Description

This listing is for a set of custom-made blocks for hand-balancing. Handstand blocks offer greater diversification for hand-balance practice compared with the ground. All blocks are manufactured using hardwood for durability and endurance.

Upon completion of your order, I will contact you directly via email for sizing information needed to customize your handstand blocks to your preferences. I will NOT be able to start your order until I have received your measurements. If I do not receive the measurements needed to begin your order within 4 weeks of the date of purchase, I will cancel the order and refund your purchase.

Block Options:

Flat Handstand Blocks: These blocks are for use on the ground. They are flat and rectangular in shape, carefully sanded and smoothed to remove all edges and corners for your safety and comfort, as well as custom-fitted to the length of your palm for comfort. Blocks will be 2" tall unless otherwise specified by you. A quantity of "1" includes one pair of blocks.

Round Blocks: These blocks are round instead of rectangular, carefully sanded and smoothed to remove all edges and corners for your safety and comfort, as well as custom-fitted to the length of your palm for comfort. Blocks will be 2" tall unless otherwise specified by you. A quantity of "1" includes one pair of blocks.

Angled Blocks: These blocks are designed to be used at a declined angle, which decreases the severity of wrist flexion and mimics the angle of wrist flexion used in partner acrobatics. One order includes a pair of blocks. All blocks will be cut at a 10 degree angle (this angle is recommended for best performance while easing wrist discomfort) unless otherwise specified by you. All blocks will be flat on the top and sides, coming to a rounded edge. The standard height of the bottom half of the block will be 2 inches, unless otherwise specified. Please note that not all of the lumbers that I offer are available for this option. The thickness of lumber needed for the angled blocks is not available for the exotic lumbers. Blocks will be between 2" and 3" tall unless otherwise specified by you. A quantity of "1" includes one pair of blocks.

Rubberized Blocks (NEW!): These blocks have a thin layer of rubber applied permanently to the bottom of the block, to help increase the friction of the block surface and to prevent slipping during use. This rubber is very thin and will not inhibit use of the blocks on carpet or a yoga mat. The rubber is not recommended for use on abrasive surfaces such as concrete.

Blocks for Canes: You also have the option to select these blocks for use on any set of handstand canes sold in my shop, with exception of the Pro Model. You can purchase these in addition to the pair that will come with your handstand canes for additional options in your training, or you can send me a custom order request for the inclusion of these blocks instead of the normal blocks on any set of handstand canes. Blocks will be between 2" and 3" tall unless otherwise specified by you. A quantity of "1" includes one pair of blocks.

Pro Model Blocks: The Pro Model blocks featured in this listing are exclusively for use with the new Pro Model of Kimber's Canes. All of the Pro Model blocks can be purchased with rotation mechanism installed. You can purchase this model in single quantities only. For example, for two angled Pro blocks, enter a quantity of "2" angled Pro blocks. For a single rotating rectangular Pro block and two tall rectangular Pro blocks, enter a quantity of "1" rotating rectangular Pro block and a quantity of "2" tall rectangular Pro blocks. The lumber choice is up to you, and can be specified in the comments of your order.

As I only use high-quality woods with beautiful grain patterns, all wood options come without additional stains or laquers. My personal preference is a natural unstained wood, so that the natural grain of wood creates good texture under your hand. If you do not prefer this look and would prefer a lacquered finish, please message me directly so that I can work out a price point for you.

As with all exercise equipment, any misuse of this product can result in injury, and by purchasing this product you agree that you are liable for any action taken with the handstand canes. Orders are non-refundable at this time.

    Exactly as described and made to fit my (somewhat small) hands. Been using my new handstand blocks a ton. Very happy with them!

    This additional set is our fifth Kimberscanes block set and was fit to my partner’s hand for use on our practice cane set. Makes for a challenging grip on me when I want to practice palm only balancing. Beautiful cut, clean grain, and lovely color.

FAQs

Kimber's Handstand Canes are constructed of natural materials, and are subject to natural deviations in integrity. I do my very best to select materials that are strong and durable for all of my handstand canes and related products, and I stand behind my promise of a safe product that will last. If your Kimber's Canes fail in any way during the year following your purchase, I will do whatever is needed to make it right. You can ship any damaged component back to me and I will repair it, replace it, or issue a refund. This guarantee only covers damage incurred during normal and appropriate use. It is my mission to ensure that your product is safe and comfortable, and I will guarantee their endurance for an entire year after purchase.
If you're new to handstand canes, the taller canes can be a little daunting. 6" is a very reasonable place to start, and because all of posts on Kimber's Canes are designed to be interchangeable, you can easily upgrade once you've developed more confidence on your new canes! I'm betting it will happen faster than you expect ;)
The biggest difference is the decreased surface area for contact with your hand. You will generally lose the flat surface area under the finger tips, which will create an additional realm with which you can control your balance. This will diversify your handstand practice and prepare you for balancing on all types of surfaces! Additionally, the absence of the ground beneath your hands means that you can use that space to practice transitions that you cannot access on flat ground, such as tuck holds or L-sit transitions. Handstand canes open up worlds of possibility when training handstands, for everyone from beginning to circus performers!
You can find the "Purchases and Reviews" area of Etsy under the "You" tab at the top of the screen on the browser version, or on in the bottom menu of the mobile app.
There are three main models of my handstand canes to choose from. All sets come with two blocks and two posts, and the style of the base is the main distinction between the standard set, the Travel Base option, and the Travel Model, which comes in smaller dimensions and have the option for decreased overall weight. More information about each set can be found in the listings "Custom Handstand Canes" and "Custom Handstand Canes - Travel Model".
Each lumber has unique qualities, including grain pattern, density, and color. Ultimately, your choice of canes will depend on which lumber you most like the look of, and you may want to consider the density of each lumber if you intend to be traveling often with your set (a set made from a less dense lumber will weigh less) or if you weigh in excess of 150 lbs (a denser lumber may provide more stability for your activity on the canes). Below is a list of the lumbers that I offer in order of density (less dense -> more dense).
