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.
This is my third ironwood walking stick, its lightweight, great looking, and very sturdy,great job!
Nice stick, nice finish. just added a paracord wrap. Can't go wrong with Brazos.
Just got two of the freeform ironwood sticks. Not only sturdy but amazingly beautiful -- grammy will be able to use these on dress-up days as well as her normal jeans.
I purchased this light strong handsome walking stick for an older cousin. He loved it. It is perfect strong and sturdy but light enough for an older person to handle easily. I also have a Brazos walking stick that I use for all my walking exercise. No more sore knees!
I have hiked and backpacked all over the Mountain States and hike my local mountains 2-3 times a week. For high alpine trips with a heavy pack I prefer trekking poles. For everything else I much prefer a wooden walking stick. This is a piece of art. I have looked at several different kinds of wood. The ironwood has so much character, is strong and relatively lightweight. I have used it several times already and am very pleased. I bought my wife a hickory free form and can't wait to get a hawthorn. Thanks Brazos!
Very well crafted, attractive. Wouldn't be without one now that I've had it. Much more versatile and less dangerous than canes and walkers. Depending upon your personal circumstances, it can also be a very formidable weapon.
Liked the weight and feel of the stick. Good craftsmanship.
I love the color variation in the wood. It's lightweight enough that I can hike with it all day yet strong enough that I'm not worried about it breaking. The engraving that I got was totally worth the extra cash. The only issues that I have with the one that I got is that there are tool marks near the top (looks like someone had started a cut, didn't finish it and then just left to be glazed over). The engraving was great but I ended up filling it with a wood putty and then putting a clear varnish over it in order to make the lettering seem stronger (it was "Old English" style and that just seems fragile)
I love this hiking stick. It feels very sturdy and strong yet lightweight enough that you can walk for hours and not have your arms or hands feel tired. The finish is also comfortable in your hand.
I use it for hiking and also all day use for balance problems and RA.
