking stick or a walking cane. So browse are plethora of hickory products, and happy hiking.
