the Hen Crook, of genuine Chestnut

A delightful stick, traditionally used by farmers' wives to catch hens by the neck. Nowadays, hen crooks are often used as everyday walking sticks, as country sticks for children, and as crooks for the shepherds in nativity plays.

Made from peeled chestnut wood, the stick has been steamed and bent into the attractive crook shape. Overall height approximately 92cm (36") (heights vary). Fitted with a metal ferrule and rubber tip provided as well as wrist strap- FREE. Item weight is a tad over 5 ounces (150g).

This is an extremely lightweight and slim stick; best not used for orthopedic purposes. Better as an accessory or for lighter "balance" issues while walking. 

A very dapper cane with a fine carved detail at the crook.

 

CAUTION: hen crooks must not be left or stored in damp conditions because the damp will make the steamed crook spring open.
