I bought one of these antique blackthorn shillelaghs in Ireland a few years ago. If you talk to the old timers, they'll tell you it's all about blackthorn and don't settle for an impostor. It's easier than you think as most of the really old ones will be blackthorn anyway. Just be careful if you buy a new one.

They are Irish "fighting sticks". There was a whole martial art type system based on fighting with them.
