Lewey sent me a very nice shillelagh a couple of years ago, for my wife's travel stick.  It's the length of my shortest hiking stick.  Together the two can be packed at less then the l+w+h max of 62" to avoid the extra baggage charge at the airport.

 

I'm tempted to purchase a nice bag from L.L. Bean to better protect these sticks when checked as baggage.

True a shillelagh can be any wood. They say Hawthorne makes a good substitute for blackthorn. I like ash suckers, they grow fairly straight and always have a nice root knob. By the way, a traditional stain was black shoe polish rubbed in with steel wool, gives a nice color and most polishes contain beeswax.
