We are walking stick specialists. If there is anything you need to know or a stick that you want to have made for you then contact us, we have the answers.
We are celebrating our tenth year of selling walking sticks online and we have accrued a wealth of knowledge and some great contacts in the stick making world. We know more than we thought even possible about everything to do with sticks; from the humble rubber ferrule to how to make a ram’s horn handled shepherd’s crook.
We work with an ever increasing number of suppliers and stick makers and we always enjoy hearing about new products, particularly the handmade sector. We find stick makers to be a very clever, engineering minded and creative bunch and its wonderful to see their latest ideas come to fruition.
We have recently started working with a local stick maker who offers hand carved sticks with the owner’s pet as the handle. He does an amazing job of carving a true likeness to your dog just from the photos sent to him. The stick shanks are selected, cut, dried and steam straightened by the same stick maker and the handle often takes 9 hours or more to carve. These sticks obviously don’t come cheap but they are beautiful present to give or a wonderful thing to own yourself.
This year we are concentrating on getting our website and services better known to more people. As I said at the beginning of this blog post, we are walking stick specialists, we sell hundreds of different sticks and stick making parts and the website is called walkingsticksonline.co.uk!
Google has not been kind to us these last couple of years and we are trying to get back onto page 1 where we should be. If you would like to help us in this matter, please do link to the website if you like it or find it useful.
