Iron Bamboo -- technically "giant grass" and not wood -- has a tremendous strength-to-weight ratio making the Free Form Iron Bamboo Walking Stick simultaneously one of the lightest and strongest walking staffs we carry. Thanks to iron bamboo's thick walls, durability, ruggedness, and smooth, natural surface, the Free Form Iron Bamboo Walking Stick is an easy-to-handle, reliable staff for those looking for a long term hiking aid. The Free Form Iron Bamboo Walking Stick is available in a natural finish that is sanded smoothly and sprayed with a protective clear coat lacquer; the staff is also available in a popular red finish and an elegant black finish, each with a protective clear coat lacquer. The Free Form Iron Bamboo 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 Iron Bamboo Walking Stick is made in the USA by our skilled craftsmen using the highest quality materials and time-tested methods.
