Stylish Country Stick
The Blackthorn Derby Stick brings together the rustic and the shiny, the smooth and the rugged, the fashionable and the practical. Its wooden handle is polished to perfection and wonderfully comfortable to grip, while the shaft is left practically untouched, showcasing the natural beauty of blackthorn.
To complete the unique appearance, the cane is fitted with a smart brass collar, which goes great with both the handle and the shaft, and an unobtrusive metal ferrule. The metal ferrule provides a safe grip on all soft surfaces, making it great for walking in the countryside and over fields.
Characterful Blackthorn Shaft
Blackthorn, the traditional wood of Ireland, is esteemed for its rich colour and the characterful appearance caused by its spiny thorns. This Derby Walking Stick features a natural-looking shaft that is bound to turn some heads, especially when contrasted with the shiny, perfectly polished sandalwood handle.
Wide Sandalwood Derby Handle
Unlike the rustic shaft, the sandalwood handle has been polished to perfection for a soft and comfortable grip. Its extra-wide design makes sure even people with larger hands find it easy to grip.
Sizing of the Blackthorn Country Stick
The overall height of the stick is 36" (92cm). Due to the natural sourcing and manufacturing process, however, the length may vary slightly from product to product.
Can I Replace the Ferrule?
Yes, if your ferrule becomes worn, you can remove the fitted ferrule and replace it with a new one. As this is a natural product, we recommend measuring the end of your stick to determine which size is right for your stick. For information on how to measure your stick, we recommend reading our article on How to Measure Your Walking Stick for a Ferrule.
