Brazos™ Lee Valley Spike

The Lee Valley Spike is our top-of-the-line spike option. It features a brass construction with an interchangeable rubber ferrule and metal spike tip. The Lee Valley Spike includes a heavy-duty rubber tip (with fixing screws) for everyday use and a brass tip that can be interchanged with the rubber tip for additional grip when stream wading or mountaineering.

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 walking 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!

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.

    Great hiking tip for a great hiking staff

    Posted by JimH on 21st Jan 2020

    Been using this tip for over 6 years. Looks a little worn, but still gets the job done on water crossings and on ice.

    The tips are easy to switch out, even though I haven't had a chance to us the spike yet.

    Walking tip

    Posted by Douglas Stewart on 6th Aug 2019

    This installed quite easily on walking stick I made for myself out of native TX persimmon (our own version of ebony). I had to do some custom whittling to adjust the end to fit but it worked out very well.

    Pricey but classy

    Posted by Winter Camper on 31st Jul 2018

    I purchased three Brazos walking sticks earlier this month and I debated on whether or not to pull the trigger on this more expensive tip (versus the Brazos tip) to install on one of the sticks. The three walking sticks are all similar in color and are either oak or hickory but the one with this tip installed looks like it’s in a different league altogether! While the rubber tip has less contact area than the standard, non-metallic tips installed as the default tip for the walking sticks, it doubles the wow factor when you’re seen walking with it. Also, I’m hoping my dad is able to make use of the pointed metal tip when the upper midwest winters come rolling in with their notorious icy spots on the sidewalks and parking lots. The Brazos craftsman that installed the tip (no extra charge) did an exceptional job of fitting and installing. If you order one of these, I would go ahead and order a couple of extra rubber tips to save on future shipping costs. I’m guessing these may wear more quickly than than the standard chair leg type tips that are otherwise standard on walking sticks.

    Over Priced

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Dec 2016

    Lee Valley is the best available. However, your price of $56 is way too high, considering that anyone can go to the Lee Valley website and purchase exactly the same product for $22. Your markup is excessive. Too much trouble to return, however.
