If you are on the fence about buying this item for ANY reason don't be! Let me explain...
I was in a horrible motorcycle accident that caused the loss of my left leg and put me in the position of needing a cane so I can learn to walk with my new prosthetic leg. I wanted something that was not looking like it came from a hospital but not overly flashy or fancy but looked stylish and well, looked like a man would carry. I go to the range a lot and like the woods, being outdoors. I also didn't want to break the bank either! This fit the bill!
This walking stick/cane is absolutely beautiful, I mean it. The walking stick was made to my custom length in the color I wanted with the animal head I wanted to adorn it. It's not too heavy but feels very solid in my hand and was just beautifuly crafted! I weigh 230lbs and the walking stick doesn't bow at all when I really lean on it! I am very impressed! And it also comes with a rubber end so you don't slip on tile floors. Today I had to go to the store with my wife and received several comments on its appearance while we were shopping! I actually gave one guy the URL to the Amazon page where I purchased this from, he said he was interested in maybe getting one for his father. And it doesn't make you look old either! It's really nice looking!
The wood is really nice along with the finish and as stated previously the animal head and Celtic weave band really look sharp on the stick. I will purchase from and recommend this vendor again to anyone looking for an item such as this. It's really worth every penny spent, you're NOT wasting your money. I believe the actual time for this order was just over three weeks when Amazon is still saying July 1st for an arrival date! NO REGRETS HERE! I AM VERY HAPPY!
The cane came 3 weeks before the due date yet still waited 2 months to the day. Trust me on this. Outstanding craftsmanship from top to Bottom. The wolf pommel is cast so well and monted perfectly to the cane itself. I have been collecting canes for 25 years and this one is now at the top of the list. Comfort, weight, color, pommel and length, perfect ! I have been looking for this very cane for over 25 years and have finally found it. In the movie: The Wolfman staring Lon Channey Jr.he carried this very wolf pommel cane. The movie was set in the Carpathen Mountains the very place that she was made. How cool is that ? I waited 25 years to find this cane, you can wait the 2 months it takes to make and to ship it to you. You will thank me and your back will thank you for taking good care of it. It's also awesome for self defense because of the heavy pommel. Solid, not hollow.
Just received my cane yesterday. Everything as advertised. Well built and made like a fine piece of furniture. Contacted the company to ask a question and was answered back in less than a day. I waited approximately 6 weeks for the cane and the wait was definitely worth it. Look no further for a well made piece of art. I’m 6’2’’ and 200 lbs. This cane gives me the confidence enough to put my full weight on it with no worries. This cane is worth twice the money they are charging. Could not be happier with this purchase.
A little darker than I thought it would be and that gives it a more "formal" appearance. The handle is flawless with the wolfs head attached very securely. I was happy to see that this was a young artisan trying to sell his quality designed and built products on Amazon. Nicely done, sir!
I needed a cane to help me with my bad right leg, I looked at a lot of them, but when I came across the ones made by Alex from Aster and Sparkis I knew this was the one. Alex contacted me when I acquired about the wolfs head on the cane. The one I wanted was shown on another model and not listed for the one I wanted, not a problem , Alex made sure that I received the figure that I wanted on the cane I wanted, he even sent me a photo of one he was working on that was not published yet. Now that is what I call personal service. I love my cane it looks richer in person and it is extremely well made, you can't go wrong with this product, I will not buy from another craftsman, these canes are not mass produced and it shows it.......Best product for the money........Ronald A.
