A strong, thick, rustic diamond willow walking staff, t. His beautiful hiking stick is an eclectic work or art. The diamond willow is incredibly gorgeous itself, and would be a impressive display of beauty even with out the embellishments I've added. Girth is best for someone with average or large adult hands. Great for long walks, backpacking and camping trips, everyday use as a cane, or as a handheld theater prop for a wizard, shaman or wise elder character, or Halloween warlock costume accessory.POLISHED STONES: Inlaid light green chalcedony, accented with copper and brass. Stone is NOT coated with clear poly, but copper and brass are given a few coats to prevent tarnishing. FOR AVG or BIG HANDS: One with average adult hands would find this comfortable, and. Larger hands will be pleased to find this is not too thin and would find this especially comfortable. Not recommended for small hands. ERGONOMIC HAND GRIP: Bend at top is ergonomic in that it allows you to hold it at different, more comfortable angles to give you a break from what would otherwise be a constant 90 degree bend at the wrist.
Top is super strong, smooth and comfortable. There are diamonds on the side that don't impede, but rather the indents make great finger grips and hand guides. LIGHTWEIGHT at just 1 lb. CURVES: Has delightfully accentuated curves, giving it great character and making it extra intriguing, but the stick stands straight for the most part and works great! Though curvy, it does come back to center, as opposed to an arc or bow.
RAILS: Has a bit of the highly coveted, unique and rare semi-railing effect, where the diamonds become one with the wood and twist and turn the wood due to spalding/spalting. ALL NATURAL: The gorgeous wooden diamonds and beautiful markings all made by nature. I harvest, sand and coat these myself with only clear poly. No stains or paints added. DIAMONDS: has an abundance of 23 wooden diamonds of various hues of tan, luscious caramel, reddish brown and deep brown with gorgeous lines.
ALSO, has a few particularly deep diamonds (although it's difficult to capture the many curves and forms in the photos). They're beautiful alone, and also perfect for embedding stones or charms into them, if you'd wish. The walking stick in the photo is the one you will get.

OOAK, unique, handmade in USA by me, the CEO of Climbing Monkeys.I use either a cane or staff myself every day and take pride in making sure you get a beautiful, strong and sturdy hiking staff. Diamond willow is strong wood and I make these earth journey sticks to last for many years! INLAYS: An indent is carved where I plan to place each element, and then they are glued in with super strong epoxy. Stone inlay is not coated with clear poly like the rest of the wood of the cane is coated; however I DID coat the metals with clear poly to prevent tarnishing. SUSTAINABLE: Not clear cut, but each is selectively hand picked by me as I harvest this diamond willow in northern Minnesota, USA.
I take one or two out of a clump of trees, leaving the rest of the clump intact, with more nutrients and sunlight and room to grow. METICULOUSLY SANDED: Stripped of bark and lovingly sanded, often for several hours to help bring out nature's beautiful colors and designs. THOROUGHLY DRIED: Wood is dried for several months, often with a fan blowing on them in the summer, ensuring they're fully cured.FINISHED: then given 5 coats of clear poly to help bring out the colors and help protect your hiking staff. BOOT: Comes with a brand new rubber cane protector.
