Fashionable Country Accessory
An elegant country walking stick can be the perfect fashion item to accessorise your hiking outfit. You'll love this Shepherd's Crook not only because of its reliability, but because of its appealing design and eye-catching decoration as well.
The wood has been scorched to produce the deep brown colour. The rich colour beautifully contrasts with the two parallel carved spirals: one narrow and unscorched, the other wider and lightly scorched.
The crook stick was 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.
This long country stick is grown from coppiced chestnut wood, as chestnut is one of the trees that responds very well to this method, which is still commonly practised in Great Britain. This type of wood is known for its strength and durability, making it the ideal material for walking sticks.
Please note that due to the natural sourcing and manufacturing process the length of this walking stick may vary slightly from product to product.
