Most these walking sticks are made from stone and acrylic. The handle is made from solid stone which has a great look and what is also good and the stone handle is that it is always cold to touch no matter what time of year. The shaft or shank of the walking sticks are made from acrylic which is a material endless colours and designs to choose from. al have a collar on the joint to and strenght to the joint.
The only down side to these walking sticks are that they are a bit heavy but for a handle made from real stone you don't mind that much. We try to keep the handle size to a minimin but you don't to unset the look of the walking sticks with a very small handle.
