Ash, Walnut and Knob Thorn stick - "knob kerrie" style (longer)

  • Sale
  • Regular price £70.00


This is an ash, Walnut and Knob Thorn stick for walking or hiking, crafted in the style of a "knob kerrie". 
It is 42"/107cm long and weighs 310g. It is fitted with a rubber ferrule.

This particular stick has been made with another which is similar in design, they would make ideal "His and Hers" gifts. This is the longer of the two; you can view the shorter one here. I think it would be nice for them to stay together - but of course they can be bought separately! I have included photos of the two sticks together, for illustration only.

This is a lovely slim stick made from Ash and American Walnut with a Knob Thorn handle. Knob thorn is a tree that produces fruits eaten by giraffes; I am told only they can reach the fruit and deal with the thorns. 

The lighter and darker woods make a striking alternate coloured shaft.  

The price includes postage and packing to UK mainland addresses.

Unique hand-crafted sticks

Buying one of my hand-made walking sticks means owning a unique item. Each one is designed and made by me in my workshop in rural Bedfordshire and as far as I am aware no-one else on planet Earth makes sticks like mine.

Making the sticks

The process of making a stick takes up to three weeks and each stick is guaranteed to be one of a kind. I will make sticks that are similar, but each individual stick has a character all its own.

  • The shafts of the sticks are made from sustainably sourced hardwoods from around the world and are finished with either varnish or high quality wax polish.
  • The handles come in different shapes and styles and again are made from sustainably sourced hardwoods or rosewoods. Each handle is turned by me and finished to the same exacting standards I apply to the shafts.
  • The handles are secured to the shafts using a stainless steel rod.

I can make to order 

Sticks can usually be made to order if you would like a particular timber, subject to availability of the wood. I would need at least 4 weeks’ notice to make a bespoke stick as the materials have to be very carefully sourced and prepared before I can start making. Please contact me for details.

Unique and useful - for yourself or for a loved one

These unique walking sticks are both an aid to walking or hiking and a talking point with those you meet on the highways and byways. They are also an heirloom ready to be passed down to the next generation.

Each stick will be carefully packaged and delivered free of charge to any UK mainland address. Please contact me for delivery options elsewhere.
