Walking Cane Manufacturers Offer Larger Selection of Canes

Offer Larger Selection of Walking CanesSo what is the perfect cane? Well the answer to that depends on your needs. Walking canes and sticks come in a variety of styles, with vast options that will suit any person, condition or style. Whether you are looking for a folding cane that provides a convenient design as well as a great look, or you would rather have a basic, wooden model that is renowned for its resiliency and lasting fashion (or latest fashion trends?), finding a walking cane manufacturer that can provide you with everything you want will offer much more than purchasing the first thing that you come across at the store.

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.

Most walking cane manufacturers can provide you with the specifics you are looking for like custom made walking cane or a manufacture selling walking cane parts like walking cane handles, walking cane shafts, brass walking cane collars and rings to accent your walking cane. They can also supply walking cane accessories like rubber tips, wrist straps and other walking cane aids.

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.

Customize Walking Canes by the Walking Cane Company

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. Maybe you have an idea for a custom walking cane or stick, had a recent surgery and a few left over parts, I promise I won’t pass up the next chance.

custom deer antler walking cane 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. The deer antler was capped off at both ends with ebony wood with a steel rod for strength; I used a brass transition to an ebony shaft which I think turned out very well. Eventually an Attorney Spokane, WA bought this cane for this collection.

Walking Cane Company extra strong walking canes are made by us and sold exclusively by us and there is a big difference between ours and what other suppliers sell which is generally manufactured by Royal Canes and are only one inch in diameter at the top of the shaft, and lacks any taper to the rubber tip, so basically it looks like a log/stick with a handle compared to ours which are one and a quarter inch thick and tapers down to one inch at the rubber tip, this gives the appearance of a normal walking cane when used by a larger person.  Don’t be fooled by other companies so called extra strong walking canes and their claim to support up to a five hundred pound person.

You Want a Green Walking Cane?

Green Walking Cane - First in a Series of Colorful Walking Canes

ME: Please explain to me again what color you want your cane to be?

Customer: I want a bright green walking cane; I wear a lot of green and think it will go well.

Me: I have actually been thinking about a line of walking canes in bright color so this can be the first one.
After a lengthy conversation with my customer here is what we came up with, a natural red oak handle with a bright green shaft and brass ring. The stain is actually a dye which soaks into the wood and does not sit on top of it like paint, which makes it a very durable finish with nothing to chip off. This green walking cane is the first in a series (yet to be named) of primary colors; the other colors will be red, blue, yellow, orange, purple and black.

Using a Walking Cane for Self-defense – Man bloodied with own walking cane

Over sized walking cane -Extra strong weight supporting walking cane
Extra strong walking cane compared to our normal size walking cane

I came across this article (below) this morning and it’s something I thought about for some time. I have a few customers who buy extra strong walking canes to defend themselves, or by having a stout walking cane might make a potential assailant think twice about harming you. This reminds me of a few words my father once told me, “If you bring a weapon to a fight you better be prepared to use it, because if you’re not willing to use it on someone there is a good chance someone will use it on you”.  Of course I am not saying the gentlemen in the article below had this intension, but being out late at night makes you wonder why?

Man Bloodied with own Walking Cane

By: Mike Aldax | 11/21/11 8:38 AM

A man was viciously beaten with his own walking cane Friday, police said.

The victim’s head was gushing blood when cops found him at the corner of Precita Avenue and Folsom Street, in the area of Precita Park.

One of two goons approached him around 1:20 a.m. and sprayed his jacket with a spray can. The victim yelled at the suspect, demanding to know why he did it, police at Ingleside Station said.

The suspect then snatched the victim’s cane and struck him several times in the head. The victim fell to the ground, but the thug kept beating on him with the cane and kicking him repeatedly, police said.

The suspects fled. The victim was not listed as having life threatening injuries, police said.

A motive for the attack was not immediately known.
