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.

Thank you very much for the belt I ordered from you. I would like to say that my husband was very pleased with it. So once again thank you. I WISH YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR.
Gill D., Lincolnshire
I just wanted to say that I have received my order. Thank you to you and your colleagues for such prompt delivery and I am extremely pleased with the replacement strap. It's for my briefcase that has sentimental value as my Dad bought it for my mum many years ago when she started her own business but lost the strap at some point.
All the very best. Many thanks.
Sue C., London
Good Morning Sara & Paul,I received the lock this morning and it is perfect. Ordered Monday, installed before 10.00 am Wednesday. Delighted to have done business with you.
I believe that the email which you sent was an excellent gesture of looking after your clients and in directing them back to you in the future. I definitly will register with you. Congratulations.
Liam L., Ireland
Paul, we have received the Union Jack walking stick, thanks for the very speedy service. It is a gift for an elderly friend who has been chosen to be one of the Olympic torch bearers when it is going around the UK. He has had a walking disability all his life and he is now 76 so he says his 'lap' will be a very slow one! He knows nothing about the stick yet but I am sure he will be thrilled to use it when he carries the torch somewhere in County Durham in June.
Amanda F., Bishop Auckland
Just wanted to let you know that my cheque book holder arrived & it is beautiful - thank you.
Susan D., New South Wales
I have just arrived at my office desk and there waiting for me was the parcel from you containing items I only ordered mid way through yesterday afternoon. That is an astonishing level of service and, as a business owner myself, I wanted to congratulate you.
Wendy A., Northampton
Thank you for your prompt and helpful service.
I'm a big fan of Barbour (this will be my third), so I'm looking forward to receiving the slightly longer version.
As suggested, I have now registered with your website; and will definitely consider you for future purchases.
Certainly your prices are very competitive. £179 is an excellent price for a Barbour. My Beaufort cost me £205 about 4/5 years ago, from a major department store. Very best regards.
John M., Liverpool
The order arrived safely a few days ago, EXACTLY what we needed! You may be interested to know that we receive items from UK as quickly as we do from Hong Kong. They are as quick to post them as you did, but the mail system is slower (or possibly held up in customs).
Many of the luggage spares you are offering are almost unobtainable on this side of the planet!
