RN21005: Rhododendron is not often used to make walking sticks largely because it can be difficult to find suitable shanks.
When suitable Rhododendron shanks are found they make very attractive sticks… tough, light, colourful, never straight… but full of character!
Though the cross section is often oval rather than round this in no way diminishes either the attractiveness or the usefulness of the sticks.
The dimensions shown 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.
