You can have one made at a wood carving shop in KONA VILLAGE on Ali'i Drive. I forget name of shop but it's owned by SALUTE - her name (which means Charlotte lol ). And relatives. They're very nice. Just go inside Kona Village and go into the wood carving shop(s). I think both are of same owner, a family. I suspect next recommendation might be better but you could talk to both parties, start with Salute's.
ALSO - and this might be better. Filipino older man makes them and other carved objects, he has booth at market on Wednesdays by Sheraton Hotel near Keauhou. He makes some beautiful hand carved walking sticks. I saw one someone had bought, made of HEMP and so light !!!! Over 6 feet long. That was $100 and I wish I had bought one exactly like it.

I'm trying to remember name of the man/carver. I recall now his first name is ERNIE. He has a shop near the City of Refuge I think it is. Anyway I'll try to find his name and phone # for you.
Happy to help, I LOVE this subject, hand carved walking sticks. - Harry A2
Meanwhile you might check out (and price and think what type of wood you might prefer) Salute's shop in Kona Village.
