Here in florida the makings for these walking sticks are fairly easy to come by. I use walking sticks and staffs because of a bad back, they are actually more for when I'm standing still than walking, this one will double as protection or as a zombie basher
Step 1: find your materials
often found around golf courses and middle class neighborhoods duffer sticks turn up in the trash fairly regularly, occasionally you'll find a dufferstick with a useless metallic growth on one end that needs to be removed, often they will have upto a dozen other sticks with various mutated ends in a tall cylindrical container with bumps on the side that protects the duffer fruit, the round fruit of the duffer comes in a lot of colors from basic white to glow in the dark, it's difficult to predict what color you'll find.
You will also need a dremel or other cut off and sanding tool, a dril with appropriate sized bit and some form of adhesive
