Hand Carved Fox Head Walking Sticks. PLEASE READ FULL LISTING FOR PURCHASING STICK. These sticks are hand crafted by myself using traditional stick making techniques. Each stick takes 2-3 weeks to compete from start to finish and can be made to your requested length. Once your stick is completed I will contact you that it will posted.
Or you can pick your stick up from where I live in York. The shank / shaft is traditionally pegged into the head piece making for a stronger secure joint. The shanks / shafts are locally sourced and seasoned hazel in the Yorkshire area. Each shank / shaft is heated and jigged straight by myself in my workshop.
The head pieces are lime wood hand carved by myself making each piece individual to the next one. No two heads are the same making your stick a truly one off piece.
Once the head is carved the eyes are set before detailing the fur. Each head piece is hand painted before being pegged to the shank / shaft. A nickel or brass collar can be added or not, the choice is yours. Finally an ultra ferrule in added to the bottom of your stick to protect the bottom of the hazel shank when used in the field. These ferrules are higher quality than a standard ferrule giving a higher grade of protection to the bottom of the stick.Each stick is then coated with sanding sealant before a lacquer finish is applied to the whole stick making a water / weather proof finish that can be used all year long. The only power tools I use in the production of these sticks are for detailing the fur. The rest of the stick is produced using traditional tools and techniques.
