This Rugged Blakthorn Performs
By Rick in New Mexico
May 19, 2021

This is a robust, rugged walking stick that serves my needs very well. It is the second purchased from Elderluxe. My previous stick was stolen while I was briefly inattentive. I had grown so pleased with it, I hastened to replace it. This stick, if anything, is even better than the last. Both complement a beloved original purchased over a quarter-century ago when I lived in Hertsfordshire, UK and frequently roamed the footpaths of that lovely land. I took it to Ireland, and back to the USA when my assignments concluded. I feared I would loose it, so I bought the first from Elderluxe, then lost that one. Compared side by side, I have come to prefer the Elderluxe sticks for stability and heft. I happily recommend these without reservation for a fine, comfortable, and sturdy walking stick. In my eighth decade now, I have come to depend upon this Blackthorn on all my walks, albeit through the Rio Grande Bosque rather than along the Grand Canal, the Epping Forest, or Muir Woods.

Very Nice

Authentic as you can get. Very nice cane but wish the hole for strap was smaller diameter. Still, Blackthorn is really stout and excellent for self defense. Perfect knob and extremely well balanced. I wonder how it was aged?

Simply the best

We Ol Scots can't be fooled after all we've been easing our selves into old age for thousands of years with the help of a blackthorn branch. This one sports all the good looks with a utilitarian heritage

Extremely functional and beautiful. I get a lot of positive comments and awe when seen in public with this cane. As a member of Clan Campbell it is an irreplaceable classic asset to my wardrobe and repertoire! THE AUTHENTICITY CAN NOT BE BEATEN AT ANY PRICE!

Received my Blackthorn yesterday--beautiful, stout, well-balanced. It will help my aging football knee a lot. Outstanding service to find me the right stick. I've got my eye on the ash wood cane next.

A beautiful and sturdy Genuine Blackthorn Knobstick. I am glad I found this site. I looked at many so-called Blackthiorns and this one looked the best. The Shipping was prompt and it came with an extra wrist strap. If you are looking for a unique Knobstick that is as functional as it is beatiful this is the one to get.

awesome quality

I ordered this cane to replace the one the military gave me. I was searching the Internet for one that would catch my eye and this did just that. The quality is perfect. I didn't want a cheap imitation Blackthorn cane. I very happy with this.i would highly recommend this site to anyone.

I just had back surgery and will need a walking stick/cane to graduate to from my walker. I was nervous to buy from a company I know nothing about. My walking stick arrived today and I couldn't be happier! From look to feel to weight/height to usability.. I honestly can't envision a better product than what showed up. I'm only 40 and hope to abuse it for many years. If not I know where to get my next one.

Irish and European history of the blactkthorn.

Blackthorn can be found growing along the lanes and byways of Europe, especially Ireland and Britain and has long been used for walking canes and even the traditional shillelagh, or war club. Many will recall this form of the Irish Blackthorn. The plants are slow-growing and therefore produce a very hard wood, but great skill and experience are required to identify the branches suitable for the production of walking sticks. These can only be cut during a few weeks in mid-winter and have to be seasoned for at least two years before they are straightened, sanded and polished. No two blackthorn are alike. Of late there has been notable shortages of material, due to over-harvesting, diminished supply and a declining workforce willing to work around the prickly thorns of this native wood.

This genuine stout blackthorn walking stick has panache that you will appreciate and others around you will notice. Feel the wonderful round knob on your palm and experience the sturdy confidence this stick provides.  See our customer reviews to find out how satisfied they are with their blacthorn walking stick from ELDERLUXE.
