The Extra Size Straight Hitchhiker Walking Stick is a stout walking companion that's fashioned from a solid piece of oak. While not a heavy stick, the Extra Size Straight Hitchhiker is robust, making it an ideal staff for hard-core hikers who tend to put their walking sticks through strenuous conditions. Incidentally, ash is the wood-of-choice for making baseball bats, thanks to its renowned strength-to-weight ratio. After each piece of ash is carefully chosen, prepared, cut, and sanded, each staff is then beautifully stained in one of three colors -- brown, red, and tan -- magnifying the wood's beautiful grain patterns. Finally, every stick is sprayed with a protective clear coat lacquer. The result is a smooth finish that highlights the wood's intrinsic beauty. The finished staff is a one-of-a-kind, handcrafted walking stick that is both sturdy and attractive. This staff comes in one of three sizes: 48-inches, 55-inches, and 58-inches. The Extra Size Straight Hitchhiker Walking Stick comes with a standard rubber ferrule for a firm, secure grip on virtually any surface. Like all of our finely crafted walking sticks and canes, the Extra Size Straight Hitchhiker Walking Stick is made in the USA by our skilled craftsmen using the highest quality wood and time-tested methods.
