Walking Stick Shafts or Shanks for Stickmaking

The shanks below have all been straightened and fitted with a metal ferrule, ready for a hole to be drilled in the top so that a handle can be attached.

Looking for a specific wood at a specific length? Please contact us with your request and we will arrange it for you.

We can also source twisty blackthorn, hazel, ash and holly shanks from time to time but these sticks are rare!

Walking Stick Shanks or Shafts

Make your own walking stick using the handle of your choice with our straightened shafts or shanks. All of our new shanks are fitted with a metal ferrule and are ready to be drilled and a handle connected.

Choose from hazel, chestnut, beech, blackthorn and maple wood shafts. Some have the bark attached and some are turned smooth. The turned maple and beech shafts also have brass collars already attached as well as the metal ferrules. So, depending on whether you want to make a smart, formal looking cane or a rustic country walking stick we have a good selection to help you on your way.

If you want to make lots of walking sticks then take advantage of our bundle prices. The shanks in the bundle selections have all been grown, selected and coppiced locally (near the city of Cambridge). They have then been stored in a dry shed for two to three years and then steam straightened and cut.

These shanks do not have metal ferrules attached, it is just the shanks you are buying. These shanks are of excellent quality and look amazing when the stick is finished. The stickmaker who prepares these, selects, coppices and straightens them is an engineer and a perfectionist and he uses the shanks to make walking sticks designed to last a lifetime, at least!

A recent customer comment:

Just received my order. Very happy with what you sent, particularly with a hazel shank that had no ferrule. The ones with ferrules were okay too. Thank you for being so responsive. Thanks also for the generous amount of metal ferrules. I make crooks and market sticks for my herding friends as a hobby (That means I don't charge them). Several of them have shown interest in learning how to learn the craft. I will definitely recommend Emilyhannah when they need stick making supplies. Jerry
