It's a walking stick
Does exactly what it says on the tin. Helped me get around for a few weeks after I dislocated my knee. A cheaper alternative would be any strong stick you might find in the forest. I would suggest an attractive spruce sanded smooth and treated with linseed oil to really bring out the grain. The downside to this option is that you would look like Gandalf.

Basic but fine
It’s pretty basic – the handle is hard plastic and quite small. But fine for occasional use. The black colour is inconspicuous, which is good. One gripe: I wish Argos would use labels that peel off easily. It was really difficult to get the label off – very fiddly and left scraps of paper and lots of glue on the stick. It’s likely that people needing a walking stick might also not be very dextrous so please can you use something a bit easier to remove in future?
Heat the sticker. Use a blow dryer or heat gun on the lowest setting. Heat the entire sticker for a few seconds, then point it at one corner. Keep heating as you continue to the next step.
Keep the blow dryer two inches (5 cm) away from the wood, and the heat gun at least 3 inches (7.5 cm) away. Heat for no more than 10–15 seconds. Too much heat can damage wood finish, or cause the sticker to leave a stain.
Lift with a smooth, flat object. A plastic credit card or scraper is safest for the wood. If the wood isn't valuable or antique, you're probably safe with a putty knife, artist's palette knife, or non-serrated, thin butter knife. Scrape the edge of the sticker gently to lift it, at the corner being heated. If it doesn't work, move on, but keep the tool handy.
If you are handling a valuable or antique piece of wood, use your fingernail instead.
If your knives are too thick to get under the card, cut a square of plastic from the middle of a plastic container lid.
Pull off with tweezers as you heat. Once you have one edge lifted, grasp it with tweezers or needle-nose pliers. Bend this 180º and gradually pull the sticker. For fragile wood, pull across the wood grain to avoid picking up fibers. Angle the blow dryer as you do this, softening the glue as you go. Do not try to rip the sticker off, or you could end up with a more difficult paper backing stuck to the table.
Continue on to either section below to remove any glue that's left.
Method 2 -
Clean stickers off with white vinegar. Soak a paper towel or cloth in white vinegar. Lay it over the sticker and let it sit five minutes. Gently peel off the sticker using your fingernail or tweezers.
Use a damp cloth for product labels. Product labels on furniture and toys can usually be dissolved with a damp cloth. However, do not add water to stickers that come on sheets for peeling off and pressing on. These pressure-sensitive stickers can become more firmly attached when exposed to water.
Don't soak the wood, or you could swell the grain and cause damage.
Use a commercial glue remover. If the cloth doesn't work, try a product such as Goo Gone, Goof Off, 3M General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner, or cleaning products that contain citrus oil. Use just enough to wet the sticker. Give plastic or foil stickers a couple minutes for the product to soak through, or try to lift the edge and apply an additional drop underneath. Once wet and soft, attempt to peel or scrape it off as before.
Read the label instruction first to make sure the product is safe for wood.
Try petroleum jelly or a vaporizing rub instead. These can take up to eight hours to penetrate and soften the adhesive, so this is only worth doing if it saves you a trip to the store. Once soft, scrape the sticker and goo off. Add a few drops pure, concentrated dish detergent to the remaining residue. Rub it in to make a paste, then wipe off with a paper towel.
Dampen with oil. Alternatively, you can use a vegetable or plant oil (particularly eucalyptus oil) or a low-strength mineral oil such as WD40 or baby oil. Dab a few drops over the sticker, let sit a couple hours, then attempt to scrape off. Plant and mineral oils can have different effects, so you may wish to try one of each, separately.
This can darken the color of unfinished wood. This is not harmful for most wood — and may even improve its lifespan — but you may wish to apply oil to the rest of the wood so it matches. Use a product intended for the purpose, not the oil you just used.
Apply powerful solvents cautiously. Consider these chemicals a last resort, as they can potentially damage some wood finishes and paint. Use them only in well ventilated areas or outdoors, since the fumes are toxic and most are quite flammable. Test the product on a corner of the wood first to make sure it's safe.
Lighter fluid is usually safe on paint, and evaporates quickly from the wood. It can still damage some finishes.
Paint thinner's probably the next safest bet, but will damage many finishes. Make sure to test in a corner first.
Acetone or acetone-based lacquer thinner will destroy lacquer and plastic-based wood finishes — in other words, most of them.
Rubbing alcohol is an absolute last resort, since it can dissolve through most lacquers and damage the wood underneath

The Adjustable Folding Walking Stick is made up of 4 sections which slot together. You simply unslot the parts, then fold the sections (there is a cord inside which will try to make the sections straighten out again, but the stick comes with a plastic loop which you slide over the folded stick to keep it together).
I hope this helps. :)
