With its strength and relative light weight, sweet gum makes for an ideal walking staff and the Free Form Sweet Gum Walking Stick is carefully chosen, sanded, and finished to enhance the aesthetic beauty of this classic wood -- both collectors and avid hikers will be pleased to add this staff to their repertoire. When finished, each Free Form Sweet Gum Walking Stick is sprayed with a protective, clear coat lacquer, bringing out the wood's natural beauty. The Free Form Sweet Gum Walking Stick comes in one of four sizes: 41-inches (primarily a child's size"), 48-inches, 55-inches, and 58-inches. The staff also comes with a standard rubber ferrule for a firm, secure grip on virtually any surface. Like all of our handcrafted products, the Free Form Sweet Gum Walking Stick is made in the USA by our skilled craftsmen using the highest quality materials and time-tested methods.
