A carefully put together selection of native and exotic timbers for day to day walking stick, dress canes and other special applications.
Super strong sports grade Canadian Ash (pictured) and selected English Oak shafts.
Striking mature "dogtooth" type graining in both, the Oak shafts often further enhanced by striking medullary markings. Both may be further enhanced with the use of certain staining & finishing techniques such as liming and washing with Indian ink / similar.
50" ( 1250mm )
36" ( 900mm )
....and two weights...
Heavier 25mm / 20mm taper.
Lighter 23 / 16mm taper.
The shorter sticks are genuinely strong and most useful for making up sticks where support and appearance is required.
Black Indian Palmira, sometimes called "Porcupine Wood" or "Kitul", is a heavy, dramatically figured wood, characterised by hard, very dark, almost black streaks, interlaced with light, cream/grey background and crossed at regular intervals by horizontal "bars". The timber is notoriously difficult to turn, but when this is done properly, as you will see in the illustrative example to the right, is very, very special indeed. The best will be brought out in it by careful oiling, but an equally acceptable finished appearance may be attained through the application of a quality hardglaze lacquer.
23 / 18mm taper.
We presently have no stock of slight seconds, so only first quality pieces available for now.
