     Handmade Walking Stick Blackthorn Wood Shillelagh (Made in Ireland)

 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.)
