Slick Stick
By Stan Virden
Dec 26, 2015

Strikes a nice balance between dignity and informality. Handle is smooth and quite comfortable. The hook is sufficient to hang on a bar. The wrist loop is useful, but tends to slide down the shaft--it's only a matter of time until it will be lost. Altogether a useful helpmate to climbing stairs and slopes, as well as descending into and rising from chairs.

A 5-star product. Looks great, feels great and provides the support I need.

Classy Cane

Even thicker and more substantial than the one it replaced that was gnawed on by our chocolate Lab. Beautiful cane and as strong as steel.

Beautiful Genuine Blackthorn wood cane with Derby Handle
rich & rustic 

Look good and feel better carrying this loyal friend.  Blackthorn is a hardwood long harvested by the Irish and British Islanders and has been used for walking canes and even the traditional shillelagh, or war club. You've probably heard about the "Irish Blackthorn", a very famous stick indeed. This is a substantial stick, that you will use and wear with pride. Comfortable-and substantial- derby handle provides a comfortable haven for your palm. The characteristic undulating shaft is detailed with a premium protective finish, not a cheap clearcoat. 

Very popular, Blackthorn wood has become a rare specimen in the British Isles with both a lack of harvest and laborers. Not to worry, we have discovered the same "shillelagh quality" wood in Europe. This Germany imported derby handle Blackthorn is of the finest stock and one that can be handed down through the ages.

We custom size your cane to your personal specifications, upon request. Please enter your desired cut size in the comments section at checkout (just after entering your payment information). 

You will not find a better quality blackthorn wood. You may find one that's less expensive, but of lesser quality.


We Guarantee You'll Love this Blackthorn!


  • Shaft: Blackthorn
  • Handle: Extra wide derby style
  • Brass accent ring; hand applied
  • 36 inch length-can be cut to size, <36"
  • Weight: 14.5 oz (approximately)
  • Complimentary wrist strap-can be removed
  • Rubber traction tip with steel insert for durability
  • Weight capacity: 250 lb
  • Note: Natural wood sticks are 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/natural state based sticks and canes have irregular cracks, dents, undulations.
    • Some larger cracks may be 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.
    • Modifications to or evidence of poor treatment, storage or upkeep will mitigate the 30 day warranty on these sticks.
