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. Finished with a rubber tip for traction. Each is unique.

These sticks are all unique, of course. The handle on mine is huge and I considered returning it, but then tried it out and it's fine. It's kind of like walking around with the head of a three-wood in my hand, but no wild beast will dare apporach if I wave this mighty club about. You should know that the carving of the handle is crude, as if done with an ax. The finish appears to be very durable. The shaft is as interesting as a dark-stained broom handle, which I suppose is necessary due to the pieces of wood used. (I have an English stick that has bark and is more refined in shape.) Solid, very usable walking stick.

Unfortunately the IRISH WALKING STICK sent to me did not look remotely like the article pictured in the catalog. The article shown in the catalog was finished well and "looked" professional. The article sent to me was rough and amateurish. National Geographic not only misrepresented the walking stick in but made me spend my time and additional money to return it. I cancelled the catalog.

    Comments about Irish Walking Stick:

    I injured both knees years ago, and from time to time they "go out" and I need a bit of extra support. Knowing that I love all things Irish, a friend had this sent to me. I love how light yet sturdy it is; and the fact that it does NOT have a ferrule made it easy to cut down to my size. I like that it is so long, for those who are taller.

                    I purchased this cane last year just for the beauty of a natural cane, never ever thinking is need it, I was wrong! I recently had an unexpected operation thus I was unable to walk. First I was using crutches but they just are annoying n more of a bother than not! So I remembered I had this lovely cane. I've used it now for two months get people asking me where I got it n what it is...it's very sturdy, yet not heavy. Can use either hand if needed. I've found holding the head of cane differently each day depending on my needs, which a regular cane would not be available to do. Detail is beautiful as finish is great! So glad I purchased this cane, it's just a wonderful piece of nature!!!

                                We were amazed at the quality and authenticity of this walking stick. My husband is from Ireland and could not have been more pleased with it.

                                I looked at others that were more expensive, but they did not match this product.

                                          We bought this for my father-in-law's 90th birthday.
                                          He needs some help walking and this was perfect for short distances. Since he is mostly Irish, he thought it was great and tells EVERYONE he meets when using it the story behind it. This was a great choice for a person who has everything he needs.
