As walking cane trends become more and more varied, consumers have begun looking for ways to add more style and class to their canes. They want something that fits their personal sense of style and is representative of their personality. For those reasons, the custom cane has become a popular choice for many. There are many advantages to having a cane custom made for you. It is definitely worth the higher price tag to get something that you love; after all you will most likely be using this accessory every day.
Although you can sometimes find other materials, custom canes are generally made of wood. Oak, walnut and maple are among the most popular and common woods used in cane design, but you can also find some more exotic woods as well. Rosewood, hickory and palmwood as well as ebony and bubinga are examples of the rare woods that can be carved into a custom cane. The handles are made from an even larger variety of materials. They can be made from wood as well, but for a classier look they are often made from brass, gold, nickel or Lucite.
Along with the choice of materials, you can also choose from different designs. The shafts can be decorated with intricate designs and patterns. Most companies that make custom canes will offer you a few choices of patterns such as a diamond pattern or a swirl pattern. Some companies will even give you the option of creating your own design. You can also decorate the shaft of your cane with your initials. You can choose from several fonts. The handles come in several styles, such as derby and orthopedic. They also come in many designs. For example, you can have the handle carved into animal heads or any other intricate design of your choosing.
One of the greatest advantages of custom canes is that you can have them sized perfectly. Most canes come in set heights and if you want them changed you have to cut them or have them cut down for you. Custom canes, on the other hand, are made for your particular height and weight. In order to make sure that you get the right size, you will want to be measured appropriately. You can also ask your doctor for recommendations. To measure for the proper cane height, wear the shoe that you wear most frequently and stand as erect as possible. Allow your arms to fall at your sides naturally. You should not lean forward or raise your shoulders at all. Have someone measure from the crease of your wrist bone straight down to the floor. Add 1 inch to that measurement when choosing a length of walking cane. If you are over 70 years of age, you may want to add 2 to 3 inches to that measurement. The reason for this is that around the age of 70, we usually begin to lose height, but only in the upper body, not in the legs.
Having a custom cane made for you will ensure that you get exactly what you want. You will be using this cane frequently, so you want something that is made of high quality materials so that it will endure all of the use you require of it. You also want something that compliments your sense of style, so that you will love the look and style of it. Custom canes allow you to create something that truly is a part of you.
