This stick is inspired by Canadian hockey & modeled after sticks from the 1920's and 30's. It is a 2-piece construction made from Minnesota Ash (the next batch will be made from Canadian sugar maple). Flat blade with 2" of black leather at the toe of the blade, which is the historic precursor to the cloth tape used today. Leather by Leather Works Minnesota. Handcrafted and painted in Winona, MN.
