The iconic walking stick has a much deserved place in history. After all, every culture has their own classic interpretation of the quintessential walking stick.
A good stout stick was an everyday accessory and tool. From the city gent to the hard-working farmer, every man had a stick!
These awesome tools were once incredibly commonplace, but sadly carrying a stick fell from popular fashion. We’ve long championed a revival of this practice and we’ve worked hard to try and encourage people to bring back this once-great tradition!
The walking stick is so much more than just an aid to stability for the injured, ill or infirm. As any hiker or outdoorsman will tell you, it’s also an excellent tool for traversing rough, slippery, uneven and treacherous terrain, a useful pointer or probe.
Cold Steel has earned great acclaim for our Walking Sticks. Our innovative and highly durable modern polymer products have been a huge success, and we’re proud to see a resurgence in the amount of people carrying and using sticks every day.
The Walkabout was a much loved classic from our earlier line up. A fan favourite that just begged to be re-released.
The latest incarnation of this popular design is made from tough, durable and highly impact resistant polypropylene. Unlike wood, our polymer is extremely weather resistant, and withstands inclement conditions that would cause a conventional sticks to crack, warp or rot.
Its handsome wood grain texture provides an excellent grip without sacrificing comfort or ease of use, and it’s simple one-piece polypropylene construction makes it deceptively tough while still remaining light enough to carry and use all day!
Good looking enough for daily use in the city, and tough enough for hiking, camping and outdoor pursuits, the Walkabout is a proud new addition to our beloved walking stick series.
