Vilhelm Hertz is a small, Danish artisan company that creates beautiful handmade mobility aids using mainly natural, locally sourced materials. The Poker took its name from the black slenderness with the oak and its very clean design. The shaft is of solid carbon fiber, chosen because of its lightness, resilient properties, and its tremendous strength. The Oak handgrip is fashioned as a contrast between the black shaft and brace.
This crutch has a truly unique combination of aesthetics and strength. It can withstand being well used. The different versions mean that it can be customised for those who need very high stiffness in the crutch or for those who prefer high flexibility and elasticity.
Vilhelm Hertz also treats the oak parts of the crutch to create a "smoked oak" finish, which gives the tree a beautiful deep dark glow. The centre brace section is made of TIG-welded steel parts, which are subsequently black oxidized and linseed oiled.
Vilhelm Hertz crutches are made to order. They offer a full buyback guarantee after 6 weeks of normal use of their crutch/es if they do not meet the buyer's expectation of quality or functionality. They offer this service as it is essential that customers are 100% satisfied.
