Ash Crook Walking Stick with Polished Handle
Product Code: 1101The traditional crook walking stick, not in chestnut this time but made from ash. If grown on chalk, as it is by Classic Canes in Somerset, ash bark develops a beautiful silvery-grey hue not seen on any other type of wood. For this walking stick, the bark has mostly been left on, to create a stick that is truly rustic in appearance. Here the handle has been shaved and polished smooth.
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.
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.
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!

|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.

Dear Sara, The cane arrived safely and I am thrilled to bits with it. My friends got me all dressed up this afternoon and everything matches and looks very stylish. Many thanks once again for your personal attention.
Hi Paul, and thanks for getting my order shipped so quickly. I look forward to repairing my suitcase!....The replacement wheel units are now fitted - they weren't a perfect match to the Samsonite originals but I got them to fit with a bit of huffing and puffing.

Thank you for the quick delivery of the folding walking stick. The stick is light and easy to fold, which will be of great benefit to my 93 year old Aunt. Thank you once more for your excellent service.

Thank you Paul for excellent customer service. Hat arrived safely on Saturday. It was great to order late Friday lunchtime and receive on Saturday, especially as we are in a fairly remote part of West Cumbria.
