Anatomy

A replica of his own walking stick, the Thoreau Walker is made from the same natural woods found around the pond at Walden.

Such a nice seller- a real pleasure to work with. The finished piece, which he made just as I asked, is lovely and strong and made a wonderful gift. It is well finished and pleasantly fitted. I am very pleased, and the recipient loved it. Thank you!

4 months ago, I received an unexpected FedEx box to my home from Vito. Inside was a handcrafted walking stick especially made for me. I was touched by his gift and artistic creativity.  I loved his creation so much that I ordered 8 of them for each member of my family.

My Walker is more art than stick. I receive compliments on it where ever I go. I have one for walking and am ordering another for decorating. Beautiful.

- JIM COPPERSMITH

Vito's Walkers are absolutely beautiful. His attention to detail, quality materials, and artist's eye make each Walker unique, physically striking and functionally strong.
