The Brazos Free Form Hawthorn Walking Stick is made from strong Hawthorn hardwood (also known as Carolina Hawthorne) that finishes with a rich brown bark and a yellow center. This reliable staff is perfect for casual strolls through the neighborhood or arduous hikes across rough terrain. Each walking stick is carefully chosen, cut, sanded, and finished with a protective clear coat lacquer. The finished product is a visually appealing, rustic walking aid that will last you for years to come. Like all of Brazos finely crafted walking sticks and canes, the Hawthorn Walking Stick is made in the USA by their skilled craftsmen using the highest quality wood and time-tested methods.
