“I was looking for a fathers day gift for my husband and decided a stick using an antler that was special to him was the perfect gift! I contacted Paul who said he could help. Communication was first class, giving me regular updates on progress. The stick arrived in plenty of time for father’s day, expertly packaged and its beautiful. I can see the love and care Paul has put into making it and the materials he has used are in keeping with the antler, preserving its authenticity. A true artisan craftsman who clearly takes a great pride in his work. Thank you!”

hello Paul. Thank you so much for your walking sticks, My brother is thrilled to bits with his and is looking forward to putting it to good use for the afternoon walk with his dog- great timing too as the ground underfoot is precarious.
The other stick arrived here in Wales safely- we can’t wait to present it to (the new owner) and will do our best to send you a photo.

I’ve been meaning to email you for a few days.I absolutely love my stick, thank you , and my brother-in-law loves his too.
The leather strap didn’t quite work but I’ve taken it off and its perfect as is; beautiful, smooth handle perfect height and weight. Please keep your eye out for another just like it in case I need another.
i’m also intending on ordering one for my (relatives title) soon.

The stick is a tremendous success and has boosted my brothers morale and made him determined to get mobile gain. Thank You.
The postman was intrigued what was in the drainpipe !!( this is a reference to the fact that I often use white waste pipe as a package method to protect the stick during the postage process)

“When the time came for me to have a bespoke walking stick/cane, I turned to Paul at Artisan Sticks. Between my ideas and his suggestions & advice, a design was agreed. A series of progress photos from actual stick to walking stick followed.
The stick itself is a true work of art, both a stout walking stick for trekking across Exmoor or scaling Scarfell Pike and a stylish, elegant cane that’s in a class of its own.
Thanks to Paul, who is a professional and a gentleman, his knowledge, skill and artistry, I have a stick that goes with me everywhere.”
