Blackthorn Crosshead Stick
Product Code: 1419A 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 SayHi Sara and Paul, Thanks for keeping me up to date in respect of my order. I was very impressed with your friendly and prompt service. I have every intention to use you in the future, only sad I did not now about your company sooner but will certainly recommend you to friends.
Myriam W., Kent

Gabriele V., Germany
Thanks so much for the speedy dispatch of my order, which I received today. Thanks also for the jam. What a lovely touch. I bought a designer handbag on eBay while visiting the US this summer, but I knew that I'd have to fix some of the hardware. I found your website while I was in the US and decided to take the chance. I'm so glad I did. Thanks very much.
Joanne G., Stamford, Lincs.

We are delighted to report our Barbour Gaiters arrived safely this morning. Many thanks for the extremely impressive service, as a bonus we can now look forward to using them on our traditional Christmas walks!!
Compliments of the season, and thank you both again. This is very impressive service! We will certainly remember this for the future.
Mike B., Chester
Paul and Sara, Thank you very much for the prompt delivery of the item. I didn't expect it to turn up this morning. Great service. Kind regards,
Simon T., Herefordshire
Just a line to say the martingales arrived safely. I was very pleased that the quality is a lot better than the photos would have me believe. Not only is the leather very stout, the buckle and dee are solid brass throughout. It is unlikely I will ever need such an item again, as they are to stay indoors, replacing some disintegrated leather parts from my dad's workhorse tackle.
Nevertheless, I wish you all the best in your business.
B. Willett, Germany
Many thanks for the quick turn around, I will keep you in my favourites for similar purchases in the future :)
