Blackthorn is a very hard and thorny wood with many knotted and knarled areas which gives the tipper many varied markings

The Tipper is also known as a cipin irish.

"As I was coming home one day
I met uncle David the other way
Stick in his ass and stone in his belly
if you guess who it is i'll give you a penny."

The above Irish rhyme describes the blackthorn bush, the thorn of the blackthorn as a stick in it's ass, and the pip in the berry as a stone in it's belly. As told by my mother as many rhymes were passed down through the generations.
