All sticks are lovingly handcrafted made from natural materials, constructed using traditional stick making methods.
These sticks are very tactile as well as stunning and different to look at. The handles are lovely to hold. You can feel the contours of the wood on the shaft and part of the painting technique means the painted and varnished surface is not always totally smooth giving it more life and interest.
Each stick is hand painted, the shaft framing this unique piece of original art work signed by the artist Helen Elizabeth.
This stick is made from Hazel wood.
All wood has been seasoned for at least 1 year before being straightened to make a strong sturdy shank.
Naturally shed red deer antler is used to make a beautiful tactile handle or thumb rest. A collar of black buffalo horn has been hand worked and polished to a high gloss.
And finally to finish, marine varnish is used to add lustre and further protection to the naturally durable materials.
A metal ferrule or rubber ferrule can be fitted to the end of the stick. Once you have placed your order we will contact you to obtain your choice of ferrule. If you need the stick cutting down in size I can also do this.
What is a staghorn stick?
Stag or deer horn has been used to make the stick handles for years. The naturally shed horn is cut, shaped and added to a wooden shank to make a study handle.
