My stick is a beauty. I'm so pleased with your work Kathy. I love my purple butterflies. To those out there contemplating ordering a walking stick, they ship anywhere in the world. And you'll be quite pleased with what you receive. Quyanna (thank you) Kathy.

Kathy I just received my sticks and I love them, I can’t believe I got them so fast all the way from New Zealand. For the money I paid and the quality of these sticks and a 7 day delivery I can’t ask for anything more. Thank you.

Hi Kathy. I just picked up the walking stick today from the post office after work and it is gorgeous!!!! The pictures on the site just did not do it justice. You do such beautiful work. Thank you so much. I know my Mom is going to love it and it arrived just in time for her birthday party this coming weekend. I know she will treasure it and pass it down through the generations as "Nana's walking stick". I hope you have a wonderful day and thanks again!
Best Regards, Kim

Welcome to Carved Wooden Walking Sticks, the home of unique decorative walking sticks, wooden walking sticks carved in traditional New Zealand Maori designs and exotic hiking sticks. Michael and Kathy make the decorative hiking sticks and the hand painted and decoupaged hiking sticks are done by Kathy. Whether you call them walking canes, walking poles or hiking sticks, we hope we can offer you something different from the usual fare.
The picture shows just a small range of what we make. To see the full range, with full details, please click on the menu at the left or click on the picture to take you to the products page.
All these stylish walking sticks are made from hardwood. In the Maori culture, walking sticks are known as Toko Toko (walking sticks) or Rakau Korero (talking sticks) and they are generally decorated with carvings representing an ancestor or a legend. When the Maori have a hui (meeting) on the Marae (meeting place) the men carrying the Toko Toko are generally recognised as being orators and having the authority to speak. These natural wood walking sticks are ideal for hikers and social walkers. Any one of them or all of them would make an exciting addition to a walking stick collection.
Our walking sticks and hiking sticks are bought by collectors and recreational walkers and we have many happy customers who have become our friends all over the world. Harvey from Thames writes:
Hi Kathy and Michael,
We have returned home after our eleven weeks away cruising overseas and I thought you might like to know that I took YOUR stick with me out of my 200 plus. It served me well and hasn't even got a scratch mark on it. It has tramped the streets of Fiji, Apia, Pago Pago, Raratonga, Papaeete, Boro Boro, Moorea, Honolulu, Maui and Hilo. San Francisco, Victoria, Kectican and Juno Alaska, Petropvlosk in Russia, Osaka and Nagasaki in Japan. Beijing and Shangahi in China, Hongkong, Nga Trang and Ho Chi Min Citi in Vietnam and also Cambodia as well as Singapore, Darwin and Sydney. We had a wonderful time and I only came home with 8 more sticks .....
Above all, do not lose your desire to walk. Every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness. I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it. – Soren Kierkegaard
