Ambutech makes some very nice canes. They are sturdy, reliable, relatively attractive, collapsible, etc. I like their product ALOT.

I do not, however, like their Customer Service team. Several months back, I noticed I was having an extreme amount of difficulty with my vision. I hadn’t used a cane in a year or so, aside from the occasional night. I decided I needed to order a cane. First of all, their site is difficult. Second of all, the Customer Service acts like they are shipping us a toy and it’s not of any importance to us. They took almost a month to get me my cane. A MONTH! That’s kind of like one of my friends’ issues with her wheelchair company. She CAN walk but not very long nor far. The company took FOREVER for her to get her chair back to her, and it was a $48,000 chair. My cane was only $35 or so.. but it’s still like.. really… really?! It’s not like we need it or anything. Sheesh.

I’m hoping this cane, and my backup/old cane, last for most of my life because I really don’t want to deal with them again.. but because the product is so good I just may have to.
