Bought in from a local stick maker, all the elements used to make these walking sticks are sourced and/or made locally. The handles have a powerful magnet in-bedded in the tops enabling the user to pick up their dropped keys or spent gun cartridges from the ground, without having to bend down to pick them up.
The magnet is built in to the handle and not the base to prevent the user from collecting up all sorts of rubbish while out walking. You need only to flip the stick upside down to pick things up.
The stick maker makes the sticks at a height that the user can lean on arms folded while out in the field. We can however, have these walking sticks made at any height you need and with a choice of different handles.
We have a feeling that these practical sticks won’t just be popular amongst people who go out shooting game. They are just as useful around the house to pick up dropped keys and things for people who have difficulty bending.
These complete walking sticks are made to the usual high standard that all of our handmade sticks meet. The shanks are selected, cut, dried for two to three years and then steam straightened. The handles are fitted to the shanks with a steel connecting rod, a horn spacer is added between the handle and the shank to make a seamless finish.
The sticks are then polished and finished with Danish oil and a brass ferrule attached to the tip.
Many hours of careful, thoughtful and creative work goes into stick making which you will appreciate when you hold the finished item in your hands.
