A shillelagh (/ʃɨˈlli/ shi-LAY-lee or /ʃɨˈllə/ shi-LAY-lə; Irish: sail éille [ˈsalʲ ˈeːl̠ʲə], a cudgel with a strap) is a wooden walking stick and club or cudgel, typically made from a stout knotty stick with a large knob at the top, that is associated with Ireland and Irish folklore.

Thank-you Wikipedia.  That’s what we made here, using an actual hawthorn branch accented with epoxy clay, leather strapping, and a custom paint job.  A stunt foam version was also produced.  Both the original and stunt are show in these photos – a knock on the head will tell you which is which.  Another “Curiosity” for Strange Empire.
