All sticks are lovingly handcrafted made from natural materials, constructed using traditional stick making methods.

The Stick

All wood has been seasoned for at least 1 year before being straightened to make a strong sturdy shank.

The beautiful tactile knob ball top is lovely to hold and has been hand worked to a give it a smooth finish.  

And finally to finish, marine varnish is used to add luster and further protection to the naturally durable materials.


A metal ferrule has been fitted to the end of the stick.


The red squirrel is native to the UK they are endangered due to loss of their habitat and the introduction of the grey squirrel. Thankfully there are areas where they are now thriving as their woodland has been protected and the grey controlled. Such a cute lovely creature.
