I take frequent hikes on rocky and uneven terrain. The length of this walking stick is especially helpful on steep descents, where this "third leg" allows one to stay vertical more easily than with shorter sticks. This, combined with its lightness and sturdiness makes this walking stick great for my nature walks.,I have a collection of walking staffs for display and I use when hiking. When this walking staff arrived, I knew immediately it was my favorite. Not only is it functionally designed and quality made, but it is a piece of art worthy of display , but clearly much thought went into its design for practical use. It is light and perfectly balanced, as I discovered by using it on a walk. It swings in unison with each step and seems very natural. The collapsible spike is an added bonus and well engineered. i highly recommend this top quality walking staff.,After I received one of these sticks as a gift, I was so taken by it that I bought one for each of my elderly parents. The sticks are wonderful - they provide stability, security and safety, and encourage the user to walk upright instead of leaning over a cane. My mother uses hers constantly - even in the house it is never far from her side. My father uses his when he walks outdoors. They are safer and more confident with their walking sticks, and enjoy the comments of others about the style of the stick and the beautiful grain of the tiger maple.,This is a terrific hiking stick! Though the rubber tip is removable, I leave it on to protect the incredibly beautiful wood (the image on the website cannot do justice!); and retractable spike is useful on slippery paths.
Its versatility is how perfectly it works as a stabilizing cane for my 85-yr-old mom who finds that it helps her walk more erect than leaning on a cane did.
The lathe turned grip is comfortable and prevents slippage. Removable hand strap. Well designed and fine product.
