Here is a staff with a knock down joint in the middle, hence it will be less expensive to ship. You can leave the joint dry so you can disassemble it and store it easier or you can assemble it with wood glue and the strength would be close to original. I lost track of this one but I believe it is birch. It stands 71" tall and the shaft varies from 1-2" in diameter. The roots fit in an 8x8 girth box. This one has a nice hollow scar about 12" tall, and the whole staff has been rough sanded unlike most of the others. It is good and seasoned and weighs less than 2# 7ozs.(ufws167)
