With its distinct, reddish bark, and its stunning, majestic twist, the Twisted Sassafras Walking Stick is easily one of the more sought-after hiking staffs, a prized possession for ardent hikers and collectors alike.
Each piece of sassafras is meticulously chosen, prepared, cut, and sanded, giving it a distinctive twist. Finally, each stick is sprayed with a protective clear coat lacquer — the result is a smooth finish that magnifies the wood’s innate beauty. The finished staff is a one-of-a-kind, handcrafted walking stick that is both sturdy and attractive.

Walking With A Stick
Solid wood walking sticks are a great way to attain extra mobility by offering you a firm-footed “third leg” that’s ideal for virtually any terrain. What’s more, walking with two poles (walking sticks) can provide even more stability and other health-related benefits like upper body exercise and light strength-building. Whether you’re trekking on arduous paths, trails, and other challenging terrain, or simply casually strolling through your neighborhood or local park, a stable walking stick or cane is invaluable.
Walking With a Single Walking Stick
One walking stick will give you much-needed stability in just about any situation. While hiking, a single staff is essential to negotiate loose gravel and dirt, streams, and dense forests. While casually strolling through neighborhoods or parks, a single stick will give you a little extra assurance with each step while relieving stress on joints and muscles.
Fitness Walking/Walking for Health
Using two walking sticks (“fitness poles”) simultaneously is quickly becoming a popular exercise. Two sticks allow you to utilize your entire upper body, doubling the exercise benefit of walking alone.
Hiking Staffs and Trekking Poles
Using two walking sticks on trails can be beneficial. As with casual walking, with two poles, using two sticks or poles provides extra stability and takes pressure off of often-overworked joints. In many cases, two sticks is better than one!
Walking With Walking Sticks
Brazos Walking Sticks are handcrafted, made-in-the-USA walking sticks and designed to be perfect companions for whatever your walking or hiking needs may be. At the most basic level, any of their sticks can simply be picked up, taken on a stroll, and used intuitively.
Now for a more in-depth look: Most of Brazos Walking Sticks are designed to be gripped just below the leather strap, in an area refered to as the “grip area.” The grip area should allow for a positive, stress-relieving angle as your arm, wrist, and hand interact with the stick. For convenience and ease, our walking sticks offer handy leather straps that come standard with each walking stick we make. The leather straps help relieve stress on your hand and help keep your hand on the grip area.
