CS91PBSZ: 91PBS Irish Blackthorn Walking Stick
Cold Steel

The Blackthorn bush is found throughout Ireland and the British Isles. It has been prized for centuries as a material for premium walking sticks. The original Blackthorn sticks were 2 to 4 foot long Irish shillelaghs (the national weapon of rural Ireland). In expert hands the shillelagh was so fearsome that during the final occupation of Ireland, the English outlawed it. To get around the law, the Irish turned the shillelagh into a 3-foot walking stick. The English didn't want to appear unreasonable by outlawing walking sticks too, so the Irish kept their modified shillelaghs and the world gained a beautiful and functional walking stick known simply as the Blackthorn.

Cold Steel made the effort to obtain and sell authentic Blackthorn sticks over fifteen years ago, but the venture turned out to be disappointing, and not because the sticks didn't sell well. It was because Blackthorn is difficult to come by and, since it's grown and not manufactured, it is somewhat inconsistent in quality.

Cold Steel's recent forays into injected molded polypropylene products has yielded some impressive results and now we have produced a new polypropylene Blackthorn that has all of the advantages of real Blackthorn and none of its pitfalls.

Our Irish Blackthorn Walking Stick is inspired by an authentic Blackthorn from Cold Steel President, Lynn C. Thompson's private collection. It was copied carefully, and then artfully modified to a point where it not only mimics nature, but actually rivals and supersedes anything the natural world could produce! If nature had fashioned the most perfect Blackthorn stick, and you were lucky enough to come by it, our Irish Blackthorn Walking Stick is what it would look like. It's a superb faux Blackthorn stick, and since it's injection molded from polypropylene, it will never warp, crack, swell up, or splinter and is easy to maintain with a little soap and water.

The Cold Steel Irish Blackthorn Walking Stick features single piece black Polypropylene construction, with an undulating shaft. The Knob grip has a diameter of approximately 2 3/4". The shaft has a 1.375" diameter at the neck that tapers to 1.0" diameter at the base. Overall length: 37". Weight: 28.2 ounces.

This walking stick is extremely sturdy. It should do the job of a walking stick or defense weapon.

Initially, I was somewhat surprised by the weight of this walking stick. While not overly heavy, it is stout and has a definitely authoritative heft in the hand. Cosmetically it is very nice and only at very close range is it apparent that is made of synthetic materials. The length is more than adequate. The "root ball" top is a handful but the undercut lip allows for a secure and comfortable grip while walking and effective counter balance when using a saber or two-handed grip. Shipping time was very quick. I am very satisfied with this purchase and believe it is an excellent value.

I was able to find an Emerson Mini A-100 which was unavailable or back ordered elsewhere. The price was good and shipping was very quick (two days). I will definitely buy though them again.
