A walking stick helps people better balance themselves while walking.

They come in many shapes and sizes and are used for multiple reasons. Some are used by people with disabilities as a crutch.

Others use it for hiking as support going uphill, brake going downhill or to clear thick bushes. Historically it has also been used as a weapon for defense.
