Best Blackthorn Walking Sticks

Wednesday, 15 November 2017

Blackthorn is a highly sought-after wood. It takes time, dedication and a little bit of luck to grow a perfectly natural blackthorn walking stick, which is why blackthorn walking sticks are rather rare and a bit harder to come by. While here at WalkingSticks.co.uk we do offer a broad range of blackthorn sticks, they are only available in limited supply, and usually require you to order them quite some time in advance.

But good things in life are usually not the easiest to obtain, and a genuine blackthorn walking stick is definitely worth the wait. We've put together this list of some of the best blackthorn walking sticks we have to offer to help you find the right one for you. Please note that most of these suggested walking sticks are pre-order items.
