Once you find this type of provider, be sure to look at the breadth of products they offer. Perhaps you would like a seat cane for special events like a child’s championship sports game, bird watching or just a walk in a park.
Also, it is never a bad idea to ask your doctor or medical professional about the available options and see what they recommend for your needs. If you are shopping a major walking cane manufacturer, share their catalog with your doctor and see what they have to say about the available options. Remember that shopping at a large store because they offer an adjustable walking cane that will fit your height is not a requirement. Any major cane retailer worth their salt should be more than willing to help you fit your cane, or teach you how to size a walking cane and adjust the height yourself.
This excellent system walking cane boasts an extendable spyglass as the handle that is made of brass. The handle is hand carved out of appealing dark red Mahogany in the shape of two folded hands that are actually holding the removable telescope. At the narrow end the lens cap of the spyglass can be unscrewed and it can be removed from the circular opening in the hands.
The telescope comes in working condition and the view is very good. The hand carving applied is of high quality and the bronze collar as well as two gilt copper collars at the upper end of the shaft, match the overall appealing look perfectly.
This is a must-have for the dedicated collector of instrumental or system canes!
Walking sticks have existed since the first Homo sapiens picked up a branch to help himself over rough terrain or to use it as a weapon. Civilized men carried on the tradition. From royalty and their use of the scepter to religious leaders and their use of pastoral staffs designed to look like a shepherd’s crook herding the believers, the walking stick has been an important symbolic accessory. Men in authority whether profane or religious have used the staff or walking stick as a symbol of their power at all times.
Some experts claim that the name “cane” arose from the fact that Cain, the son of Adam and Eve slew his brother Able with his staff thus “caining” him to death. In 1838 J. H. Ingram wrote in his essay on canes that in Roman times, dogs in great numbers have infested the streets of Rome. Because of this circumstance it became customary for pedestrians to go provided with stout birchen cudgels equipped at one end with a short, sharp pike to defend themselves against these animals. This cudgel was called “cani”, the dative singular for “canis” which meant literally “for a dog.” The plural of “canis” is “canes” and this is the precise denomination by which they are now known. The later non-historical use of the word cane arose from the fact that many of the sticks are canes in the botanical sense as rattan and bamboo. Malacca in the botanical sense is a cane too. Today the word continues to refer to exotic woods as well as to other materials………
