Custom Walking Sticks & Canes – Perhaps the most unique array of custom canes and walking sticks available today, these make the perfect gift for someone who requires or simply enjoys a helping hand while walking or hiking. Each is signed and one-of-a-kind, offering an individual the opportunity to express their own personal statement by the staff they carry. Custom insignias can be carved, whittled, embossed, sculpted, painted, or burned into the finished stick. These include family trees, crests, favorite designs, fraternity letters, business logos, flags, banners, sayings & slogans—almost anything one might desire.
Master Craftsman Stanley D. Saperstein specializes in producing a walking stick that contains as many personal distinctions as possible. Staffs are commonly topped with a whittled sculpture. Examples include bear heads, eagles, wolves; the likeness of Lincoln, Lee, Grant, even Gerri Garcia, Puxatony Phil, or Yoda!

Artisans staffs include the option of diamond willow, custom carved from willow saplings collected throughout damp, cold sections of Alaska and Minnesota. Shown below, the rarest staffs burst with diamonds encompassing the entire surface.
Collectors who boast ownership of Artisans staffs in their possession include the famous author and walking stick collector George H. Meyer, author of "American Folk Art Canes." Around the country the popularity of cane collecting is growing; Forbes Magazine has recently reported a great art investment - American Folk Art Canes. These pieces of 1800 to 1930 Americana have soared in value in the past few years.
