Classic Canes - Ladies Kingfisher Adjustable Derby Walking Stick
A striking walking stick, patterned with colourful kingfishers on a bright blue background. The design is based on a hand-painted original by Classic Canes' managing director, Charlotte Gillan. The kingfishers, some of which are holding their catch, form a repeating design in kingfisher blue, orange and white, interspersed with bulrushes and the letters CC to denote a Classic Canes design. This cane is height-adjustable from 73cm to 95cm so it can be altered to fit a wide range of users. The shaft is high-quality aluminium, fitted with a non-slip rubber ferrule. It has a chrome collar and a derby handle, elegantly shaped to provide comfortable support. The ferrule size for future replacements is 16mm
- The walking stick user should stand upright, in the type of shoes they usually wear, with their arms hanging naturally by their sides.
- Another person should turn the walking stick upside down, so that the top of the handle is resting on the floor.
- Positioning the stick next to the user, make a small mark on the shaft of the stick level with the bump at the bottom of the wrist bone. Using a small saw, cut the stick at this point. This will mean that the user's arm will be slightly bent when they hold the stick.
