I've just got myself a nice finished seasoned and clear varnished thumbstick,would it be OK to store it just inside my front door just by the pipes that supply a radiator or could the heat cause it to warp?Its not right upon the pipes a couple of inches away.

It'll be alright mate, but if the varnish comes off give it a rub down with linseed oil, once a day for a week, once a week for a month, then once a year for life

I've learnt the best way of stopping them breaking is stop hitting the wife with them!!

There must have been a weakness or they weren't seasoned fully.

Did you season them yourself ?

I use a Hazel thumbstick every single day and use it as a tool not just a walking stick and they'll take some abuse.

So they broke at their weak points.

A one piece seasoned hazel thumbstick is a very sturdy tool.
