Blackthorn is the traditional country walking stick and is highly sought after around the world.

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. 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.
