Padauk is an African exotic wood with a beautiful naturally red hue that finishes with a touch of class and elegance. African padauk ranges in color from a bright red to a warm, reddish-brown. Its naturally red color has made it a prized possession among woodworkers for centuries. The Padauk Pistol Grip Walking Cane is crafted from a solid piece of padauk; each piece is carefully chosen, cut, worked on a router, and sanded to a finished perfection. Finally, each piece is sprayed with a protective clear coat lacquer. The resulting walking cane is equal parts art and utility -- a masterpiece fusion of function and style. This walking cane's unique pistol grip handle gives it an ergonomic feel in your hand; its solid padauk construction assures you a strong, stable walking companion. Each cane comes with a standard rubber ferrule for a firm, secure grip on virtually any surface. Like all of our staffs and canes, the Padauk Pistol Grip Walking Cane is handcrafted in the USA using the highest quality wood and time-tested methods.
