A walking stick or walking cane is a device that is generally used to facilitate walking, give postural stability or support, or assist in keeping excellent posture; however, some designs can also be employed as a fashion item or for self-defense.

Walking sticks exist in a variety of forms and sizes, and some have even become collectibles. Some walking sticks can be used as crutches by people with impairments. The walking stick has been employed as a defensive or offensive weapon in the past, and it may conceal a knife or sword — as in a swordstick.

Hikers use walking sticks, also known as trekking poles, pilgrim’s staff, hiking poles, or hiking sticks, for various reasons, including emptying spider webs or parting thick bushes or grass that are obstructing their path. A walking stick can be made from nearby felled wood. More elaborate sticks are produced for serious hikers, typically with tiny baubles or medallions symbolizing a “conquered” area. Outdoor activities, healthful upper-body training, and even club, department, and family monuments all employ wooden walking sticks. They may be manufactured from various woods and personalized in a variety of ways for the owner.

A rabologist is a person who collects walking sticks.

A sturdy rigid stick replaced the sword as an essential element of the European gentleman’s wardrobe during the 17th or 18th century, particularly as a walking staff. It continued to perform some of the functions of the sword as a weapon, in addition to its importance as a decorative item. Rattan with a rounded metal handle was the typical cane. The cloudy cane was constructed of malacca (rattan stems) and had a weathered appearance:

Metalwork on sure canes was carefully weighted. Other types of wood, such as hickory, can be used in the same way.

A hand strap is the most popular accessory, whether before or after purchase or manufacturing, to prevent the stick from being lost if the hand loses its hold. Instead of being wrapped around the stick, they are frequently threaded through a hole bored into it.

To stand a stick against the top of a table, use a clip-on frame or similar device.

A metallic cleat can be added to the cane’s foot in chilly areas. On the ice, this greatly improves traction. To avoid damaging interior floors, the device is generally built to be readily turned to the side.

Handles come in a variety of sizes to complement different grips.

On most terrain, rubber ferrules provide additional grip.

In Europe, Nordic walking (ski walking) poles are highly popular. These unique poles include fingerless glove-like straps, robust metal tips for off-road use, and replaceable rubber tips for use on pavement and other hard surfaces. The tension on the knees, hips, and back is drastically reduced while walking with two poles of the proper length.
