Details

Carried by Irish gentlemen for centuries, the shillelagh walking stick was often a symbol of a young man's transition into adulthood. Since the mid-19th century, it has come to represent Irish craftsmanship and hospitality. The artisan who carves these blackthorn- and hazel-wood walking sticks in his County Cork home collects the branches on his daily walks through West Cork forests. The walking stick is finished with a rubber tip for traction. Each is unique.

"Very poor workmanship and poor quality 2 piece unfortuniate"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The stick had high hopes but it was poorly made in two parts, lacked a comfortable handle and was filled with sandy wood filler. The finish was sticky? I expected one piece construction with the chance to cut it to the right height. The photo in the catalog was much better than what was received. Way below the high standard for The National Geographic.
