We sell lots of sticks for children - they have no problems being seen with sticks - only elderly people feel any stigma associated with "being old"!

NB The Extra Long sticks are not always available - we don't cut many each year because they are difficult to find! We cut so few that we are not offering a choice of wood - but you can email us to find out what we have if you need to.

We try to keep a few of these sticks in stock but it is not always possible. If we have to make one you may have to wait 3 to 4 weeks (Longer wait October to January).

 

If you prefer to buy Gift Vouchers for a friend to spend for themselves then click the link.

 

Example in dark wood


Example in pale wood

We like to use interesting and unusual woods for the handles Typically we would use something from the following list: Elm, Sycamore, Cherry, Walnut, Beech, Alder, Ash, Oak and Mahogany - but if we see something we like we will try it. As each of these sticks is handmade, no two are identical. Occasionally we are asked to make a pair of sticks and we can try to make them as similar as possible.

If you wish to specify a choice of wood for the handle then please email first to check availability. Shanks are usually hazel or chestnut but we sometimes use other woods. Brass collars may be fitted on some of our sticks in stock or can be requested when ordering.

We can make sticks for "outsize" people - very tall, very heavy or very short (we often make sticks for children) - if you need to discuss any of this then please do so before ordering - email here

A holder for your cigarette or cigar while shooting!

Ever been lost for somewhere to put your cigar when the birds or clays start coming over? Here's a clever little holder that lets air in and smoke to escape but holds the cigar firmly with the stick pushed into the ground or leant against a fence.

Tick box above to select this in your order.
