If you want a nice walking staff that shows the beauty of natural wood through skilled craftsmanship, then one of my handcrafted wooden trekking sticks is for you! At least 10 wooden diamonds made by nature. At least a one-inch diameter at the bottom so it can support at least 350 lbs. A brand new rubber cane stopper for added traction.
The one you get may have a few curves, making it extra intriguing, but the stick will stand straight for the most part and guaranteed to work great for all hiking and walking uses. PHOTOS ARE JUST EXAMPLES Your hiking stick will be different. Each is one of a kind (OOAK) and unique with great character.
Send me a message ASAP if you have a preference for girth or diameter, or. If the person who will use this hiking stick has extra-small or extra-large hands (so we can find a hiking staff that has the proper girth so their hand grip is not too thin or too thick); or if theyre extra heavy or overweight and need a thicker stick, or if they prefer something extra-light and thin...
IF I DON'T HEAR FROM YOU, then the girth will fit the average size adult hand. SIZING GUIDE: Preferences vary and it depends on the terrain, but generally a hiking staff should be about shoulder height, or 6-8 in. Measure while wearing your regular walking shoes. Varies; avg is 1.25-1.75. Varies; avg 1.5-2.5 lbs.Diamond willow wood, clear polyurethane, new rubber cane stopper. GENERAL INFO ABOUT MY HIKING STICKS.
SUSTAINABLE: Not clear cut, but each is selectively hand picked by me as I harvest this diamond willow in northern Minnesota, USA. METICULOUSLY SANDED: Stripped of bark and lovingly sanded 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. Each of our wooden hiking sticks is handmade from the diamond willow tree of Northern Minnesota, USA.The hiking pole is actually an upside down tree, so it tapers toward the bottom a bit. The diamond willow I harvest from northern Minnesota is a solid, strong hard wood which makes a sturdy, safe walking stick or trekking cane. I say "sustainably harvested" because the diamonds are created by a fungus, so the trees I harvest are either dead or dying when I cut them. They grow in clumps, so when I selectively harvest and take 1-2 out of a clump, that leaves room for the others to get more sunlight and nutrients to enhance their short lives, as well. Unlike some folks who stain or paint their sticks to enhance or even "make" diamonds (because finding a stick growing in the woods that has GOOD diamonds, height, girth and structure is work)...
Yet I find there's no need to make diamonds when nature already makes the most beautiful wooden diamond designs. I never stain or make diamonds. I've only meticulously sanded and added clear coat poly.The natural colors of each hiking stick are spectacular, with a variety of tan, brown and reddish brown colors. MAY have insect marking or other designs in the wood and discolorations of color created by nature. ALL sticks are cured (dried) for several months, and all insects have long disappeared. My walking sticks are very sturdy! I take pride in making sure you will get the same high quality, strong walking pole that I would use.
I use either one of my handmade walking canes or a taller walking staff DAILY, and I've had both for several years. I take pride in making sure you get a beautiful, strong and sturdy hiking staff just as good or better than the one I use. I inspect each stick at EACH step of the crafting process (especially during and after the curing or drying process, when cracks will often show up), making sure there's no soft wood or cracks, throwing out questionable pieces, and only keeping the strongest ones to finish and sell for your use.
No stains or coloring have been added. Unlike some people who "create" diamonds in their sticks by carving and adding color to try to make them look natural, I've only tried to enhance nature's beauty with an obsessively respectful sanding and 5-7 layers of clear polyurethane coating for extra protection and to highlight nature's beauty. Diamond willow is strong wood and I make these earth journey sticks to last for many years!
