Parts of a walking stick
The walking stick structure has four parts:
It is the part where the hand holds the stick. It can be made of different materials: wood, acrylic, metal…
The usual forms are: Curved (A), Hook (B), T form (C) and S form (D).
It is usually made of metal, it has a decorative purpose but its principal function is to join the knob with the stick.
It is the central part of the walking stick. Usually it goes joined to the knob with an iron pin. It is made of wood, bamboo or aluminium.
This is the part where the stick touches the ground. Almost all the walking sticks have the pointer made of rubber but it can also be made of metal or horn.
We recommend the customers that for a better usage of our products, to take the walking stick by the central part of the knob so the pressure will be made in the most possible vertical position. Never made the pressure on one end of the knob, doing in the correct way you will avoid the lever effect that could damage the resistance of the knob or the joining of the two parts: knob and stick.
Please try to avoid a bad use of the walking stick, it isn’t a weapon, it cannot be used to hit anything or anyone.
The continuous falling of the walking stick can erode the firmness of the knob and/or of the wood stick. These fallings can be avoided by the use of some straps that are held to the stick and to the wrist.
Please change the rubber pointer when you detect that they are worn so the walking stick will maintain the maximum adherence.
There are walking sticks that are for decorative purposes and are not recommended for daily use. Please get sure of the use for which you want the walking stick before buying it.
