The rustic walking stick is an essential accessory in the British countryside. Popular models include simple hiking staffs, thumbsticks, shepherd's crooks and knobsticks.
Simple hiking staffs are popular with walkers, and junior hiking staffs have great appeal for children.Thumbsticks are so called because they are held with the thumb resting in the naturally-occurring fork in the wood, a very comfortable position.Shepherds crooks were originally used by shepherds to catch their sheep around the neck.Knobsticks and crossheads are very traditional country sticks with a loyal following. Blackthorn Walking Sticks are a great add on to your collection of Classic Country.
If you love to hike then you probably already have or at least have considered getting a hiking staff. They can make your trek up and down the mountain so much more enjoyable and can serve you in many ways.
Some people just find a stick on their way up the mountain and that works fine for them. If you want something that is truly nice, you might consider making your own staff. It is sure to have lots of meaning for you.
A hiking staff is a handy accessory to have with you on a long hike. It can help you to maneuver through rough terrain with ease. Many of the fancy staffs sold today come with extras to make your hiking experience even more enjoyable. A compass inlaid in the knob of the staff is one example of a nifty extra.
