Gents Blackthorn Derby Walking Stick with Maple Handle

(Code: 013586)

Maple Handle Blackthorn Derby Cane

Sorry, Out of Stock until Spring 2018

The wood of blackthorn is heavier and stronger than hazel, however, suitable pieces of blackthorn are hard to come by. The colour of the wood can vary from a bright red-brown to black and the shaft of this stick is reduced and polished, giving a silky-smooth finish with great depth. The maple wood used for the handle is a premium hardwood prized for its natural luster, attractive grain, and rich warm glow. Finished with a gold gilt collar.

    1. #Dimensions#
      The dimensions of the walking stick are:
      ~ Length is 93cm
      ~ Weight is 320g
      ~ The stick diameter at the top just under the handle is 22mm and tapers down to 19mm at the ferrule end.
      ~ It is fitted with an "RFD19" type rubber ferrule size 19mm internal diameter.
    2. #Measuring & Shortening#
      We offer a FREE stick shortening service, just enter the length required in the box at checkout. Please note we cannot refund or exchange walking sticks that have been shortened, as these have been personalised for you.

      To measure someone for a walking stick, ask them to stand with their weight evenly on both feet, looking straight ahead and with their arms relaxed by their sides. You then need to measure from the floor to the prominent bone of the wrist. This is the length of walking stick required. Please note this is just a rule of thumb. If the person has special needs, they may need to be measured by a medical professional. Alternatively they may have personal preferences for a longer or shorter walking stick.

      We measure our sticks from the top curve of the handle, where the palm rests to the bottom of the ferrule. We cut the stick 0.5cm shorter than the length required to allow for the depth of rubber in the ferrule.
