Hazel Coppice Knob Walking Stick
Product Code: 1201These traditional knob walking sticks are perhaps the most rustic in appearance of all walking sticks. They almost seem to have been freshly cut from the hedgerow. Read on to find out how they are cultivated in reality. This example is made from hazel.
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.
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. (See below for images of this process.)
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.

Your Shopping Bag
Dear Customers, If you are between sizes of Barbour jacket, just call us on 01494 775577 and we will measure up chest, sleeve and body length for you over the phone.
Customers SayHello Paul and Sara, What FANTASTIC service. I am often quoted that "Your goods have been shipped via Royal Mail 1st class delivery and should be delivered tomorrow". Because I live on the Isle of Man I have to add, sometimes, 1 week for actual delivery. But not this time! The clasp was delivered first thing this morning. And to top it all off, it was exactly as described and what I needed.
Thank you so much.
Raymond H., Isle of Man

Thank you very much for your prompt service and goods safely received. I was born and brought up in Chesham and bought things from Cox's when I was younger. I was pleased to see the name come up on the internet when I was looking for ferrules and that is why I picked you. I will keep you in mind for the future. Thanks again.

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
They have arrived and my briefcase is in full working order again.
Thank you so much.
