The telescope walking stick measures 38.75"L x 2"Dia. The polished knob on the top of the walking stick fits comfortably in the palm of one's hand. Rosewood of the finest selection is used for a slender, but eminently sturdy stick. A cleverly engineered mechanism allows the telescope to be pulled up and swiveled. Held up by the stick it can be aimed and pointed like a monocle. Do not forget to remove the cap. Yes, it magnifies...3x.
