All of my sticks are entirely handmade and have been sourced, seasoned and handcrafted by me.
Though not related, Hawthorn shares many of the qualities that make Blackthorn such a favourite, e.g. tough and hard wearing with frequent distinctive knots. When the outer bark is removed, a warm reddish brown underbark is exposed.
Hawthorn makes good quality walking sticks which are attractive, strong and hard wearing. From my experience, I rate Hawthorn very highly as a wood that invariably makes first class walking sticks.
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.
Guidelines for arriving at the optimum length for you are shown on the Choosing a Stick page.
