Walking/Hiking Sticks

(purchased two diamond willow walking sticks)

Hi Wayne, The sticks arrived this afternoon via the post and they are beautiful. They look even better than they did on your website. The quality is outstanding! One is for me and the other for my buddy. I recently had spinal fusion surgery, and she will be having a knee replacement in a few days. We will be putting the sticks to good use as we recuperate and get strong again. Thanks for your help in making sure they arrived safe. We will enjoy using them on many future rambles. Delna

Wayne, I received my second hiking stick today (704w), and it is as beautiful as the first. What a great introduction to my collecting and using walking/hiking sticks. Needless to say, your craftsmanship is outstanding, and I am delighted to be the caretaker of these two sticks. And yes, not only do they look awesome, they feel good to hold, admire, and walk with. I will watch your website for future sticks that just might need to come home to me! Take care, John

Good Morning Wayne; The stick arrived Friday morning. All my wife can say is "Awesome". The stick looks even better than in the photos. We have been talking about getting sticks for some time.

Wayne, I received the stick last night and brought it to my buddy. He loves it! I believe he's out and about today breaking it in walking in his neighborhood.

Hi Wayne, I received your walking stick today. I will have to say that it exceeded my expectations. It is special when your expectations are already high, and they are exceeded. What I am trying to say is that I am extremely satisfied. This walking stick may very well be the most comfortable one I have, and I have 10 now. I can see it being my favorite and go to stick for any excursion. Thank you very much. It has been a pleasure. Ron

Ben from Tuscaloosa, AL, USA...2010
Wayne, I received the sticks today. I am speechless. They are so amazing in person! The detail is far beyond what I expected. They balance perfectly in hand. I can't believe how light they are, but they still feel so strong. I will definitely be ordering from you again! Thanks so much! Ben

Alan from Livermore CA, USA...2010
Hi Wayne,
Picked up my new diamond willow walking/hiking stick today, superb workmanship! Like others have said, the pictures just don't do them justice - I can easily see the craftsmanship that you build into these beautiful "sticks". It's very durable and sturdy looking while very light in weight - looking forward to it's debut this coming weekend. Glad I happened onto your site, which btw has alot of useful and interesting information. Thanks again for an excellent product and great customer service.
BR, Al

Halley from Chicago IL, USA...2010
Wayne, I received the stick yesterday and it is beautiful. We are so pleased. It is exactly the gift we were looking for. The pictures on your website do not do your artistry justice. Thank you for everything you did to get it to us on time. Best, Halley

Mitch from Mission BC, Canada...2010 (purchased a maple stick)
Hello Wayne, I tried my new Wupen walking stick out yesterday for the first time. The knob on the top is just the right size to fit comfortably in my hand, and when I grip the stick a little lower, the smooth finish slides easily up and down between my fingers and palm. I am also impressed with the way it was packaged for shipment. You obviously took pains to make sure it would arrive undamaged, and the fact that you use only recycled packaging materials is commendable. I'm sure I'll enjoy many years worth of long walks with my new friend! Cheers, Mitch

Dave from Ellington CT, USA...2010
Hello Wayne, Received my Bonker & Stick today via USPS... They look and feel absolutely great. Thanks again...

Doug from Ororo ON, Canada...2010
Wayne, Hello, my stick arrived today safe and sound. It is stunning. The pictures don't do it justice!
Thanks again, Doug

Dave from Herber City UT, USA...2009 (purchased a bonker & a stick c/w steel tip)
Enjoyed my first hike with your stick today. I must say, I had high expectations and you neatly exceeded them. The stick and bonker have high utility and show craftsmanship elevating them to art. They are magnificent.
No less than four neighbors, everyone I ran into, commented, then ooooo-ed and awed, then asked me where I found it. I gave them your website.
Thanks again. - Dave

Lou from New Rochelle NY, USA...2009 (purchased 5 Wupen items)
Wayne, hello. My sticks arrived and are again, two works of art. I marvel at the detail of your work. Sanding and polishing is perfect and even the packaging is impressive. All these factors point to the pride you take in your work. That's five pieces so far and I'm sure there will be many more. In fact I'm eyeballing one of the new bonkers now. Keep them coming. I envy your work and your beautiful lake. What a joy it must be to live in such a paradise and produce a quality product. And I am confident you do not at all consider it work. Regards, Lou

Howard from Palm Coast FL, USA...2009
A quick note to say thank you....I just received the beautiful walking stick...It appears to have arrived in apparently good shape...Packing was excellent....
It truly is a "work of art"...The knob as you described it is magnificent...I am looking forward to using it and to showing it off..
Once again, thanks and it has been a true pleasure working with you..
My best to you and yours,

Bill from Lakeside MT, USA...2009
Hi Wayne, The stick arrived today and I am beyond happy. It's more beautiful than in the pictures and the height and weight are perfect for me.
Thanks again for a great transaction.
Warmest regards,

Darvis from San Jose CA, USA (purchased a diamond willow hiking stick)
Wayne, the stick arrived today. I have to say...it's not a walking stick...it's a work of art! Wow, this thing is beautiful! It's worth every dime it cost me! Thank you so much, my friend........Darvis

Rob from Liberty Township OH, USA (purchased a maple walking stick with triple spiral pattern)

This stick is much nicer than I imagined and much nicer than a photo could show!
Thanks again!!!!!

Dave from Fortuna CA, USA (purchased a maple walking stick with a very unique knob on the end)
Wayne, I received my walking stick this morning. All I can say is "WOW", very nice quality piece. I will most certainly enjoy. Thanks again....Dave

Jeff from Fort Thomas KY, USA
I've been like a kid waiting for Christmas hoping I'd see a long box at my door each day when I got home. My stick arrived yesterday and the anticipation of opening the box was as good as I can remember as a kid. Beautiful Stick! What can I say, I am very pleased and your work is excellent! I've been showing it off to all my friends and now they want one. Let me know when you have more up on your site and I'll send them your way.
Thanks again for suggesting this stick, it is indeed a very unique piece!

Jack from, Macungie PA, USA (purchased 2 diamond willow, 1 maple and 1 cedar walking stick).
Hi Wayne
Sticks arrived today - WOW!! Glad I found your site - excellent workmanship - am sure I'll be back for more - will make some great gifts.

Dennis from, Nebo NC, USA (purchased 2 diamond willow walking sticks).
Hi Wayne
Just wanted to let you know that the package with our sticks arrived yesterday. Both look great. The overall workmanship, finish and quality is wonderful. They are far superior to the one I purchased at a shop in Alaska last summer.
I especially like the darker color of mine and my wife was thrilled with the one you helped choose for her.
Thanks again,

Chris from Milford PA, USA
i got the stick yesterday, it's more like a work of art, thank you it's beautiful. i will be getting more.

Pete from Porland OR, USA (purchased 5 custom Diamond Willow sticks to present at a family reunion)
The well-packed sticks arrived intact today, and they look great. The two for my mom are well matched, and the one for my uncle looks particularly stunning. Thanks for doing such a fine job and getting them here early. Much appreciated!
Thanks again,

Chuck from Lee's Summit MO, USA (purchased 4 custom Red Alder sticks with carved patterns to present to family members)
Wayne - what beautiful work!!! Now I have a huge problem. I like them all so much that I can't decide which one to give to which brother, and which one to keep for myself. What fun it must be to do something that you make yourself and then sell. Thanks so much!

Heather from Louisville KY, USA
Hello, just wanted to let you know I received the walking stick on Monday! The stick is beautiful and I will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks! Thanks again.

Joshua (1st of 5 orders) from Terre Haute IN, USA

Good morning, Wayne,
I just wanted to let you know #108W made here to Seattle in good shape and as you said, it is a real beauty. Thanks again for your prompt mailing and nice packing. I hope to get many years of use of this fine stick. It was a real pleasure dealing with you and Wupen Walking Sticks. Thanks again,

Avalon from Sweet Valley PA, USA
Hi Wayne,
I received the maple walking stick. It’s even nicer looking than it looks on your web site. My husband likes it a lot. I think unique one-of-a-kind items make a great gift! I may get one for myself in the future.

Jim from Delta BC, Canada
Received the stick to-day. Looks just right, very nice. I think it will be in our family for some time. Thanks for everything,

We will be ordering again in the future.
Thanks very much,

Cathy from Denvor CO, USA
Hi Wayne - it's here! I love it! Can't wait to get out on the trail - a steep one! Thanks so much - this is very special!


John, from Portland, OR, USA...2014
Hi Wayne, The cane and talking stick arrived here Monday afternoon. What beautiful wood, and what elegant work ! The cane has already changed my attitude about needing one, because I no longer feel like just another crippled old man with a "drugstore special". I've only been using it for five days or so, and I am already getting more compliments than I know to handle. It's a bit humbling, actually, for after all it's just an object, right?
Take care, John

Tom, from Orlando, FL, USA...2014

Wayne, The cane arrived today. It was packed very well and I am very pleased with my purchase. Thank you, Tom

Bill, from Overland, CA, USA...2014
(purchased a diamond willow cane)
Hello Wayne…. Package arrived today. Thanks so much for the great and expedited shipping. Cane looks great and I am very satisfied with it. Almost looks to good to use outside though and that’s why I hope you have put me on your ‘walking staff’ waiting list. Thanks again for the great service. Bill

Jeff, from Antioch, FL, USA...2014

Michael, from Oak Forest, IL, USA...2013
(purchased a maple cane)

Hi Wayne, I received my custom Cain on Saturday the 13th and used it today Sunday the 14th as soon as I took it out of the box it far exceeded my expiations and the picture you sent me. It works great, perfectly sized and just looks amazing the different color variations are amazing. I got five compliments on it just today alone so I'm only expecting to get more the more I use it. I wanted to again say thank you for working with me on the basic design of the Cain but love how you made it your own. I love it and you are the man of hand made Cain's and hiking sticks please keep the coming as they truly are pieces of art and really show off your craftsman ship thank you again a customer for life. Michael

Ray, from Vancouver, BC, Canada...2013
(purchased a diamond willow cane)

Hello Wayne Received the cane today...it's a beauty...took 1 1/2" off though...I'd rather "lean" on it than "climb" on it. It was actually 37" from rubber bottom to top handle, but that gave me plenty of play to adjust...good lenght on my running shoes as my motorcycle boots...you're an artist. Thanks Wayne, Ray

Tom, from Bothel, WA, USA...2013
(purchased a diamond willow cane)

Your cane arrived today. You have done an outstanding job on this Wayne! Although the photos were excellent, they did not do the cane its proper justice. Although it is a little beefier than I had anticipated, I know it will far exceed anything I may have to put it through. If you ever need a reference as to the quality of your canes, please do not hesitate to put a potential buyer in touch with me. Thank you again Wayne. I really appreciate it! Tom.

Bill, from Overland Park, KS, USA...2013
(purchased a diamond willow cane, a bonker and a talking stick)

Hello Wayne……Wanted to let you know that I received your package today and everything arrived perfectly. Thanks a lot for your excellent packing job. Your canes are a work of art! My gosh, that diamond willow wood is absolutely gorgeous and looks so much better than I anticipated it would. My wife said I should not use it as a walking cane, rather mount it on the wall as a work of art. Wayne, you are a true artisan of fine wood working skills. Thanks so much and I'm sure I will have lot's of folks asking me about my cane so hopefully you will get more requests for your work from other Kansan's. Talking stick and bonker just as good as cane. Thanks again, Bill

John, from Port Charlotte, FL, USA...2013
(purchased a diamond willow cane)

Hi, Cane arrived safely yesterday. Very handsome, comfortable, and already much admired by the few in my retirement community who have seen it. Thank you, John

Rick, from Phenix city, AL, USA...2013
(purchased a diamond willow cane and a maple cane)

Wayne, Just wanted to let you know that I received the canes today... They are both amazing! My wife said that the term "beautiful" doesn't even begin to describe how gorgeous they are! I know that my Dad, and her Mom will love them. Thanks again, -Rick

Melissa, from Lancaster, PA, USA...2012
(purchased two maple canes)

Good Morning Wayne, we received the canes this morning, even more beautiful in person. Thank you so much for your quick shipping. This will help my husband greatly with walking. Regards, Melissa

Bill, from Weston, MA, USA...2012
(purchased maple staff & diamond willow cane with brass horse hame handle)

Yes, I have them. The walking staff is significantly lighter than the willow which I have and will be of use when my shoulders complain. The willow cane is incredible. The only drawback to it is that it slows me down because of all the people who stop me to compliment me on it. Thank you,

Jim, from Hokogen, NJ, USA...2012
(purchased diamond willow cane)

I received the cane today and it is absolutely beautiful. I will love it forever. Such great workmanship and selection of wood. I could look at it for hours. Thank you!

David, from Arlington, VA, USA...2012
(purchased stained willow cane)

I received the cane as well. The pictures don't do it any justice. Its a beautiful piece of work. I will know where to send people when the compliments start coming.
Thanks again, David

Val, from Dundas, ON, Canada...2012
(purchased alder cane)

Hi Wayne, Received the cane/stick today. Already took it for a "test walk" - I knew it would be the perfect height and weight, excellent work and the red alder makes a beautiful stick - especially in Ontario. Thanks! Val

Lois, from Beaumont, AB, Canada...2012
(purchased maple cane)

(purchased diamond willow cane)

Wayne, Cane arrived in perfect condition today. Like many others who have commented on your fine work, I must say that the cane looks even better than the picture. It must give you great happiness to have a hobby that provides so much pleasure to others. Thanks again. Best regards, Aubrey

Tom, from Colton, OR, USA...2011
(purchased diamond willow cane)

Hi Wayne, My diamond willow cane arrived in good shape. First I want to tell you that after I ordered my cane, I went out into our woods and looked at a few willow trees and made a walking stick and a bonker just for fun. After looking over the cane that you made I realize just how much skill, work, and time that it takes to make such a beautiful cane. This is a wonderful work of art. Thank you, Wayne. Tom

Howard, from Toronto, Ontario, Canada...2011
(purchased maple cane)

Hello, Wayne. In follow up to the order that I placed on July 6 for the diamond willow cane, I was finally able to deliver it to my Dad. Initially, he thought it was pretty nice but he wasn't planning to use it! Within a week though he began using it and now uses it diligently and loves it. Thank you. Sandi

Bronna, from Seatle, WA, USA...2011

Hi Wayne, I want to thank you for the beautiful cane, which I now have in regular use. The height is perfect! As you recall, I purchased cane #270. It is truly a beautiful piece of work and I am often asked about it. In appreciation of your craftsmanship... Rob

Richard, from St. Michael, MN, USA...2010
(purchased diamond willow cane)

I picked up the cane today and was impressed by both the packaging design and the cane itself. I'm a retired project engineer and I have done a lot of packaging design in the past. The packaging of the cane was excellent and it arrived in perfect shape. The cane was beautifully finished and crafted. Good job Wayne. You have really paid attention to detail and have produced a beautiful cane. Rich

Tom, from Lincolm, NE, USA...2010

I've felt like its been my birthday all day today...lol, I heard the mail truck coming and walked out in my footed pajama's to get the package, and I've been enjoying the cane all day today, I'm happy I found your site and did business with you, and can't wait for you to finish some new canes, I have a feeling this won't be the only cane I buy from you;-) thanks again, very happy customer .....Tom

Licia, from San Francisco, CA, USA...2010
(purchased diamond willow cane & walking stick)

Hi Wayne, I received the package on Wednesday. I used the cane that evening, and was complimented a few times. It really helps me walk with greater ease, and less fatigue. I haven't tried out the walking stick yet, but will this weekend. I'm impressed by the beauty of both the walking stick, and the cane. Thank you, Licia

Patrick from San Antonio, TX USA (2010)
Wayne, I just received and opened it up. I am really floored at how beautiful it is- even more so than the online picture! Thank you! Patrick

Karen, from Linden, AB, Canada...2010
(purchased maple cane)

Good Afternoon Wayne..Just thought I would send you a quick note to say that we received Mike's cane, and he is over the moon with it. His exact words were that it exceeds his expectations and he has already named it...Boss. Thank you so much for the care and attention that you put into making it for Mike. It is a beautiful piece of art.
...thanks again...Karen

Judy from Holland, MI, USA...2009 (purchased a one piece natural cane)
The Wupen stick arrived on Friday. It is absolutely perfect. No old lady device is this one! The handle is beautifully smoothed and very comfortable. I’ve received many comments on the beauty of the craftsmanship. I tell them where it came from. I also make sure they know it’s NOT a cane, it’s a Wupen Stick and any less than complimentary comments will get them a Wuppen! :)
Thanks again for the assistance with my rehab!

Alex from Albuquerque, NM, USA...2009
Wayne, I just wanted to let you know the canes arrived several days ago. Thank you very much. The canes reflect wonderful craftsmanship and I have received numerous compliments on their appearance. The metal tips look great; thanks for working with me on coming up with an alternative solution. I expect these canes to serve me well for many years to come.

Robert from Fort Washington MD, USA...2009
Thank you very much for allowing me to purchase Cane 235. The cane is absolutely beautiful, and I just wanted to commend you on facilitating a smooth transaction from start to finish. I am beyond satisfied. I will be leaving ultra-positive feedback on your website. I will be ordering another cane from you soon. Once again Thank you!
Cheers, Robert

Tina from Hemet, CA, USA...2009
Hi Wayne,
I got my cane today. I LOVE it! Thank you so much, it's exactly what I needed and really special. The bird on it makes it so unique and the diamond willow wood is beautiful. Truly a one-of-a-kind cane that I will use and treasure. The packing was fantastic, too. It got here in perfect shape.
Thank you again. It's wonderful. You do amazing work!!
Tina :o}

Dave from Panama City, Florida, USA...2009
Wayne, I received my Diamond Willow Cane on Saturday (April 25, 2009) afternoon. You did a superb job! I have already been putting it to use. People have commented about the uniqueness of the cane and complimented me on it's appearance and craftmanship! The credit, of course, is all yours.
I am completely and totally ecstatic with it appearance and functionality! You do some incredible work.
Thanks, Dave

TJ from Atlanta, Georgia, USA...2009
Wow! The cane is a real piece of art! I cannot believe how good it looks. The carving is so well done and the metal tip really adds to the finished product. Your canes are an incredible value!
Thanks so much. I will tell all my friends about your work!

Juan from Ponce, Puerto Rico
Wayne, the cane arrived today and it is in excellent conditions, I admire your craftmanship, I feel like a kid with a new toy, thanks for an excellent product and your prompt delivery, I'm very impressed and satisfied. I'll be ordering some more in the near future. Once again thank you...
Yours truly:

Bob from Apopka FL, USA (purchased two canes and a bonker.)
Hi Wayne,
I received your shipment today. WOW! Exquisite! Superior Craftsmanship! You are quite the artisan. Such beauty comes from the heart. I have 4 canes and a collection of several, very "nice" pieces (not your ordinary cane) along with several walking sticks and until today, only 3 that I would call works of "ART". I now have, 4 Extraordinarily beautiful gems. Your number 62a will give me much pleasure.
The bonker is my first, I am sure of many.
Many thanks,

Rudolph from Slingerlands NY, USA
Wayne -
The cane arrived today in excellent condition [you certainly had it packed with greatest care].
I like the cane very much; it is perfect, the length and the shape of the handle suit me very well. I also admire the finish and the burly wood is not only comfortable, but gives an unusual touch. I am glad that I found you on the Internet. And if I ever have other/more needs I may return.

I received my new cane on Thursday safe and sound. It is terrific. Much lighter than my old aluminum cane and since it is wood is has more give. The look is even better than the website shows. Thanks again for a great product. I will be sure to send people your way when they ask about my nice new cane.

Dennis from Lakewood WA, USA
Wow, The cane got here today. It looks even better than I had hoped. Your workmanship is phenomenal. The detail in burl wood in the diamonds is interesting to study.
The length is just right! I like the thick piece of wood you used for the handle. I have a big hand; the handle is just the way I would have custom made it. It is so nice when everything works out right.
I like your packaging. Thanks again for a good job on the cane.

Your beautiful cane arrived this morning, and I am delighted! It is just the right length. The grain is as lovely as it is fascinating to examine. Again, thanks very much for your work and for the ease of ordering! I'm looking forward to using your cane for a long time!
