Buying walking sticks in Israel?

Is it easy to purchase a walking stick in Israel? Alternatively, how likely is it to find a nice stick along the trail that could be used as a walking stick?

In any gear and outdoor store you will find hiking poles.

Walking poles

If I could add to Yankale's information, I have done a fair bit of long distance hiking and consider hiking poles essential (two of them, not just one). They relieve stress on your knees both uphill and downhill, add additional power to your walk, and are occasionally important for balance in slippery situations. The hikers on the Appalachian Trail were divided into two groups: those who started the hike with hiking poles and those who soon acquired them.
