The Brazos Free Form Cedar Walking Stick is fashioned from non-aromatic Western Cedar. The wood is creamy white and often shows gorgeous red-to-brown grain patterns. Each piece of cedar is carefully chosen, cut, sanded, and sprayed with a protective, clear coat lacquer to bring out the cedar's natural beauty. The finished staff is an attractive and useful walking aid that's firm and relatively lightweight. While not technically a hardwood, cedar is still a strong, durable wood that's an ideal choice for hikers or casual walkers alike.
