Description

Shillelaghs are traditionally made from Blackthorn.  A wood prized as it was less prone to cracking during use. The wood would be smeared with butter or lard, and placed up a chimney to cure, giving the shillelagh its typical black shiny appearance. They are commonly the length of a walking stick. Most also have a heavy knob for a handle which can be used for striking as well as parrying and disarming an opponent. This one is just such a stick. It has no cracks and just a little bark chipped off  near the head knocker. Perfect for you walking stick for an old Irish Civil War veteran or Deadwood saloon owner. 36 inches long.
