Update March 2018 - Despite being a sustainable timber, Sheesham wood now requires an export licence from the manufacturer. This means that we cannot restock our canes at the moment. We still have a couple of dozen canes in stock - once these are sold we may not be able to restock so get your one now!
"Excellent trader. And a stunning product. beautiful range of canes. Highly recommend. AA++"
The Walking Stick (also known as the Walking Cane) was a fashion accessory until fairly recent times. Also, in an age where personal protection is becoming more of a neccessity, the Walking Stick can serve as a means of self-defence in an emergency (see here for example).
Our Walking Sticks are also made by Lord of Battles. Most of them are made from Sheesham Wood, a premier timber species also known as Indian Rosewood. Sheesham is a common, non-threatened timber so it is a sustainable resource. Sheesham is among the finest cabinet and veneer timbers. It is the wood from which musical instruments, agricultural tools, carvings, boats, skis, flooring, etc are made so makes an ideal strong timber to use for Walking Sticks.
Another wood that Lord of Battles uses in some of the canes in our range is Eucalyptus which is also a sustainable timber and the species used for for canes that has simiilar properties to Sheesham.
The Walking Sticks come in a variety of lengths and the shafts have either plain or carved finishes. The head of each of our canes are unique and range from the traditional style of handle to a bulbous end that fits nicely in the hand.
Our Walking Sticks are a great gift to an elderly relative or anybody who has mobility issues. But they go beyond that. They are also a great fashion accessory and also make a great accessory for people interested in the Steampunk and other genres.
We ship our Walking Sticks via NZ Courier Post.
