Hand-crafted from the bloom-stalk of the Dasylirion Leiophyllum, you will find these great hiking staffs to be lightweight and very strong.¶
Found in the desert Southwest, the Sotol produces a magnificent bloom-stalk 6 to 10 feet high each Spring. Once Mother Nature is done, Whistle Creek harvests them, leaving the plant to produce another walking stick the next season.¶
Each Sotol Hiking Staff is hand selected, carefully cleaned, dried and sanded, finished with a smooth lacquer coat and fitted with long-life rubber tip, leather wrist strap and descriptive hang-tag.¶
Most have a slight natural bow to them.¶¶¶¶
What Size Stick is for Me?
Hiking sticks should be 6″ to 9″ above your elbow to help you get down a hill (you need to reach). Walking sticks and canes are different. First, place your arm to your side with the elbow slightly bent. The top of the handle on the stick should be at the break in your wrist. All of Whistle Creek’s sticks can be shortened by removing the rubber tip, sawing off what is not needed and then replacing the tip. Orthopedic patients should consult their physician.
