Chestnut Long Shepherd's Crook

The Chestnut Long Shepherd's Crook is a distinctive and traditional country walking stick, ideal for everyday country use, as well as hiking. Made from coppiced chestnut wood and featuring a practical crooked handle, the cane is particularly popular among bramble pickers.

Ideal for the Countryside

In the British countryside, a rustic walking stick is an indispensable accessory, carried by people of all ages. With its modest design, convenient crooked handle and metal ferrule that provides a safe grip when you are making your way through mud, stinging nettles and brambles, the Chestnut Long Shepherd's Crook is the perfect everyday walking stick.

The Crook

Traditionally used by shepherds when herding their flock, as the crook handle makes the stick easy for the shepherd to wield, and can also be used for catching sheep around the neck. Today, crook-handled walking sticks are still highly popular for hiking and particularly loved by bramble pickers.

Chestnut Wood

This long country stick is grown from coppiced chestnut wood, as chestnut is one of the trees that responds very well to this method, which is still commonly practised in Great Britain. This type of wood is known for its strength and durability, making it the ideal material for walking sticks.

A Brief History on Coppicing

These sticks are made using the centuries-old 'coppice-with-standard' forestry system to produce the raw material needed to make beautiful walking sticks. Beneath an upper canopy of maturing timber trees, smaller ash trees are grown to around 10cm (4") in diameter. They are then cut at a height of approximately 120cm (4").

Each plant produces new shoots, which are just above the nibbling height of the woodlands population of wild roe deer. Over three to four years, these shoots grow to the correct height and diameter to form raw material for walking sticks.

Often part of the original tree is cut with the stick; turned the other way up, this becomes the handle for a knobstick. Straight sections of wood become hiking poles and those with a natural 'V' in the wood become thumbsticks.

Sizing of the Chestnut Long Shepherd's Crook

The approximate height of this cane is 137cm (54"). Due to the natural sourcing and manufacturing process, however, the length may vary slightly from product to product.

It is for my wife for a Christmas present as we have a border collie! It is a little taller than I expected, do you supply a shorter one?
