Serious hikers and casual walkers alike praise the Twisted Sweet Gum Walking Stick for its strength, versatility, and beauty. This distinctive hardwood, with its darkish bark and grain, is an ideal walking aid for trekking through both neighborhoods and wooded trails. Like all of our twisted sticks, the aesthetic appeal of the Twisted Sweet Gum Walking Stick is accented by our trademark twist that spirals down its shaft. Every piece of sweet gum is meticulously chosen, prepared, cut, and sanded, giving it our distinctive twist. Finally, each stick is sprayed with a protective clear coat lacquer -- the result is a smooth finish that magnifies the wood's innate beauty. The finished staff is a one-of-a-kind, handcrafted walking stick that is both sturdy and attractive.The Twisted 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 finely crafted walking sticks and canes, the Twisted Sweet Gum Walking Stick is made in the USA by our skilled craftsmen using the highest quality wood and time-tested methods.
