About Classic Canes
Native British hardwoods such as ash, hazel and blackthorn are cut off to a height of approximately 120cm from the ground. New shoots result and take three to four years to grow to the correct diameter for walking sticks such as hiking staffs, thumbsticks and knobsticks.
The wood is harvested in the winter when the sap is down in the trees, before being dried for at least a year to remove the moisture from the wood.
The sticks are then steamed and straightened before being hand sanded, varnished and fitted with ferrules to become finished walking sticks. Each one is unique.
