Perfect

Beautiful more natural finish than the usual black (which i do like). The big symmetrical knob is coloring as i use the stick. When new the knob was a little pale but now the color is deepening and more grain is showing. At 36" this is light enough to function perfectly as a walking stick but plenty stout as well.

         
 
Excellent Blackthorn

I have had my Blackthorn walking stick for three weeks now and enjoy it. The feel of the head in my hand is taking some getting use to as it is somewhat different in shape from my twenty-five year old stick, bought on Oxford Street when I lived in Hertsfordshire. This stick is thicker and has less "personality" (i.e., the natural burrs/thorns are smoothed down and the finish is rougher and more natural) but is quite strong and well made. I have used it on city streets and in my walks in the high desert of Central New Mexico. The yard-long length is perfect for my stature and also helps to enforce the current COVID19 "social distancing" when other folks try to get too close. I can only hope I last as long as I believe this Blackthorn stick shall. I recommend this without hesitation or equivocation.

Interested in the idea of Custom Sizing your Blackthorn knobstick?  ELDERLUXE provides complimentary sizing on most sticks like this one- however the traditional use is to keep them lean and tall.

Note: Fissures, cracks and imperfections are characteristic of natural wood canes such as these. Take care to store in a well-humidified area as well as drying the sticks carefully should they get wet. And like any cane, avoid dropping the stick and excess weight/leverage which may cause weakening or additional cracks.

  • Authentic blackthorn walking stick, imported from the UK - Classic Canes, Somerset.
  • Shafts are 5/8 in. diameter or better (premium grade) 36-37 inch length.
  • Weight: 12 oz (approximately)
  • Complimentary wrist strap: can be removed Rubber traction tip with steel insert for durability
  • Natural wood, not rated for weight capacity
    • NOTE: Not suitable for heavy or orthopaedic use, ALSO please read the following:
  • Note: Blackthorn sticks are natural and mostly un-modified specimens; as a result they are irregular, organic and less "finished" than other cut and stained type walking sticks. As a consequence:

    • Blackthorns and other root knob/based sticks and canes that are "unfinished" will have irregular cracks, dents, undulations.
    • Some larger cracks are filled with wood filler in some instances.
    • Natural Wood knobsticks are not meant for rigorous support of full weight individuals; rather, these are used for light support and balance while walking, hiking or trekking under average conditions.
    • Sticks should be kept dry, in a moderate environment.
    • Extreme heat or cold can and will cause some blackthorn sticks to "flake" off exterior bark, despite the light pitch finish used on them.
    • Avoid moisture, water submersion or other wet conditions, they too can distress the natural properties of your cane. Dry your walking stick once indoors if walking in inclement weather. Natural based oils may be use lightly and sparingly.
    • Do not lacquer the stick; you will not be pleased with the outcome.
    • Should you have specific requests please put them into the comments box at checkout or call ahead at 1.888.537.LUXE to discuss options that may be available. Note that specific requests can and may delay your shipment until we receive specimens we feel match your desire.
