#1. Wooden handle umbrella VS Metal handle umbrella


At first, I would have expected the wooden handle will gain more weight for the umbrella because I thought the wood is solid.

However, there is not much difference.

The wooden handle umbrellas’ weight is around 1 pound to 1.5 pounds. You do have a solid feeling when you hold it, but the umbrella itself is actually quite lite. That is to say, holding a wooden stick umbrella is not really a problem. You don’t need to worry about the weight.


I thought the prices for wooden shaft umbrella would be much higher than other common umbrellas at the very beginning. But I was wrong once again.

Although there are authentically designed umbrellas with premium wood material, whose prices are over hundred even thousand bucks. But most of them are under $50. It’s something that everyone can afford. But a wooden handle umbrella is definitely more graceful and expensive-looking for sure.
