Blackthorn Crosshead Stick



data-pin-do="buttonPin" data-pin-config="none">Blackthorn Crosshead Stick

Product Code: 1419

A very traditional and interesting walking stick that is also a great talking point. The method of growing them is unusual: the tiny blackthorn sucker is uprooted when only a few inches high and replanted on its side, with soil ridged over it. To survive, the sapling sends up a shoot, which gradually grows in diameter until it is big enough to form the shaft of the walking stick. The plant is then uprooted again, and the root system is fashioned into the handle. The right angle that has been produced makes a very strong blackthorn walking stick, because it has grown in that shape rather than being steamed and bent into position. As each root system is different, each of these sticks is unique. Sometimes the root system produces lots of 'toes' in the handle, sometimes a smoother handle results. Blackthorn wood is highly prized for the rich reddish-black colour of its bark. The shaft is fitted with a metal ferrule and has an approximate overall height of 92cm.

CUSTOMERS SAY

Just to let you know, the jacket has arrived and hasn't been off my Husband's back since Christmas day, so I think we can safely say it was a success.

Many thanks again.

Clare G., Kent
I received the brolly Saturday, exactly what I was expecting. Thanks for your good and quick service. I also appreciate family business. This not so easy to purchase a whangee handle umbrella in France. With Best Regards.

Antoine T., Bachy, France
This is just a short message to say thank you for your help and courtesy on the phone regarding a ferrule for my walking stick. It fits perfectly, although I had to get a good strong man to fit it on for me!

Pat H., Brighton

Emma D., Southampton

Good morning - the boot bag has just been delivered to my desk - which is truly excellent service. I had been hoping that it would arrive in time for a trip on Saturday. The bag is just what I was looking for.
David H., Fife
Thank you for your messages, and also for the amazingly swift processing of my order. That is fantastic service! I have a confession to make, in that my purchase has nothing to do with hunting, fishing, or even horses.... I will be using the Brady bag for photography.Tom Abrahamsson of British Columbria recommended your company at the Rangefinder Forum (apparently Tom has used Brady bags for many years, preferring the slightly smaller Ariel model to the one I chose). It is such a pleasure to receive a personalised service from a family business these days. The internet makes shopping much easier but rarely does that convenience come with care and attention to detail. Thank you once again for making my purchase so painless :-)
Best Regards.

Ross M., New South Wales
Dear Paul,

Thank you very much for my recent order - a Barbour bag. It was despatched very quickly, a lovely bag at a great price that I've found hard to be beaten anywhere else after much research. You're doing a great job for a small family business and if there's a way I can leave you some good feedback somewhere I would be more than happy to do so.

Many thanks again.

G.G., Essex
Thanks for the jacket, well pleased, have passed on your details to family and friends Regards Lesley
