I like making Holly sticks. Even though it presents many challenges including difficulty in retaining the bark, it is well worthwhile persevering with the species as the end result is invariably a stick with charm and character.
This is a nice little Holly walking stick. It is 37.5 inches long and weighs just 10.5 ounces. The handle is comfortable and the shank is a nice blend between partially shaven portions and natural bark on the remainder.
Guidelines on finding the correct length are shown on Choosing a Stick.
