Feel Confident Buying From Brazos Walking Sticks

You can feel confident buying from Brazos Walking Sticks because we both manufacture and distribute all of the sticks and canes that we sell. Many of our competitors import their sticks or have their sticks drop-shipped from outsourced locations, essentially acting as a “middle man” between the manufacturer and you, the buyer.

At Brazos Walking Sticks, however, we control the entire process. If you need to talk to the craftsman who actually made your stick, no problem. If you need to call us to ask us specific questions about our stick-making processes, no problem. If you want to simply call us to chat about stick-making in general, no problem! We’re here to serve you, the customer, and we’re confident our quality and attention to detail will be seen in every piece that we make.

We have a presence in thousands of retail locations, hardware stores, national parks, and sporting goods stores across the nation.

Enabling The Disabled

Here are a few nice words from a woman who found our website:

I just wanted to let you know that I have tried searching for a replacement for my aluminum cane three times in the past 4 months. Each time I have stopped within a day because the search was so depressing … it made me feel old and reminded me of my disability (which is fairly new to me). When I found your website, everything changed. I am really enjoying perusing your gorgeous products and am extremely grateful I found it.

Choosing The Right Spike Option

If you’d like to accessorize your walking stick, Brazos Walking Sticks gives you plenty of options. We offer everything from custom laser engraving to Texas State Seals.

As far as ferrules go, we have a plethora of options to choose from. All of our sticks come with a standard rubber ferrule; this rubber tip provides sure “footing” for just about any environment. We do, however, offer three types of ferrules that both ardent hikers and enthusiasts would be interested in:

The Lee Valley Spike

This spike is out top-of-the-line model. It boasts a brass construction with a removable spike and rubber tip.

The Combination Spike

This spike is our most popular spike accessory. At $13 it’s affordable and highly functional. If you’re out trekking in the forest somewhere, just pull the rubber tip off and the spiked end will dig into the ground for secure hiking and positioning. Ready to go back onto pavement? Just slide the rubber tip back on and you’re ready to go!

The Spike Ferrule

This spike is for serious hikers! With a fine point spike, it’ll be your trusty companion through miles of rough terrain.

If you’re interested in accessorizing your stick, simply choose “Buy Now” from the particular stick’s page on our website. After you click Buy Now, a list of accessory options for your stick will appear.

Enjoy your new accessory!

Behold: Travelers Walking Stick

The Travelers Stick is one of our hot new items, and it seems like the more we get the word out about this stick, the more our demand for it increases! For years we had folks approach us about making a stick that breaks down for easy travel. We had been apprehensive about such a design, because we weren’t sold on the idea that a stick made in a such a way could be as sturdy as one of our standard walking sticks. Well, after much trial and error, a few months ago we came up with the design that is now our beloved Travelers Stick — and by all indications this is the stick our customers have been waiting for us to make!

The possibilities seem endless: throw this broken down staff in your backpack, in an overhead bin on an airplane, in your back seat, strapped to your dog’s back — you name it!

With this classic wooden walking stick, you get the same lifetime guarantee that’s indicative of all of our handcrafted walking sticks and walking canes, and you get the well-being that comes with owning and using a quality, handcrafted staff that’s perfect for exercise, or for fitness, or for recreation … or whatever!

It’s looking like this walking stick is the next big thing for Brazos Walking Sticks, so hop on the trail with The Feel of Nature™.


Bargain Hunters & Collectors, We’ve Got Something For You!

It’s no secret that Brazos Walking Sticks has the widest selection of handcrafted, Made In USA walking sticks and walking canes. Compare apples to apples by looking at the quality of our products and compare it to the quality of anyone else out there. Better yet, feel one our sticks in your hands and you’ll certainly agree — a Brazos Walking Stick is something special. With years upon years of woodworking experience, we’ve established proven patterns for our craftsmen that allow them to exercise their individual creativity while still making beautiful walking sticks with just a touch of necessary uniformity — and that’s what makes us unique!

While other stick companies may specialize in importing metal canes from foreign lands, we prefer to use renewable woods that are indigineous to the United States (and exotics as well!), and we handcraft each one using the finest tools and time-tested methods. The results speak for themselves: stunning creations that go beyond mere utility, into the realm of practical, functional art. As the saying goes, don’t just take our word for it. See what one faithful customer recently emailed us:

As a former trial attorney, I used to drive a large black Mercedes Benz S500. Not only is a Mercedes a very nice car, but I especially enjoyed the fine craftsmanship that went into the interior, especially the woodwork on the dash. … I feel the same sort of excitement when I receive a new Brazos stick. In my opinion, the craftsmanship and artistry of your products is on par with that of a Mercedes.

Sometimes we have sticks that just don’t quite make the cut. They’re still handcrafted; they’re still made with renewable wood; and they’re still a Brazos Walking Stick … but they’re not quite there, if you know what we mean. For these sticks we have a special spot on our website called Brazos Bargains.

These bargain sticks are typically 30 to 50 percent off retail — or more! Some of them are refurbished and pristine, with not flaws whatsoever, and others have obvious issues that we try our best to communicate through item descriptions and photographs. Since these walking sticks and walking canes are so heavily discounted, we can’t offer our typical lifetime guarantee, but be assured that you’re still buying The Feel of Nature™!

On the other end of the spectrum are gorgeous Collectors walking sticks and walking canes that are literally one-of-a-kind. What we mean by that is our most skilled master craftsman only makes one of each stick, so once a stick has sold it’s gone forever! We guarantee these canes and sticks for life, and we’re certain you’ll agree that they are the finest walking canes money can buy. Their beauty is simply unparalleled.

So there you have it: bargain to collector. Whatever your fancy, we’ve got something for you!

Customer excited to have his “tool” back and his independence

Dear Brazos Sticks,

Hi, my wife and I are the parents of a child with Cerebral Palsy, Spencer. Cerebral Palsy affects Spencer’s legs and left arm making independence a challenge.

We recently found your walking sticks at a local store and bought a Twisted Aromatic Cedar for Spencer to assist with his ability to walk independently. Independence is a big thing in his life and your sticks have added to his quality of life.

Since buying your stick he has gotten several compliments, especially at church.

When his brothers broke his stick today he was devastated. My wife ran to the local store and found him another Twisted Aromatic Cedar and in fact she bought him 2 sticks this time. The second is a Twisted Oak-Brown.
When Spencer received his new sticks he was so excited to have his “tool” back and his independence.
Thanks for making a high quality stick, we are sure there will be many more in Spencer’s life time.

Press Release On The Traveler’s Stick

Brazos Walking Sticks announced today the launch of its beautiful wood Traveler’s Stick (TM), which breaks into sections, in seconds, from a full 55 inches to a compact 19 inches. Traveling by airplane, in a small car or on a bike with one’s favorite, full-size, handcrafted walking staff has been practically impossible, until now. Travelers, geocachers, RVers, scouts, outdoorsmen, outdoorswomen, campers, backpackers, hikers and safari travelers now have a choice over cold metal and brittle plastic.

The new Traveler’s Stick offers the same quality, stability and utility of a one-piece stick, yet unscrews into three equal parts for easy transportation. Unassembled, this sectional walking stick will fit easily into an airplane’s overhead bin, in a backpack, strapped to a bike, or in the trunk of a car. With its small and discreet size, this staff can be taken virtually anywhere.

Please read the entire press release, and buy a Traveler’s Stick to take The Feel of Nature wherever you go!

Probably one of the most frequent requests we get around here is for a stick that breaks down into three easy parts, making it easier to travel with. While we’ve tried our hand at producing such a stick through the years, we’ve never really had a product we were comfortable with — until now.

Introducing the Traveler’s Stick. This ingenious beauty is crafted from oak and it’s made to easily break down into three 19-inch segments, making it ideal for anyone wanting to stow it away in a trunk, an airplane overhead bin, a backpack, or just about anywhere.

Walk The Pooch With The Brazos Walking Sticks FitnessWalker!

Paw Prints The Magazine recently did a piece on our FitnessWalker, highlighting the stick’s intrinsic utility and flexibility while being used for something as simple as walking a dog. Here’s a snippet:

These walking sticks are fantastic! Not only are they very light weight and comfortable to use, they look great. The wood is a much nicer feel than all the high tech aircraft aluminum and carbon fiber poles on the market. I have a leash that attaches around my belt so I was able to use two sticks giving my arms a great workout as well. If you have to use a handheld leash you can use one FitnessWalker and still get the benefit of burning extra calories.

The great thing about the FitnessWalker is it’s ergonomically designed to fit comfortably in your hand while you trek through your neighborhood, favorite trail, fitness track, or anywhere, really. So get the leash out and get outside with a Brazos Walking Sticks FitnessWalker — you’ll be glad you did! And, like all of our handcrafted walking sticks and canes, the FitnessWalker is Made In USA!

Buy a FitnessWalker (or two!) now.
