I was once asked to build a custom walking cane, but this fellow had a most unusual request, he had a hip replacement done and was able to keep his ball part from the surgery and was wanting me to mount that to be used as a walking cane handle, I thought about it for a second and turned down the job mentioning I didn’t want to handle anyone’s bones plus the idea just grosses me out. In retrospect he would have been able to get a few more miles out of it.
Custom walking canes is one of my specialties; over the past 13 years I built several hundred, below are some of my recent examples with brief description.

A customer of mine purchased these two antique Ivory walking canes from an auction site, as usual the shafts were old and non-functioning so I replaced them. The Scull was mounted on a simple stick and really looked like it did not belong there, so I did an interesting mount which also helps prevent damage to the scull by giving it plenty of support.

This deer antler walking cane wasn’t made for anyone I just had this antler and was wanting to do something with it so I came up with this idea.

Eventually an Attorney Spokane, WA bought this cane for this collection.

Do you want to distinguish yourself in the world of men’s fashion? Get a custom walking cane!
You know that fedora hats are the hottest fashion item among young people — not only just among men, but also among women. Fashion-conscious people are looking into fashion history, and selecting something “new” from the past and taking it into a new era. The Art Deco style was the main inspirational source of the late 20th to the early 21st century. Now, following the revival of Victorian fashion thanks to Steampunk and Gothic fashion movements, fashion canes are slowly, but steadily, gaining ground.
In the past, it was just a fashion statement of these minority groups, but, as the Anime generation grew up, entered the mainstream, and became the driving force of the fashion world, more and more men started incorporating an custom walking stick into their overall look.
Look at the picture at the top. He is in formal wear, and the cane naturally fits his style, but it is still not a traditional choice. The picture on the left is a more contemporary look. He is wearing a nice, well-cut suit, but has added a hat and a cane as his fashion statement. You can bet that he will get quite a bit of attention at a chic nightclub scene! The guy on the right is more casual, and you may find him at a corner coffee shop. His simple cane accentuates his meticulously “casual” look (but OK, he may be wearing $300 designer jeans).
You can’t describe the beauty of a custom walking cane without holding one in your hand and walking with it. If the custom walking stick is not a part of you, it is not worth owning. It is your fashion statement. It represents your taste, your intelligence, your lifestyle, and you. Take your time, look at many as you can; take the cane in your hand, if you can. You will find the one meant just for you.
