The Knob Handle Walking Stick is designed for those who like their weight supported in the middle of the hand with the fingers around the head of the stick. The shaft is a red hardwood which may be Bluegum, Redgum, Rose Gum or other depending on availability. The knob is crafted from 5,000-year-old ancient Redgum, joined to the shaft with a spigot joint and with fine Huon Pine and Jarrah decorative stripping. The length of the shaft which will be a minimum of 91.5cm can be adjusted by removing the rubber tip, cutting to the desired length and replacing the tip. For the optimal length, the handle or knob should reach the inside crease of your wrist with your arm held straight down.
The story behind our Ancient Redgum products is a fascinating one. This beautiful, black, shiny timber has been carbon-dated at more than 5000 years old, pre-dating the ancient civilisations of Greece and Rome and the building of the pyramids. Giant Redgums which grew along the banks of the Murray River, toppled into the gravelly stream as it changed course and undermined the banks. The trees, over the centuries, absorbed the minerals and chemicals of the mud and gravel, turning from red to black and hardening in the process, delivering a sheen like a polished stone to the finished products of this marvellous material. All the timber used in these products has been carbon-dated and each item comes with a certificate of authenticity from the Museum of Victoria plus quality packaging that includes the story of the Ancient Redgums.
Equally stylish for a man or a woman, this walking stick is the essence of elegance.
