I have a couple from McCaffery. I bought one while in Ireland. One is smaller than the other, but both have the same basic shape. Well finished with the bulbous root portion polished. Easy to walk with and the larger one would make a formidable weapon if needed. If an Irish stick is what you are looking for, the McCaffery sticks get the nod from me. One thing I did do to one was to fit a rubber tip instead of the metal one on the other.

I just realized that I have one of those Brazzos sticks! Nicely done and easy to carry and use. Mine is just over five feet.

I like walking sticks myself and make my own, I have a old lemon tree that will be pruned very shortly. I usually get 5-6 pretty straight shoots when pruned. Lemon wood is very flexible and strong but because it's grafted to sour orange, the fruit is great but the thornes are deadly. I very carefully trim the shafts and let the wood dry through the summer with bark on. By fall, I have a strong 6 footer that is vey durable.I also coat it with epoxy and wrap the upper section with 550 parachute cord for a better grip. Fun to make and useful.
