Hawthorn shares many of the qualities of the Blackthorn,, e.g. tough and hard wearing with frequent distinctive knots.
When the outer bark is removed, a warm reddish brown under bark is exposed.
Hawthorn makes good quality walking sticks which are attractive, strong and hard wearing. From my experience, I rate Hawthorn very highly as a wood that invariably makes first class walking sticks.
Some reasons for choosing a Hawthorn walking stick: -
- Hawthorn sticks are strong and hard wearing
- The shaved shank reveals a lovely grained under-bark which responds well to sanding.
- Frequent knots add variety to the finished stick.
All of my sticks are entirely handmade and have been sourced, seasoned and handcrafted by me.
The dimensions shown under the Additional Information tab are in inches and ounces. The width is the measurement at the tip (bottom) of the stick. Any stick can be shortened to a specified length at no extra cost.
Guidelines for arriving at the optimum length for you are shown on the Choosing a Stick page.
