Natural Blackthorn Crosshead Country Walking Stick

If you're looking for a walking stick that would serve as a unique accessory and a great conversation starter, the Natural Ash Crosshead Country Walking Stick is probably one of the most interesting country canes you'll ever come across. Being grown rather than steamed and bent into its shape gives the stick its unique and natural appearance, and also makes it incredibly strong and reliable as well.

The Unusual Growing Method

The method of growing Blackthorn Crosshead canes is unusual: the tiny blackthorn sucker is uprooted when only a few inches high and replanted on its side, with soil ridged over it. To survive, the sapling sends up a shoot, which gradually grows in diameter until it is big enough to form the shaft of the walking stick. The plant is then uprooted again, and the root system is fashioned into the handle. 

The right angle that has been produced makes a very strong stick, because it has grown in that shape rather than being steamed and bent into position. As each root system is different, each of these sticks is unique. Sometimes the root system produces lots of 'toes' in the handle, sometimes a smoother handle results. Blackthorn wood is highly prized for the rich reddish-black colour of its bark.

Blackthorn Wood

Blackthorn is the traditional wood of Ireland and one of the most sought-after woods for making walking sticks. It is esteemed for its rich colour and the characterful appearance, created by its spiny thorns.
