Cold Steel's Irish Blackthorn Walking Stick has been a firm fan favorite since its inception. Its good looks, combined with its hard-wearing materials have made it an often imitated but never equaled classic! This "little brother” is a shorter, lighter model simply named the Blackthorn Shillelagh. Modeled after an ancient cudgel in Lynn C. Thompson’s private collection, the Blackthorn Shillelagh mimics the look, feel and balance of the original, but made from high-impact polymer that will withstand even the harshest weather conditions. With a handsome bark-like wood texture and raised “clipped thorns” on the shaft, and a highly polished faux-wood head, this good looking stick will be sure to turn heads – whether it is carried under your arm at a historical re-enactment event, or simply hung by the door to greet uninvited guests.
This walking stick is constructed of extremely durable injection molded polypropylene. Fashioned to resemble actual Blackthorn, this faux Blackthorn stick is more durable and will not warp, swell, splinter or crack. This is an ideal walking stick to take with you on any hike or adventure into the wild. Cold Steel found that actual Blackthorn is too difficult to obtain and keep quality consistent at a reasonable price. This stick is injection molded from polypropylene. It will not warp, crack, swell or splinter. It can be cleaned with soap and water.
