Chestnut Long Shepherd's Crook

While all hiking sticks need to be slightly taller than ordinary canes, the Chestnut Long Shepherd's Crook is 137cm long, which means that it will meet the needs of even the tallest users. The wooden shaft can also easily be cut to fit your height even better. It is made entirely from chestnut wood and features a highly practical crooked handle that makes this stick particularly popular among bramble pickers.

Shepherd's Crook

While many walking sticks can have a crook handle, not all of them are described as shepherd's crooks. A proper wooden shepherd's crook is much taller than an ordinary country walking stick and very closely resembles the simple, naturally made sticks shepherds have traditionally used to herd sheep.

Shepherd's Crook

The crook handle has traditionally used by shepherds when herding their flock, as the crook handle makes the stick easy for the shepherd to wield and can also be used for catching sheep around the neck. Today, crook-handled walking sticks are still highly popular for hiking and particularly loved by bramble pickers.

The smooth chestnut handle is comfortable to hold and practical to hook over your arm when not in use. As the whole country walking stick is made from one long piece of wood, the colour of the handle perfectly matches that of the shaft, giving the stick a perfectly natural look, with no added embellishments or collars.

Coppiced Chestnut Wood

This Chestnut Shepherd's Crook is grown from coppiced wood, which means that each stick has a unique and natural charm. Coppiced wood is known for its strength and durability, but chestnut in particular is renowned for its rich brown colour and attractive texture.

Chestnut shepherd's crook
Friday, 8 June 2018  | 

The buying process was quick and simple and it arrived at my door much sooner than I expected. It's very well made, and I'm extremely pleased with it, except for one thing (hence 4 stars instead of 5). The mouth of the crook is too narrow. The neck of our small Jack Russell won't fit in, let alone a sheep's. Even though I know you hook a sheep by it's back leg...not it's neck, I still think the mouth of the crook should be wider, but would still highly recommend it for hiking.

Russell Blagg.
