The Irish walking stick (in Gaelic: ''shillelaghs'') was used in Ireland and Scotland for centuries. The reliable stick is a solid aid for travelling the inhospitable hills and valleys of Ireland and Scotland. Of course, like most things in Gaelic society, this stick is not only a tool but a feared weapon as well that arrived hard and unexpectedly.
Especially the Irish are known for their fighting with shillelaghs, in fact they were so good that the English considered the sticks illegal during the last occupation of Ireland.
United Cutlery made this club as a variation on the traditional shillelaghs. Like the walking sticks, the club has the gnarled design to imitate the properties of Blackthorn wood used for the walking sticks. At the top it also contains a club head that can make quite hard impacts. The difference with the walking stick is the handy and manoeuvrable size. It has a leather cord for the hand so you can hold it tightly.
