Cold Steel’s Blackthorn sticks are built for strength and durability out of high-impact polypropylene. Unlike wooden sticks found in nature, they will not warp, crack, swell or splinter.
They are made to resemble blackthorn examples from nature, but artfully designed to a point where they not only mimic nature, but actually rival and supersede anything the natural world could produce! If nature had fashioned the most perfect blackthorn sticks and you were lucky enough to own some of them, this is what they would look like.
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!
For 2016, Cold Steel is proud to add a “little brother” to the line-up, 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 is 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 on display in your house.
