SKU: Handmade Blackthorn Walking Stick Wood Shillelagh (Handmade in Ireland) Category: Tags: , , ,

      Solid Blackthorn wood walking stick- Shillelagh (shill-lay-lee) or thronged willow

Handmade in Ireland from locally harvested Irish Blackthorn, each walking stick is handcrafted individually and has a unique character all its own- No two are alike

Solid Blackthorn with a copper colored metal bottom ferrule that wraps around the bottom circumference of the stick- Most have a prominent knob-style top

Length, circumference, and grain vary per piece- Each is left natural with no stain and the thorn nubs are not removed- After being dipped in black paint, a shiny lacquer finish for protection and beauty is applied

Length varies per piece from 36 to 38 inches

(Traditional Blackthorn walking sticks were hung over a fire for months to cure and harden, the ash giving them a black color. They were then oiled. Shillelaghs were also used as a weapon to settle disputes in a gentlemanly manner.)
