Hazel is one of the most popular woods used in stickmaking.

Many hikers, trekkers and hill-walkers prefer to use a longer stick -(usually called a staff) – rather than the traditional walking stick/cane.  Although I generally concentrate on making normal length sticks, I occasionally come across shanks which are long enough to be finished as staffs.

This is a substantial Hazel hiking staff.

The dimensions shown under the Additional Information tab are in inches and ounces. The width is the measurement at the tip (bottom) of the stick. Any stick can be shortened to a specified length at no extra cost.

All of my sticks are entirely handmade and have been sourced, seasoned and handcrafted by me.

My sticks are a bit different.  Why? 

  1. Firstly, like myself they may have little imperfections.
  2. Secondly, they may not be 100% straight or might even have the odd bump or lump.
  3. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, they do have character and charm!  And, in today’s robotic structured world, isn’t a little bit of individuality to be welcomed? 
  4. I source the material for my sticks locally in neglected thickets, along river banks and from hedges along little used ‘bóreens’. 
  5. I guarantee every stick as handmade, 100% Irish and totally traceable.


The enterprise is located in the beautiful and picturesque West of Ireland at Derryhick, County Mayo.

Handmade walking sticks from Ireland – made from native woods and finished with natural oils.  My slogan “Designed by nature; Finished by hand” accurately describes my stickmaking.
