If you’re old enough to remember being told to go get a switch and make sure it’s big enough for the ass-whooping some relative was about to inflict, the Thick Stick might feel familiar to you. It takes the best parts of a cane – long, narrow, and stinging – and combines it with the best of wooden paddles.
Consider this the older, more mature cousin of the Slapstick. It’s lightweight and easy to wield. Even better, it gets into the hard to reach places. And, it can be used to give much needed correction.
The sensation is sharp, stinging, and as painful as you want to make it. Watch out for the corners (those aren’t rounded) as they’ll definitely hurt. But that might be exactly what you want.
Each Thick Stick has a laminated handle to create a more comfortable grip. That means the entire stick is sandwiched between two thin pieces of wood at the handle area. The wood used for the handle varies based on availability. It is often a contrasting color to the thick stick wood.
