Photographers looking for a handy monopod that also doubles as a durable walking stick need look no further than our Photographer’s Walking Stick, available in hickory, sassafras, and sweet gum.
This walking staff features all the beauty and durability you would expect from a Brazos Walking Stick, while also serving as an incognito monopod (the top unscrews to reveal the thread-mount). This handy monopod-walking-stick universally mounts to all standard cameras. What’s more, compared to the pricey, single-use monopod, this walking stick is a steal. 😉
Check out photographer Kent Weakley expound the virtues of our unique walking stick:
As the national leader in the area of Made In USA, handcrafted walking sticks and canes, Brazos Walking Sticks recognizes its responsibility to conduct its operations in a way that cares for, nurtures, protects, and improves the environment for current and future generations.
Brazos Walking Sticks understands that, as stewards of our Providence-given resources, we must conduct business in a way that is ethical, prudent, and forward-thinking. Since our inception nearly 20 years ago, we have worked with those goals in mind — all within a context of complete sustainability.
To those ends we promote production methods that focus on conservation of materials, efficient energy use, waste reduction, and environmental replenishment.
With regard to the harvesting of domestic woods, Brazos Walking Sticks practices renewable collection practices which focus on targeting dense areas of private forestry with an over-abundance of competitive saplings. Competitive saplings are young trees that spring up on an annual basis, taking resources from established flora within their ecosystems. The harvesting of competitive saplings is a boon to the natural environment in which they exist.
Exotic wood is procured through fair trade practices from reputable companies whose environmental ethic is similar to our own. Brazos Walking Sticks will not work with companies who engage in questionable business practices or suspect sustainability measures.
In summary, Brazos Walking Sticks seeks to produce premium handcrafted walking sticks and canes using the most sustainable options available. Our commitment to sustainability parallels our unwavering commitment to craftsmanship.
For serious hikers — or those aspiring to be serious hikers — we offer a versatile, strong, and robust spike tip option called the Lee Valley Spike. This spike tip has been a popular choice on all of our walking sticks, and even a few walking cane users have found the Lee Valley Spike to be beneficial.
Several years ago our friends at Lee Valley Tools collaborated with us to develop this spike tip, and it’s been one of our best selling spike options ever since.
This tip features a virtually indestructible brass design that is screwed in to the bottom of your shaft, for a strong, secure fit. The rubber tip and steel spike unscrew and are interchangeable.
At $26, this spike option is great for those wanting a long term solution with replaceable parts and a pristine design.
