Thank Those Who Served with a Handmade Brazos Walking Stick

walking-stickThe military, police officers, and firefighters all risk their lives to keep us and our country safe. Give back to those who have served you and your country with a handmade Brazos walking stick. Difficulty walking and climbing stairs is the most common disability among disabled veterans. A walking stick improves balance and mobility for disabled and older veterans, while serving as a personal memento of their sacrifice and service. Read on to discover the benefits of Brazos walking sticks and canes for retired police officers, firefighters, and veterans.

Improve balance and mobility

As people age daily physical activities like walking become more difficult. This is especially true for veterans and retired police officers and firefighters, as they have endured a career of tough physical work. A cane or walking stick provides a walking aid that improves your balance and mobility. With a walking stick, walking becomes much easier, allowing retired veterans to remain active. Additionally, a walking stick forces you to move in an upright position and maintain good posture.

Handmade in the USA

Brazos walking sticks aren’t like your average walking stick. They exhibit the highest quality craftsmanship. Each Brazos walking cane and walking stick is individually crafted from the finest native and exotic woods, such as hickory, sassafras, iron bamboo, and sweet gum. All Brazos products are handcrafted by local artisan craftsmen in Central Texas, near the Brazos River. Most of the walking sticks are harvested in the nearby woods of Eastern Texas, Arkansas, Western Louisiana, and the high mountain deserts of New Mexico.

Customization

Customization with laser engraving is available for all Brazos walking sticks and canes. Personalizing a walking stick makes it uniquely yours. For instance, a walking stick can be laser engraved with a veteran’s name and military branch or a retired firefighter’s name and fire department. Accessories like a whistle or compass can also be added to further customize the walking stick.

Thank your loved ones for their service with a Brazos walking stick. The general benefits of walking sticks, combined with Brazos’s high-quality craftsmanship and customization, makes a walking stick or cane the perfect gift.


Prediction

We’re not in the prediction business here at Brazos Walking Sticks. We’re in the stick making business. Still, it’s difficult to not conjecture as we ponder world events, market fluctuations, and numerous other variables that have a direct impact on American life and products that are Made In The USA.

Brazos Walking Sticks has been around for nearly 20 years. We started out selling a few custom, handcrafted canes at art shows and so forth, and over the years we’ve grown steadily. Currently we’re in more than 4,000 retail locations across the country, and we do quite a bit of business via our website: brazossticks.com.

With that said, we’ve seen a lot over the years. We’ve seen economic fluctuations, the Great Recession, and a plethora of fads simply come and go. One thing’s for sure: quality, American-made craftsmanship is not a fad.

Truth be told, we see a resurgence in demand for all things Made In USA, and the future is bright for American craftsmen and American-made products. People who doggedly purchase Made In USA products are those who like to “vote with their pocketbooks,” while supporting local families and local jobs. We see those types of conscientious purchasers increasing in numbers, not decreasing.

It’s morning in America, so brew a cup of coffee, hop online, and buy something that was Made In America.
