Description: A crude walking stick formed from a single piece of wood. The handle protrudes from the stick at a right angle. Tape is wound around the stick below the handle and was originally held in place by a nail. It has a dull polished finish and the wood retains a natural finish. There is a dark brown spot on the end of the handle, which resembles a dog.

A walking stick is a tool used by many people to assist walking. Walking sticks come in many shapes and sizes, even leading some people to collect them. This walking stick may have been hand made.
