Walking Sticks Make Great Christmas Presents

If you are stuck for ideas for presents this Christmas, how about a walking stick? We now have more choice than ever and something to suit all budgets and tastes. We have an excellent selection for men and women, young and old.

We are now using Yodel to deliver all wooden walking sticks to UK addresses, Royal Mail for all folding and height adjustable sticks and UPS for urgent next day deliveries and for worldwide deliveries. The latest dates for Christmas deliveries are now shown on the website.

If you wanted to personalize your gift with an engraved collar or plaque, please allow an extra 5 days for delivery as we do not do the engraving in-house. For hand-carved  sticks, the cut off date for orders for Christmas is the end of November. Please call or email us first to inquire before paying so that we can check with the stick maker first.

Come and see our great selection today!

Order a Hand Carved Walking Stick for Christmas

Our very talented stick maker (Peter) is now taking commissions for his hand carved sticks in time for Christmas. You can choose from the selection on the website or you can send in some photos of your pet for him to copy.

Take a look at the range here: Hand Carved Examples

Hand Carved Mute Swan Stick Topper

Work typically takes 4 to 6 weeks during the year, but as the orders multiply for Christmas, it’s best to get your order in early. Each stick topper is hand carved from a block of wood and then painted by hand to a beautiful finish.

In fact, the whole stick is handmade from start to finish. The wood for the shank is selected and cut locally and then it is dried (seasoned) for two to three years and then steam straightened.

The shank is finished with oil, cut to the desired height and finished with a brass ferrule. The handle is attached to the pole with a steel insert making it very strong and robust.

A  hand carved walking stick is not only beautiful but it is made to be used as well. You will get years and years of use out of one of these sticks. They make excellent gifts.

For bespoke requests, the stick maker asks that you send in 4 photographs of your pet (1 from the front, 2 profile pictures and 1 from the back) to get a perfect likeness. We can also add an engraved collar to make the gift even more personalized.

Get in touch today and see what we can do for you!

Available in five different designs, these Derby handled canes are very well made and look great. The shell is set into the handles with resin so there is no danger of them being chipped off. The shell pieces are from abalone and mother of pearl, also known as nacre. Nacre is strong, resilient and iridescent – perfect stick making qualities!

The shell handled canes are five of over one hundred new items we added to the website last month. Please come and see our new sticks today!

Just like all of our other wooden canes, these shell handled ones can be shortened to any height required, have an engraved plaque added and can be delivered to any UK address in just one day. We also ship overseas.

New Varnished and Shaped Cross Head Walking Stick

Due to the popularity of the one-piece cross head walking sticks that we sell, we have added another one to the range. This one is British coppiced Ash with the characteristic green/grey bark preserved. The handle is shaped and varnished, with the beautiful wood exposed.

Cross head sticks are popular because they are so strong, fashioned from just one piece of wood. The handle is the root and the shank is the shoot that grew up from the root.

For ladies we have two black; one with a black velvet covered handle and one with Burgandy velvet, and one brown with a chocolate brown velvet handle. The ladies sticks are lightweight (just 280 grams) and have small handles.

Owl in Stag Antler Carved Walking Sticks

Handmade Owl Stick

Have you ever seen anything so beautiful? These walking sticks have red stag antler handles that have hand carved barn owl faces in the crowns. These first two commissioned by us actually have personality and character, they are truly amazing.

Trudy says, “How do I make them?
It’s a case of simply going with the natural grain of the antler crown. Sometimes, I can ‘see’ the animal or bird in there already. I have no advance plan as every antler carves very differently.
Everything is hand carved and hand filed to get the overall shape, I then burn in the small details to accentuate them. Once that’s done, I drill and insert carefully chosen handmade glass eyes.
When I’m happy with the carving and detail, I clean the antler crown, then polish with 3 different grades of polish to seal and protect the carved antler.”
When these two are sold, we will be buying them to order, so allow 4 weeks for delivery. Please also request the ideal height you would like your walking stick to be.
Most sticks we sell are about 91cm or 36 inches in height. To determine the correct height, stand up straight with your arms flat to your sides and measure the distance from the ground to your wrist. This is the height you need. It may be easier to have someone help you to do this or make a mark on a wall to measure if you are on your own.

Stickmakers listen up! The new quicktorn shanks are 150cm in length, perfect for tall stick projects. Now in stock and available to purchase on the website, these shanks are supplied with a metal ferrule tip already fitted.
Quickthorn is another name for Hawthorn and like all thorn trees the branches are oval in cross section and are covered in thorns in the wild. For these shanks the branches have their thorns removed and the wood is dried for at least two years and then steam straightened.
