Gents' Plain Chesnut Crook Walking Stick
Product Code: 3121This chestnut chestnut crook is perhaps the most popular of all walking sticks. This gents' version is 92 cm (36 inches) in length. These walking sticks are great value for money.
Our chestnut sticks are obtained from coppiced woods. The raw material is peeled and steamed into the crook shape, forming the most traditional of sticks.
Coppicing is a traditional forestry technique and the method used to produce rustic walking sticks. A deciduous tree such as ash or chestnut is sawn in two, whereupon the part remaining rooted in the ground produces a number of new shoots. Within a few years, these grow large enough to form walking sticks. They are then cut from the tree and the process begins again.
The rounded handle of a knob stick is fashioned from part of the original tree's trunk; they do in fact grow upside down.
Thumbsticks are grown in the same way except that the V-shaped handle is formed by a naturally occurring fork in the new shoot.
Coppicing is the ultimate technique for sustainable woodland!
This walking stick can be cut down in size as required. Please select the required walking stick length from the pull down menu below. Please note that we will come as close as we can to the measurement you select but as this height includes the ferrule and thicknesses of ferrule vary, your walking stick my vary by up to 1/2 inch from the height selected. Please note once a stick has been cut to size we are unable to accept it back, so please be sure you are choosing the correct length.
To measure someone for a walking stick, ask them to stand with their weight evenly on both feet, looking straight ahead and with their arms relaxed by their sides. You then need to measure from the floor to the prominent bone of the wrist. This is the length of walking stick required. Please note this is just a rule of thumb. If the person has special needs, they may need to be measured by a medical professional. Alternatively they may have personal preferences for a longer or shorter walking stick.

|Bell shaped rubber walking stick ferrule type C|
There are several different types of walking stick ferrule, most of which are listed here. Each ferrule is available in a number of different diameters, simply choose your preferred width from the pull down menu below. This bell shaped ferrule is our most popular shape. It is made of black rubber and has a steel washer insert. For people who use their walking stick in ernest, rather than just as a fashion accessory, good tread is vital. To ensure that your walking stick does not slip on wet or smooth surfaces, it is important to replace the rubber ferrule frequently. For those who have a decorative cane with a horn or metal ferrule, serious consideration should be given to covering this with a rubber ferrule, if the cane is to be used for support.

Just a quick note to let you know that I received the jacket today, and it's as nice as I had hoped. It will be perfect for walking (or shovelling snow) in cold and damp weather. Thanks again for all your attention and efforts.

Dear Sara and Paul, The items, ref. 14846624, reached me safely on 21st, Aug. Thank you very much.
The lock and hasp are for my "i santi" briefcase purchased in Manila, Philippines, in 1994. Long time I was looking for same lock and hasp, but I could not find. Happily, thanks to the internet, I finally found them on your website. The Italian lock for the briefcase bought in Philippines, travels from The United Kingdom to Japan. Nice story!
I registered on your website. I am looking forward to see you on your web store. Thank you for your co-operation.
Dear Sara and Paul, just a quick note to say thank you so much for the fast despatch of my order. The walking stick is very pretty (much nicer than the photo). The handle is so different from the usual Ergonomic ones, but is actually very comfortable. Thanks again and when I need anything else I'll be back to you. Have a lovely weekend.
With very best wishes.

Order received this morning - fantastic prompt service! Just wanted to say many thanks and will certainly be ordering from you again - having been let down by one of your competitors! Hope your business has a good Christmas.

Paul and Sara, What a brilliant service! My order was here at 9.25am today and now less than 24 hours since I ordered the new martingales are up on the wall in place of the two that broke. I'm so glad I found you on the internet earlier in the year. Many thanks, Anne.
