TheMaple Walking Stick is made of hard, dense maple making it suitable for both arduous hikes through rugged terrain and casual strolls through picturesque walking trails. Maple has a dark, bark with a very light white center. Each piece of maple is carefully selected, cut, gently sanded, and sprayed with a protective clear coat lacquer; the result is a rustic, attractive staff that is viable for years to come. The Maple 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 Dogwood Walking Stick is made in the USA by our skilled craftsmen using the highest quality materials and time-tested methods."
