Made in the USA
Our wooden walking sticks for hiking are handcrafted from the finest native and exotic woods, including oak, walnut, mesquite, sassafras, hickory, sweet gum, iron bamboo, and dozens more. Most of our wood walking sticks are naturally harvested all the way from the nearby woods of eastern Texas, all the way to the Appalachian Mountains of upstate New York.
Before each walking stick is made, the raw wood blank is carefully inspected for hidden flaws that might affect the structural integrity of the shaft. Only the raw blanks that show the highest strength are chosen for use in the best hiking and walking sticks. After the structural inspection, the raw wood blank is shaped on a lathe or a sander depending on the style of the stick. Most of our wooden walking sticks for hiking have handles shaped directly from the wood blank. Others, like the Shepherd’s Crook, are steamed and slowly bent to take on a distinctive crook shape.
After it's shaped and sanded, the wooden walking stick is ready for the finish. Depending on the style of walking stick, a clear or tinted finish is applied. The resulting finish highlights the natural beauty of the wood. The best hiking and walking sticks come in various sizes that will fit young children to tall adults. Serious hikers might like our traveler's hiking stick that can be taken apart, or our fitness walkers for use as trekking poles.
Our wooden walking and hiking sticks can be customized with walking stick accessories and laser engraving. We offer a wide range of accessories, including compasses, whistles, medallions, ferrules, and the state-of-the-art Lee Valley Spike system. Make your walking stick uniquely yours with a laser engraving of your name, phone number, or your favorite quote or Scripture verse.

Reasons to Personalize your Walking Stick
As an item that’s uniquely yours, having a wood walking stick customized with the additions and options listed above makes it personal. The strong varieties of wood used in construction will deliver confidence in use -- but it’s the engravings and medallion inserts that will be the talk of the town. If there’s a military veteran in your family, having a medallion inserted into the grip of the wooden walking stick showing the branch of service will send a message. Similarly, giving the best hiking sticks as a gift to someone who wants to begin regular exercise has proven to be a popular choice. To make this present one that’s going to stand out, have this wood walking stick engraved with birth dates or other personal messages. Not only will this show that much thought was put into the gift, but it will be impossible to get this walking stick mixed up with anyone else’s wooden walking sticks.
