Sizing a walking stick is, in many ways, subjective; however, through years of experience, we have developed some basic parameters -- suggestions, really -- for choosing a correct walking stick size. XS - For people who are between 4' 11-5' 2'' (150-158 cm), we recommend a 30-inch (76 cm) stick. S - For people who are between 5' 3-5' 6'' (160-168 cm), we recommend a 32-inch (81) stick. M - For people who are between 5' 7" - 5' 10" (172-180 cm), we recommend a 34-inch (86) stick.
L - For people who are between 5' 11 - 6' 2'' (182-190 cm), we recommend a 36-inch (91 cm) stick. Again, the sizing recommendations listed above are only suggestions. Devrek walking sticks are not just sticks but works of art.
Wood from the Cornelian cherry, which grows up to five meters tall, is used to make stick. The wood to make the shaft is cut from the straightest branches of the tree in November till January when the sap is low, and then left to season for three years. This time prevents the stick from warping after it has been carved and decorated and also lightens the weight of the stick.
Devrek has been the source of the material for making walking sticks since the time of the Ottoman sultanate. A stick is divided into three sections: handle, shaft, and tip.The handles are made from oak, hornbeam, and the tip is mostly made of water buffalo horn. The handles generally range from the plain and T-shaped to handles carved in the shape of the horse, eagle, wolf, snake and lion heads, and knob-shaped handles. The stem is made of cornelian cherry.
The difference between a cheap stick and an expensive stick is not only the materials used, but also the time it takes for a master craftsman to fully decorate a stick as a work of art. Devrek walking sticks are presented to most of the statesmen visiting Turkey. Turkish president presented Devrek walking sticks as gifts to Elizabeth II and Prince Charles during their visits to Turkey. Devrek walking sticks are world famous because of the art of work on the shaft not only on the handle. In other cities of Turkey and other countries mostly artwork is just on the handle.
The shafts are always made of cornelian cherry which grows in Devrek forests. All sticks are 100% handmade. The reason why we are using water buffalo horn for the tip is that because the water buffalo horn is sterile and it prevents slipping.
