- Item No.

Item Details

This striking Polish Shepherd's Axe Walking Stick is an incredible blending of art and weaponry. The brass handle is crafted in the shape of a shepherd's axe and features elaborate decorative engravings that are echoed in the brass plates that decorate the wooden shaft. Lightweight and elegant, this intriguing piece is finished with a brass cap and steel spike at the end.

Traditionally used by shepherds in the Carpathian Mountains as both walking sticks and weapons, these fascinating axes are still used today in many traditional Polish dances.
