The Padrone Collection: Andromeda Pewter Walking Stick
One size does not fit all.
I ordered this walking stick for both costume and for general use. The pewter top is very attractive, and I have received many compliments for it. However, as it is too long to walk with comfortably at 37 inches long, I had intended to have it reduced in size. I hoped that the pewter tip would be removeable, but alas, it does not budge. Also, the wood used is incredibly light, resulting in very poor balance with such a heavy head. Perhaps I can find a shop that will be able to remove and replace the wood portion of this stick, but I am disappointed overall in the functionality of this otherwise attractive accessory.
