Hello Everyone ….(Staff # 12-089)

One Beautiful Staff!

This listing is for a Genuine Ironwood Walking Stick / Hiking Stick, this lovely staff measure's in at 60" tall, the diameter at the top is 1-3/8`" and the diameter at the bottom above the ground end is 1"

I have carved a Lucky Wood Spirit into bout the front lower mid-stick area, and his appearance is awesome, lots of detail, ....Super Nice.

What is a wood spirit you ask???

The Wood Spirit Legend..........................
The Wood Spirit is a European legend originating from villager's who made long journeys through the forest. On calm days when the wind lay's low there is a sense of peace and tranquility in the forest. On days when storm's are brewing and wind's are blowing the trees of the forest make sound's of moaning and sighing as though voices can be heard from the spirits within. For centuries people believed the forests to be filled with mystical spirits and that those who dared to enter would earn the spirit’s wrath. At the same time these spirits are gentle with the maidens, children and men of good heart. Catching a glimpse of one of these elusive creatures is said to be a lucky thing, for if you are fortunate enough to actually see one, your health, happiness and good fortune are guaranteed.

Wise travelers assured their safety by carving wood spirit images on walking sticks or pieces of wood and bark. These carving's appeased the spirits thus the traveler was allowed to enter and leave the forest without difficulty.

The charming tradition of the carved wood spirit lives on today. Wood spirits are still being carved into pieces of wood and are often given as house-warming gifts, retirement gifts and Christmas gifts. The wood spirit carving should be given a special place within the home in order for it’s presence to bring wisdom, prosperity, humor, good health and good luck to all that live there.

I have attached a leather wrist-strap and on that strap you will find a Blue acrylic "WalkersStics" maker's tag....just a little added adornment, and it also show's I am very proud to have my name on my product.

Several coats of gloss lacquer with UV Protection has been applied and the proper size black rubber tip is on the ground end...this item is ready to go places with you.

This is a quality Genuine Ironwood wood hiking stick, handmade by me in America, I use only the best materials in order to bring you an item you too will be proud to own or give as a gift....All of my item's are kiln dried hardwoods, not the dry rotted, or insect infested woods commonly found while out on a hike, if you want a walking stick too last, it need's to be cured the right way. My item's are built to provide many many years of service, and quite possibly a lifetime....This staff is Ironwood, and according to the Janka side hardness test, it is ranked as #5 in terms of hardness of all the woods grown in North America, right behind Hickory if I remember right. Very Durable Indeed, but nowhere near the weight as say a Persimmon, Dogwood, or a Hickory staff of the same size and diameter.

Thank You so much for your interest in my products, I look forward to serving you with a quality item, and great customer service.
