For those looking to explore the countryside with a classic hiking staff, the Traditional Blackthorn Country and Hiking Staff with Wrist Strap is as traditional as they come.

Attractive Classic Staff

The staff is a simple, upright handle on a long stick that the user grasps with their palm and fingers wrapped firmly around. When it comes to its functionality, design and overall appearance, this Blackthorn Hiking Staff, made from distinctive blackthorn wood and fitted with a leather wrist strap, could not be any more traditional.

Characterful Blackthorn Wood

Blackthorn is the traditional wood of Ireland and one of the most sought-after woods for making walking sticks, esteemed for its rich colour and the characterful appearance, caused by its spiny thorns. This rustic staff is made entirely from blackthorn wood, which gives it its unique appearance and high degree of reliability.

Please note that due to the natural sourcing and manufacturing process the length of the staff 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.

Blackthorn Staff
19 April 2022  |  Tim

I am so pleased with my stick, it is everything I was hoping for the height, weight and colour was exactly what was advertised and I will be recommending ''walking sticks'' to friends and family and will definitely use them for my next stick.

Beautiful staff

Lovely to find an actual blackthorn staff. Superbly finished, not over-varnished. Weight just right. Delighted with the stick. Note it has a plain metal fertile not a combi, no problem for me.
