New Handmade Twisty Sticks with Pewter Shamrock Detail

We have added three new handmade sticks to the handmade walking sticks section.

All three are made from twisty wood, or a tree branch that has grown entwined with Honeysuckle creating this lovely twisty finish.
One of the hiking sticks looks exactly like the Stick Man from the Julia Donaldson rhyming verse story entitled “The Stick Man”, with eyes, a nose and mouth. I am tempted to keep this one for the boys bedroom!
The other sticks have a Shamrock badge made from pewter on the handle tops.
Sticks are made with all sorts of handle toppers, pins and badges to make a stick a little bit special, personalised or just interesting.
You can buy English county badges, National Service badges, old English Pennies that have been bent around to fit the shaft of your stick and collectible European badges.
Toppers can be made from Silver, Pewter, Copper or resin. Some people like to have their favorite fly fishing flies set in resin and glued on to the handle of their wading stick or hiking stick.

New! Special Rubber Ferrule for All Shooting Sticks

We now stock a really strong rubber ferrule to fit any shooting stick.

Our shooting sticks all have a metal spike at the tip for pushing into soft ground (such as in a field) but if you require the stick to be used on a hard surface such as a pavement, then one of these ferrules is what you need.

They are reinforced with steel washers and are designed to withstand the weight of the shooting stick (about 1.5 kg) and the weight of the person using it.
You can buy one on our website by clicking the following link walking stick ferrules

New Walking Cane Holders

We have two new cane holders to buy on the website. The last cane holder was difficult to use so we have replaced them with these!

Cane holder

These cane holders can be used for all sticks with a shaft diameter of up to 3/4 inch. These gadgets are really useful as they enable the cane user to lean their stick against a table (even a round table!) without the stick sliding on to the floor. This stops the stick getting damaged and avoids a bit of hassle!

Walking Stick Lengths and Royal Mail

We use Royal Mail to send the majority of our orders and we think they are excellent! Deliveries reach their destinations the next day in over 90% of cases on a first class delivery service. The Special Delivery next day and Saturday delivery service is guaranteed and the only time in our experience that this didn’t happen was during the snow in January 2010 (a national disaster!)

Unfortunately, our standard length walking sticks are too long to send by Royal Mail so we use a courier instead. This is why our postage and packing fees may seem high for a light object, especially a stick like a carbon fibre cane weighing just 230 grams. Our courier prices are the cheapest and most reliable we can find and thankfully, the weight limit is quite high so that we can send 1 or 20 sticks for the same price which is of course passed on to our customers.

We are always looking for ways to improve and provide a better value for money service, so if you know of or work for a courier company that can deliver parcels over 100cm in length please contact us to tell us about them.
If we can use a cheaper (but still reliable) courier we will of course pass the savings onto our customers.

Many thanks in advance for any help you can give.

New Quantity Discounts For all Walking Sticks

We have just applied quantity discounts to all lines at www.walkingsticksonline.co.uk

We have had this feature on the ferrules for a long time and now you can order 1 to 6 of the same stick through the website and get ££££s off your order.
We have found that about 20% of our customers buy 2 sticks, usually one for home use and another for going out and holidays.The fold-able sticks have been particularly popular for this.
Our new discounts typically mean that if you purchase 2 of the same stick, you will save £4 or £5.Then, if you buy 3 to 6 sticks the price reduces further and further. You can choose the quantity on each product page and then click “add to basket” and the discount will show in the shopping basket.
Also, our anatomical canes that have a choice of left and right hand models, can now be purchased as a pair, saving £4. Many of our customers already buy both the right and left handed canes and now you can enjoy some money off!The postage costs stay the same (£6.75 for standard length sticks and £3.95 for folding) for up to 6 sticks in the same order.

More Shorter and Longer Walking Sticks Now in Stock

We are pleased to be able to expand our walking stick stock again with some new extra short and extra long sticks available to buy online now. The extra short patterned folding handbag sticks are already proving to be popular as are the standard sized range.For taller people, we have now added a new folding seat, some extra long anatomical sticks and a very stylish  and extra strong Derby cane. These can also now be viewed and purchased from the website.

Economy Shooting Sticks Back in Stock

Good news! Our two very popular economy shooting sticks are now back in stock! Many thanks to all for your patience after a long wait. As usual, you can order these sticks (or any of the 200 plus sticks in stock for that matter) for a next day, nominated day, or standard delivery to any address in the United Kingdom. We can also post items abroad.

New! Offset Walking Sticks and Quad Canes

We have just added some offset and quad canes to the site and now have them all in stock.

Quad canes are really excellent  support canes and they have many features to enhance this. Mainly, they are free standing so they will stay exactly where you leave them (no more bother about picking your stick up from the floor!).  They also have a large handle that is easy and comfortable to grip and there is an easy height adjusting mechanism on the shaft so you can achieve the perfect height stick for you.

Quad Canes

The other type of stick is called an offset cane, so called because of the special shape of the shaft which centres your weight directly over the shaft. This feature makes it a very strong and reliable stick but still being very lightweight.

The offset cane is also known as a swan neck.

Both types of cane are available in bronze, wood effect and a pretty blue Morris pattern.
