Brazos Walking Sticks

We’ve already covered some trekking poles and at least one pair of Nordic walking poles this month, so it’s time for something a little different. Brazos Walking Sticks is a family-run business based in the Brazos River Valley of Texas. Each of their unique wooden walking sticks and canes is handcrafted by a local woodworker, and guaranteed to be one of a kind.

While they offer a variety of products, the Fitness Walker is the one that initially caught my eye. Unlike their other walking sticks, the Fitness Walker is designed to be used in pairs, and more attention is paid to creating an ergonomic grip area. An attractive alternative to modern metal/composite poles, they are offered in brown, tan, or red stained finish. There are several handle options, including a thermometer, different tip choices, and even three styles of carrying cases. Four sizes are offered, to suit most adults and children, with prices starting at $42.

If you’re more interested in a single walking stick for yourself, or as a gift, Brazos offers plenty to choose from. You’ll find interesting shapes including free-form and bent, multiple hardwood choices and stains, and exotic hardwoods that are as collectible as they functional. There are models with a top that unscrews to reveal a 1/4″ x 20 screw for mounting a camera, turning your walking stick into a monopod. Other options include a compass or whistle built into the top. Travelers will enjoy the three piece unit that unscrews for packing.  For a truly original stick, check out the cheerful, boldly colored walking sticks (close up pictured below) made from 19 layers of different colored laminated hardwood. Speaking of guarantees, Brazos offers a lifetime warranty against defects, as well as a 100/100 satisfaction guarantee. This guarantee states that if you are not 100% satisfied, you can return your purchased item within 100 days for a full refund, or exchange it for another for only $10 (plus shipping). It’s refreshing to see companies stand behind their products like that.

The Brazos website is very informative. In addition to covering their full product line and accessories, there’s a “How to” section containing sizing tips, walking tips, and even a link to their best deals page. You’ll also find a section that details the different hardwoods, showing the color and grain structures as well.

Although there are certainly benefits to aerospace alloys and carbon fiber, nothing can compare to the warmth and natural beauty of a wooden walking stick. If you agree, head on over to their website.
