Both seasoned hikers and casual strollers will enjoy the Sassafras Walking Stick. Sassafras makes for a strong - and relatively lightweight - staff. When finished, the beautiful bark takes on an orange-red hue resulting in a walking aid that's both functional and attractive. Each piece of sassafras is meticulously chosen, prepared, cut, and sanded. Finally, each stick is sprayed with a protective clear coat lacquer - the result is a smooth finish that magnifies the wood's innate beauty.
