One word probably describes these canes the best: character. Our stick makers harvest these natural root creations from accessible roots of various hardwood trees using renewable, eco-friendly techniques. The hardwoods vary, but are often times sumac, hawthorne, or something similar. Each piece is different from the next, and our skilled craftsmen take care to make sure that each walking cane is properly sanded, smoothed, and protected with a clear coat of lacquer. The lacquer helps to bring out the wood’s intrinsic beauty and transforms a mere root into something you’ll be proud to call your own. The final result, as you can see, is a cane that only nature itself could fashion, and it's perfect for just about any occasion where a sturdy walking companion is preferred. All of our walking sticks and walking canes are handcrafted by our own craftsmen in Texas (Made in the USA!) using only the finest time-tested methods and woodworking tools.
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 cane is handcrafted by skilled local craftsmen.
All our canes can be personalized with laser engraving, making them uniquely yours. 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.
Showstopper at a modest price
The craftsmanship surpassed my expectations! The wood is very light and strong. I will be purchasing another walking cane soon!
great solid stick, will do the job, great service, prompt, interested and polite.
wanted a stick more like the photo, stick that arrived not like it much at all. I understand the difficulties with such a product.
however, not even near the same colour or straightness. Having said that, I like the stick and will use it :-)A
My cane arrived promptly. It was cut to the length that I requested, and has a bottom end that is at least 1" in diameter, also as I requested. It appears to be sturdy and serviceable for use as a cane. However, I had asked for hickory or oak, if possible. Evidently, though I am no hardwood expert, that request could not be satisfied. At least, it doesn't look like any hickory or oak that I have ever been told to be such. (But what do I know? I'm a geologist.) The handle is serviceably shaped and shows some nice "figure," but also some remaining "tool marks" that, I suppose, will probably disappear either with use or application of some 0000 steel wool. Most disappointing, however, is the lacquered (?) bark left on the remainder of the cane. It is an undistinguished gray-green, and covered with myriad little (1-2mm) oval "blisters" that run perpendicular to the cane's length. (Certainly not at all like the nicely lacquered finish shown in the pictures on the web page.) That's probably a hint as to what type of hardwood this is, but I guess that I will never know as the enclosed literature offered no explanation. I will use this cane, but I certainly won't enjoy it to the extent that I enjoy the distinctive oaken walking sticks that I ordered from Brazos Walking Sticks some years ago. As I said, "Serviceable, but undistinguished..."
I needed a stick intermediate between a longer staff and a cane, and this fills the bill perfectly. Solid, good feel. I recommend it highly.
Good example of the free form look. It's a straight as it needs to be for a good walking cane, while having enough deviations for that homemade rustic look. My first impression was that it's heavier than it actually turned out to be. Brazos trimmed it a couple of inches to be the right length for me, and it only weighs 13 ⅝ oz., but it's so thick and solid looking that you get the impression it must be more. With that solid looking shaft and the impressive thick knob on the end, this might look a bit too much like a weapon for some situations where people are paranoid about such things; luckily I've got some other canes as well.
Had been looking for a walking stick for a while as we moved to an area with coyotes and wanted something for protection if needed. This stick is great, has a large knob handle and I ordered an inlaid Star which adds a nice touch. I kind of wish the stick was a little straighter (it kind of bends up towards the handle) but I understand it's a natural product so they come like that. Very good service and shipping. thank you!
The root knob is very noble and distinctive, similar to an Irish Shillelagh (club). It is lightweight yet solid and strong. Well made, this 40 inch stick is perfect for me at 5'10''. The smooth knob is fine and my grip upon it is firm. If necessary, I can swing the knob-end at any man-eating squirrel or wild Sasquatch. Simply put, I like it.
Exactly what I wanted in a distinctive walking cane. And it shipped very quickly.
