Hardwoods-Padauk/Maple Walking Stick

Beautiful! But short (58") ... I still think a walking stick/staff should be 6' long. I want to be able to hold it with both hands held at shoulder height and just let it bear my weight for a minute or two when I stop... to think.


  1. I salvaged my walking stick from the burn pile. I lopped all the side branches off and now have a tool to ward off the dogs on my walks.

  2. Alas, our burn pile contains only peach and pear limbs. The occasional pecan limb, but they are fragile.

    But I did contact the Brazos Walking Stick company and they will build me a custom stick, a longer one (72") for a fairly reasonable price.
