I want a knob handled walking stick in Blackthorn . Can you say if you would be in a position to provide one in the not too distant future?

Hi Bill,

Thank you for your question.

Unfortunately, the industry is currently going through a shortage of blackthorn wood, and while we didn't think it would last this long, it's hard to say when we'll be able to provide a full range of blackthorn sticks again.

At the moment, the cane shown above is the only blackthorn walking stick of any sort that we have in stock.

In the meantime, you can browse our wooden sticks by clicking the "Wooden Sticks" link at the top of this page. We have plenty of knob handled sticks, and hopefully one of those will do the trick.

Let us know if there's anything else we can help you with!

Kind regards,

Eugene at
