My 57 inch Red Cedar Walking Staff
This hand crafted Red Cedar walking stick is 57inches long with a wonderful natural deep dark red and white spotted finish like an African Giraffe, I finished it with many many coats of a non-toxic oil finish to protect it, then hand sanded each coat of oil with a finer grit of sandpaper the last was done with 1500 GRIT carbide sandpaper to protect the cane and seal the wood, then I hand rubbed that in with a soft cotton T-shirt that made the grain of the wood stand out like glass I think.
I have Multiple Sclerosis, A lot of MS sufferers rely on walking staff's to help with there difficulties with coordination but I also Enjoy the unique quality feel in my hand of a handmade staff or strolling stick for my daily walk around the block in town or hiking down the country lane by the pond near my home.
A strong walking staff or stick Can act as unique legal protection weapon for any citizens self defense when a quick hard straight jab is used against an attacking man or beast to change any plan they may have had in mind.
