Details

The original tree is cut back, and the resultant shoots form the raw material for walking sticks. The ‘knob’ handle is formed from the parent tree, so that the walking stick is in effect grown upside down. A good knobstick fits comfortably into the palm of the hand.

The rich reddish-brown colour of the blackthorn bark is as distinctive as it is appealing. Grown from coppiced wood, blackthorn is an extremely thorny plant capable of inflicting poisoning on the forester if not correctly handled when cutting the sticks. However, the finished product is much admired for its knobbly, rustic appearance.

  • Finished with a metal ferrule, the approximate height of these unique walking sticks is 97cm (38").
