A thumbstick handle is one of the most classic British handles and features the naturally occurring V-shape. With the thumb resting in the middle and the fingers clasped around the stick, this handle provides additional support and balance.
Blackthorn is the traditional wood of Ireland and one of the most sought-after woods for making walking sticks. It is distinguished by its rich colour, which may be any shade of deep red through to black. Blackthorn usually forms a shrubby bush and lengths of raw materials long enough to make into thumbsticks are quite rare and highly esteemed.
This Hiking Stick features a combi ferrule, which means that there is a rubber ferrule fitted over a spiked one. This way, the staff can safely be used on both hard and soft surfaces, making it ideal for diverse hiking terrain.
