For Sale is this Hand Carved Walking Stick. This stick's carved image is recently carved, however, it is carved on VINTAGE OAK WOOD. This Oak Wood stick was acquired from a friend of mine who used it for hanging tobacco leaves to dry on his family farm. These sticks are many generations old and are rich in history. He tells a story of his Grandmother using these sticks as walking sticks when she was working the farm along side of her husband. The farm no longer grows tobacco and there certainly is no tobacco odor on these sticks for those who may be concerned. The sticks are remarkably strong and I am amazed at it's strength each time I carve on one. These sticks posses a mystical quality with a wonderful positive karma and when they are carved, It is like the stick is telling me what it wants to be. Perhaps the wood is tired of holding the weight of tobacco leaves and in it's retirement it is craving the need to show off it's beauty!
Each walking stick is perfectly imperfect which may include worm holes, grooves and dents, however each stick was hand picked for it's character, light weight and it's remarkable strength. The lenght may vary for each stick, however, each is Cleaned, Sanded Smooth and Coated many times with Tung Oil to preserve and accent it's beautiful features. An added uniqueness to some of these walking sticks is a secret compartment that holds a special message. This compartment may also be used to hold a small item needed on your walk or hike. Each stick is signed and dated by the artist.
