Cherry Crook Handle Walking Stick
The shepherd's crook is a must-have accessory for countryside ramblers and hikers. A versatile tool, it is still used in traditional sheep farming today, but also makes for a great general walking aid for rural environments.
The Cherry Crook Handle Walking Stick is an authentic crook handle walking stick which is handmade using traditional coppicing techniques. Shorter in length, it is better suited for use as a walking aid rather than as a working item.

This traditional Cherry Crook Handle Walking Stick is not just made, it is grown! The ancient technique of coppicing involves cutting back the source trees about a metre back from the ground, stimulating the growth of new shoots which grow to an appropriate diameter for a walking stick.
This stick is made from luxury cherrywood which is finished by hand to attain a beautiful sheen. The signature curvature of its crook handle is both attractive and practical, allowing the stick to be hooked around the arm when not in use. Fantastic for country jaunts, the Cherry Crook Handle Walking Stick completes any outdoorsman's outfit.
This walking stick is supplied with a rubber ferrule as standard. Ideal for urban environments, this style of ferrule absorbs shock and helps to reduce fatigue in the hand.
