    What you gentlemen have are Irish Blackthorn walking sticks or canes. A shillelagh is only about 18" long with a wrist thong and sometimes a lead filled root ball. It was used as a striking weapon but was outlawed by the British when they first occupied Ireland. Too many Brit heads being cracked I guess. The walking stick evolved from this fighting weapon and the Brits never outlawed the canes for some reason. I have a walking stick 34" with a lead filled head by Mystic Shillelagh. Google that name and look at some beautiful sticks. They stock canes, staffs and shillelaghs.

    I have a "cane" that is more like a fungo bat.


    I rarely walk with it, but same idea.

    YMMV, depending on the blackthorne material available. Check out Olde Shillelagh - Store

    ...Shillelagh (club) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia the name denotes sticks, canes, and the original club length...the longer lengths came into being to circumvent the ban...

    I call them clubs--of varying lengths! Simple but effective.

    Bought one my self a few years back after they hit the market. They sure can take abuse, of which I can testify to.
