Brazos™ Free Form Ironwood Walking Stick

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.

Made in America, One at a Time

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.

Make it Uniquely Yours

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.

100/100 Guarantee

Buy with confidence with our Lifetime Warranty against defects and our 100/100 Satisfaction Guarantee. If you're not 100 percent satisfied, return your stick within 100 days for a full refund of the price of the stick, or exchange your stick for a low flat fee of only $10 plus shipping.

So buy confidently!

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!

Walking Sticks

  • For small children and shorter adults, we generally recommend a 41-inch stick.
  • For people who are shorter than 5’4″, we recommend a 48-inch stick.
  • For people who are between 5’4″ and 5’11”, we recommend a 55-inch stick.
  • For adults over 5’11”, we recommend a 58-inch stick.

Walking Canes

  • For people who are shorter than 5’4″, we recommend a our lighter 34-inch canes
  • For people who are between 5’4″ and 6’, we recommend our standard 37-inch canes as the best starting point.
  • For adults over 6’, we offer 40-inch canes.

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.

    Iron Wood walking stick

    Posted by Ken on 18th Feb 2019

    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

    Took Me Awhile to Warm Up to This One

    Posted by Kurt on 15th Jul 2018

    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)

    Would be great, but....

    Posted by Trevor on 23rd Jan 2017

    This item would be perfect except the one I received was too crooked. I have a few Brazos freeform sticks, and expect a little natural variation. Still, the top and bottom need to align for a comfortable stick, and this one does not.

    Great stick, bad incising

    Posted by Dan K. on 16th Dec 2016

    I've bought several walking sticks from Brazos over the years and been very pleased. This one was nice as well--the ironwood is beautiful-- but the incised text left a lot to be desired, as it carried beyond the "scraped" area and was in very small type. Very disappointed, especially since this was a Christmas gift.

    Ironwood walking stick

    Posted by Joel on 30th Nov 2016

    Just received it and haven't used it much yet but already it has developed a minor crack across the top. I did see that this might happen. I just hope it doesn't get worse.

    this stick here

    Posted by Unknown on 4th Jul 2016

    I'm glad it has the rubber thingie on one end, because that helps me remember which is the top! When I walk down the street everyone stops me and says, whoa that's not an ironwood stick, is it and when I tell them it is they all say yeah I thought so. I use it for both regular and mountain walking. Although I am too scared to go in the woods by my house. It is really much more than just a stick, it's more like... I mean it is kind of like... well actually no, it is just a stick.
