As they walked along with their flock, Scottish highland farmers would collect branches and ramshorn to take home and carve during long winter evenings by the fire. Our wooden walking stick features a resin-handle replica of a traditional thistle design, Scotland’s national flower.
Wood; resin handle; steel ferrule. Made in Scotland. 37"L.
Not up to National Geographic standards. Plastic handle looks plastic and what good is a walking stick that you can't walk with?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
