The Wood Spirit Legend..........................
The Wood Spirit is a European legend originating from villagers who made long journeys through the forest. On calm days when the wind lays low there is a sense of peace and tranquility in the forest. On days when storms are brewing and winds are blowing the trees of the forest make sounds of moaning and sighing as though voices can be heard from 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 carvings 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.

Here is where you will find gorgeous hand-made walking sticks, hiking sticks, steam bent canes, and tree root canes among other quality items.

We make these versatile functional walking sticks with the avid hiker in mind, but they are also great to use as home décor, they are very unique, and all are a one of a kind, since no two will ever be the same.

They make awesome one of a kind gifts, one that will be remembered for sure.

They look awesome standing in the corner when, of course, not out working for you. They also look nice placed in an umbrella stand, or in a collection hanging on a wall, or surrounding an outdoor picture.

Out on the trail, they are useful to relieve stress on the back, knees, hips, and ankles, and to provide more stability on uneven or loose ground….I hear people state, “I am not that old yet, to use a walking stick”, but that is not what it’s all about. I use one while simply out walking my dog’s about town. They are great for self protection against both the two legged and four legged kind. Just the appearance of one in your hands adds a deterrent against all sorts of evils.

You can never tell when you will need to remove a web an enterprising spider built across the path, or possibly check for holes under a layer of fallen leaves. The use’s are endless, and used properly, they will become a true friend, and companion.

They are all made here in the United States of America, and made with the hardwood's that are grown here. I use quality hardwood's such as Hickory, Persimmon, Dogwood, Ironwood, Elm, Hawthorn, Walnut, Black Walnut, Cherry, Sycamore, Oak, and Osage Orange, just to name a few…each have their own characteristic of hardness and strength, weight and durability….and used properly, all are built to bring the user a very long time of service, quite possibly a lifetime....100% of my staffs have been kiln dried, which means they should not split out on you, and the carving should never check or crack. Just keep a rubber tip on the ground end and you should be ready to go.

I do all the wood spirit carvings myself, some take a lot more time then others, and all are One of a Kinds. My carvings are always evolving. I do roughly 10-12 different looks, but hope to have a few more new ones in the near future.

"KNOCKING ON WOOD" ....The legend tells of knocking on tree's to awaken the spirit within, it is said that these spirit's would ward off evil, and bring good luck and good fortune...hence the saying..."Knock on Wood".......
