Brag Staffs

Cadusceus - Hand Carved for a Custom CaneHistoric Walking Stick Custom Carved Detail CloseupBrag staffs started with wittlers, usually soldiers, sailers, farmers or those with a little time to kill. They carfully carved a staff depicting their battles, voyages, a means to tell a story about their life.

The modern concept of a brag staff is much the same; its about showing off your skills, history, tidbits, facts, hobbies, or anything else you'd like to advertise on a stick!

Anyone with an interest can find a theme for a staff. Doctors can show their degree, their specialty, their achievements and perhaps even a caduceus.

Corporate Logo - Hand Carved for a custom cane used as an immunity staffFraternities, children, hobbies, work, any aspect of life. Even corporate themes such as this "immunity staff" given to the employee of the month as a creative symbol, relieving them from daily abuse while they poses's this empowered stick.
