How Does this Walking Stick Protect My Knees?
Knee pain is generally caused by too much pressure being placed on a weak or unstable knees. By using a stick or crutch, you are improving your stability and taking the strain away from your knees.
A walking stick is a more affordable alternative to our offloading knee braces, which relieves pain in much the same way.
Which Knee Supports Would Work Well With This Walking Stick?
The knee support you purchase alongside the Gents' Hardwood Walking Stick will depend on your condition and its severity. If you have very unstable knees, you may want to pair this cane with a Hinged Knee Brace to further enhance stability.
However, if the walking stick provides all the stability you need, you might instead want to opt for a Compression Knee Brace for round-the-clock relief.
Elegant Design and Unrivalled Style
The beautifully scorched handle and varnished shaft of this walking stick are further embellished with a brass filigree collar. This gives the cane a unique touch and further enhances its smart style and sophisticated look.
Derby Handle Design
Reputedly the invention of an earlier Lord Derby, who wanted a supportive walking stick that he could also hook over his arm, this style provides excellent support and can be held in either hand. The user’s weight is carried directly over the shaft and the hand is perfectly supported, so it can neither slip forward nor back.
Hardwood Shaft and Handle
Both the shaft and the handle on the Gents' Hardwood Derby Handle Walking Stick are made from hardwood*. The handle has been scorched to highlight the pattern of the grain and the whole cane then varnished with a very high-shine brown varnish.
Hardwoods, as opposed to softwoods, have a more complex structure and are, as the name suggests, generally much harder. Another dominant feature separating the two types of wood is the presence of pores, or vessels, as well as the structure of the cell wall.
