Throughout history, every culture has had their own interpretation of the quintessential walking stick. From the city gentleman to the hard-working farmer, every man had a stick! These awesome tools were once incredibly commonplace, but sadly carrying a stick fell from popular fashion. We’ve long championed a revival of this practice and we’ve worked hard to try and encourage people to bring back this once-great tradition! The walking stick is so much more than just an aid to stability for the injured, ill or infirm. As any hiker or outdoorsman will tell you, it’s also an excellent tool for traversing rough, slippery, uneven and treacherous terrain, a useful pointer or probe – and in dire straits it makes a capable self-defense option! The Walkabout was a much loved classic from our earlier line up. A fan favorite that just begged to be re-released.The latest incarnation of this popular design is made from incredibly durable and highly impact resistant polypropylene. Unlike wood, it’s extremely weather resistant, and withstands inclement conditions that would cause a conventional stick to crack, warp or rot. The Walkabouts handsome wood grain texture provides an excellent grip without sacrificing comfort or ease of use, and its simple one-piece construction makes it unbelievably tough while still remaining light enough to carry and use all day!
