Blackthorn Walking Canes From Ireland
Witness the Charm and Beauty coupled in these Blackthorn Walking Canes produced in Ireland.
IrishWalkingSticks.com wants to invite everyone to enjoy the artistry of Russian-bourne, now Irish artisan Paul Nabadula. Mr. Nabadula has taken the indigenous Irish Wood of Blackthorn and created a beautiful, one-of-a-kind Walking Cane that combines Comfort, Style, and Stability with a high standard of Decorative and Aesthetic Value.
Mr. Nabadula employs his own Shaping by Tension Technology in these Canes, using various parts of the Blackthorn Plant, and Staining or Smoking Handles or Shanks for lighter or darker hues. Some Canes are strengthened with Steel Rods from Shank to Handle, and are one or two solid pieces of wood. Others are Two Piece Canes that he has allowed Nature to dictate where the best Patterns of Grains be cut from one Solid Block of Blackthorn.
All are then finished and cured for one year for the Strongest, most Functional, most Durable, and yet most Artful Pieces of Wood sculptor one can produce.
All are shipped directly to you from Ireland, and take approx. 3 weeks from his Studio to your door.
