Attractive Ash Wood Pattern
The heartwood of the White Ash has a light to medium brown colour and a medium to coarse texture, similar to oak, while the grain is almost always straight and regular. This Ash Knobstick features a perfectly natural shaft, where the bark has been left in place to give the stick an attractive, textured appearance.
The only part of the cane that has been changed is the polished handle that displays the beautiful grain of ash wood. Perfectly smooth and carefully shaped, the knob handle is extremely comfortable and pleasant to touch.
Ideal for the Countryside
In the British countryside, a rustic walking stick is an indispensable accessory, carried by people of all ages. With its modest design, comfortable handle and metal ferrule that provides a safe grip when you are making your way through mud, stinging nettles and brambles, the Ash Coppice Knobstick is the perfect country cane.
A traditional British walking stick, the knobstick is made from coppiced wood, usually ash, hazel or blackthorn. The original tree is cutback, and the resultant shoots form the raw material for walking sticks.
The ‘knob’ handle is formed from the parent tree, so that the walking stick is in effect grown upside down. A good knobstick fits comfortably into the palm of the hand.
Please note that due to the natural sourcing and manufacturing process the length of this walking stick may vary slightly from product to product.
