Best Derby Canes

Monday, 6 November 2017

Whether you're looking for a fashionable cane to use as an accessory on evening occasions or a practical yet stylish everyday walking stick, a fixed-length casual cane or a foldable stick you can always carry with you, the Derby handle is one of the shapes you will likely come across most often. Rightly so, as this is one of the most practical, comfortable and elegant handles available on the market today. However, with so much choice out there it's difficult to know exactly which Derby cane to choose. Find out what we think the Best Derby Canes are here at WalkingSticks.co.uk!

Why Choose the Derby Handle?

When compared to the crook or the knob, the Derby handle might come off as a bit more modern, but that's not really the case. This walking stick design has been around since at least the 1400s and is still one of the most popular and widespread handles today.

Its shape makes it comfortable to hold and highly supportive, while the small hook at the end makes it just as practical as a crook, since you can easily hang it over your elbow, on the edge of a table, or even in a closet when not in use. Here at WalkingSticks.co.uk we store a broad range of various Derby canes, so you can definitely find the perfect one for you. To offer you a glimpse into the colourful and exciting world of walking sticks, and hopefully point you in the right direction, we've put together this selection of our own favourite Derby Canes.
