    Thanks,

    Real easy way, found a local Boy Scout office, many will carry some pre-made staffs... also kits to make your own. Other way is to DIY using either tool handle from big box store, or get a 6' section of 1" dowel rod and add accourtments.

    Normally I use trek poles for hiking, but I do occasionally take my "Staff of many items" Boy Scout staff to Scouting events.

    Most Cracker Barrell stores also have walking staffs.
    .... the Aardvark (earth pig)... a rather unremarkable creature whose sole claim to fame is that it is the first animal listed in the dictionary.

    After I destroyed my ankle and was laid-up for several months, I made one out of a martial arts tapered oak bo staff.
    Real solid and I carved in a Celtic knotwork pattern for the hand grip area.
    Straight and solid.
    Just what I needed!

    Ocean State Job Lot has 'em for about $10-15. Nice looking staffs too.
    I was told there'd be no math on this exam. ~T.D.

    If you can find bamboo in your area, you can easily make a walking staff from bamboo. You need to find a section long enough (easy) and the right diameter (again pretty easy).

    Sand down the joins between sections. Make a hand grip using Amsteel - gray so that the dye doesn't dye your hand. Just wrap.

    Makes a great walking staff.

    I know at my local academy they have one wood walking stick, might be worth checking out so that you don't have to pay shipping

    Thanks for the input everyone. I think I'm going to use dkpurdue's idea and convert a martial arts staff.
