The bark of Ivy is soft and fibrous and has to be completely removed when making a walking stick from the wood. Nonetheless, it is worth the trouble because, when the bark is stripped, a lovely speckled wood is revealed.
Ivy sticks are not very strong and might be unsuitable to use as support for a heavy owner. They are rather more for collecting than for frequent use but are really lovely and full of charm.
This another really lovely Ivy stick… BIG but light as a feather!
