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.

|YOUR SHOPPING BAG|
Thanks for you excellent service, the replacement leather seat arrived today, and I had it fitted within minutes perfectly.
Thank you again so much, it is nice to know that there are companies out there in the UK that still care about service.
I am off to France next week for the first shoot of the season, an need my shooting stick, as I am just 80.
David G., Hampshire
Hi Paul & Sara,
Just a quick note to say thanks very much for your help with my order and also for the prompt delivery. Everything is suitable and I look forward to ordering again sometime in the near future.
S. Hopkins, Surrey
Dear Paul & Sara, Just to let you know that the liner I ordered arrived today - we're currently based in Oslo. Very many thanks for such a speedy service.
The liner is super snuggly but, even so, I think the temperatures here, heavy snow and minus 19 forecast for the weekend, have finally outmatched my trusty Barbour and I'll now have to embrace the michelin-man padded down look, at least until the Spring!
Jackie B., Oslo
Dear Sara and Paul, Just to let you know that my Barbour jacket arrived this morning and I am absolutely delighted with it!
Thank you so much for your prompt, efficient and superb customer service. I very much appreciate it. I am also very grateful for my discount.
Very many thanks again.
Caroline R., Merseyside
The boots arrived today thanks, really pleased with them.
Thanks for the great service.

Sara & Paul,
This is just to confirm safe delivery of the handbag strap which will enable me to use a nice bag which I've neglected for ages as its own strap is far too long, not ajustable, too narrow and therefore uncomfortable. I Googled 'brown leather handbag strap' and was delighted to find I could buy exactly what I wanted - colour, width, length, adjustable, clip-on - from yourselves. Many thanks for the very prompt and efficient service too.
Marion H., Edinburgh
Hi Paul & Sara, Thank you for my order which I received earlier this afternoon - great service [as usual!]
Kind regards & thanks again,
Teresa R., Kent
I received the Foldaway Supaseat today and although I have not had the opportunity to test it thoroughly, I think it will serve the purpose for which it was envisaged perfectly: I am an amateur (very) birdwatcher and can only walk very short distances with a stick. The Supaseat can double for me as stick and seat while trying to get the best out of nature!
As an aside, I've noted that Saddler.co.uk also purvey some quite attractive walking sticks, so I could well be coming back to you in the not too distant future. Until then, my thanks
Steven R., Denmark
Thank you for your help and for providing such a brilliant service! All the best, Malcolm

Hello Sara, Just to say many thanks for the Tumble & Hide Gents Long Leather Wallet. Received a within two days, which is amazing, it was really appreciated as it was for my husband's birthday and needless to say he is so pleased.
Your service is second to none I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to my friends.
Barbara H., Devon
