The Free Form Ironwood Walking Stick, also known as American Hornbeam, is a popular choice for those seeking an extremely strong stick coupled with a one-of-a-kind look and feel. Please note that it is common for ironwood sticks to have cracks, especially on the ends. These naturally formed cracks do not inhibit the stability of ironwood staffs in any way. Free Form Ironwood Walking Stick owners can feel confident that when walking through trails or hiking through dense forests, their ironwood staff will be an invaluable support that will offer reliability for years to come. Its bark -- resembling a deer antler -- is naturally ridged. The staff is carefully cut, sanded smoothly, and sprayed with a protective clear coat lacquer bringing out rich contrasts between darker areas (those deeper inside its ridges) and lighter areas of the bark. Like all of our handcrafted products, the Free Form Ironwood Walking Stick is made in the USA by our skilled craftsmen using the highest quality materials 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.
I’d contemplated having a walking staff for many years but took no action. Then I moved back to the Southwest. I now find myself walking and hiking desert trails several times a week. Having a walking staff to carry along made natural sense to me. I did my first serious internet search and discovered Brazos Walking Sticks. Three things immediately caught my attention. First, the many wonderful reviews at their website. Second, they made free-form rustic walking sticks. And third, they work with Ironwood. I received my first walking stick in early May, a 55” Ironwood Free-Form. The craftsman had been Ethan Mulkey. His work was nothing short of impeccable. The character of the stick. The rustic free-form nature of it. It felt good holding it. It felt natural, as it should. It was surprisingly light at 55”. And, its balance was amazing. I took it along on a couple of mid-day walks and it was perfect. Easy to handle. Easy to hold. And, it look fantastic. Then my wife and I went for a hike. She asked if she could try it out. The walking stick gave her great assistance with a bothersome knee. She fell in love with the stick. It’s been hers ever since. I received my second walking stick a few days ago, a 58” Ironwood Free-Form. The craftsman this time was Dylan McMahan. Also, impeccable craftsmanship. I couldn’t be more amazed or satisfied. This one was a little beefier at 58”. That was expected. The feel, balance, and character are still perfect. I could not be more satisfied with the craftsmanship and quick response time of Brazos Walking Sticks. I admire that Brazos gives credit to their craftsmen via the tag on the sticks. It’s a special pleasure for me to find small, private, family owned businesses that provide workmanship of the highest caliber and impeccable customer service. These are the sort of companies to whom I want to give my business. Brazos Walking Sticks has my strongest recommendation. Thank you.
The Ironwood Walking Stick I received is beautiful. It is finished very nicely and is a joy to use.
Just exactly what I wanted. Flawless workmanship and beautiful wood. This ironwood is durable and hard as a steel rod!
A good product at a fair price delivered in a timely manner.
I am a big man and recently have the need for a support while I am walking and getting up. Never owned a walking stick before, so did a little research on weight and strength of wood used to make walking sticks. Settled on the Brazos Iron wood stick and am very satisfied. Light but strong and the workmanship, excellent. Made the right decision and will be buying more walking sticks and I will always buy them from Brazos. Well done and thank you
I wasn't crazy about this stick when I first got it, but have warmed up to it since. I still prefer my hickory stick, but this is a nice addition. I use this stick when I go out. I've received 2 compliments so far. I used a wood conditioner/protectant on the stick and some of the bark (?) flaked off; not much but it causes me a wee bit of concern. There is a noticeable difference in weight between this stick and my hickory stick. (this one is lighter)
Excellent quality and workmanship. Very pleased.
High quality... timely delivery... will purchase more from Brazos... will recommend... nuff said.
The ironwood/hornbeam stick is perfect. Sturdy, durable but still light and comfortable. Good looking as welll.
