Shillelagh is an Irish Walking Stick made from blackthorn. The Shillelagh Walking Stick is a genuine walking cane handmade in Ireland. The name “Shillelagh” is derived from the Irish town that is known as the traditional source of the Shillelagh Walking Cane from centuries ago. This Blackthorn Walking Cane comes from the Prunus spinosa wood species that is also known as blackthorn. The Blackthorn Walking Sticks provide a superior lightweight hardwood that is easier to handle.
Many Walking Sticks marketed as “Blackthorn Walking Sticks” are actually a fusion of a blackthorn handle with a hazel shaft. The Genuine Shillelagh; however, is an Irish Blackthorn Cane harvested from a blackthorn stick with a knobbed handle that is sanded smooth. The shaft of the Irish Blackthorn Walking Stick is painted with black enamel and lacquered with a high-gloss finish. These Shillelagh Walking sticks are each individually unique.
Irish Shillelagh Walking Stick is believed to have evolved to its present form from its shorter fighting stick predecessor. Today, the Shillelagh is used by farmers for herding sheep or cattle, or simply as walking companions. Many Shillelagh Walking Sticks are considered family heirlooms. Every Shillelagh is finished with a copper tip.
