The Granite Chief Walking Cane is a significant geographical feature in the Lake Tahoe basin that draws climbers from all over the world. The peak is the highest point in the Granite Chief Wilderness and is the inspiration for The Granite Chief's wooden walking cane. Inspired by the great outdoors, this wooden walking stick was crafted to support you on all life’s adventures. If you're looking for a special walking cane, The Granite Chief is expertly crafted, creating a one-off everyday hiking stick you won’t want to go without. The design is classic and simple, featuring a crook handle and sturdy shaft. The bird's head horn adds a touch of class, while the top and bottom grips add to the functionality and style of this wooden cane. Each walking cane or hiking stick comes with a standard black rubber cane tip.

How long does it take for my cane to be produced?
All of our canes are fully customized. It takes roughly two weeks for us to cut the cane, sand, stain and finish the cane before we get it ready to ship.
How much do the different wood types Weigh?
Weight will slightly differ from cane to cane. That being said, our canes weigh between 1.6lbs and 2.6lbs with Oak 7/8" being at the bottom of the range and Octagonal Thumper Stock Hickory and Octagonal Pure Hickory Heart being at the Heavier end of that range.
What wood type is the strongest?
We look at strength of wood types by the density of the wood. We can calculate it by looking at its specific gravity — dividing the weight of a volume of the wood by the same water volume. A higher number usually means that it is a denser and more robust wood. The number is most useful as a comparison between different species of woods.
- Hickory has a specific gravity of 0.7
- Oak has a specific gravity of between 0.63 and 0.68.
What is the benefit of a Palm Rest?
The Palm rest is a big benefit because it allows you to distribute weight throughout the cane while utilizing it. For people with a back pain, arthritis, bad knees or hips can find a lot of benefit by finding better comfort while using the cane.
Does the Octagonal cane have an Octagonal Crook?
No. The crooks on octagonal canes have a round crook.
