Though they vary somewhat in design, all are cast steel and, except for the model marked IDEAL, all have the thimble brazed on.  Many are painted with a black varnish (known as Japanned).  Like Varney, Ludlow-Saylor made sticks under other names including COLORADO, CALUMET, HECLA, CRESCENT, DULUTH, IMPROVED IDEAL, IRON RANGE, MONTANA, MT SHASTA, MENLO, CALIFORNIA, EUREKA, ARGAUNAUT and WASHINGTON.  Several of these sticks are pictured on my site.  They varied in length from 8 ¾ to 12 in; see Wilson and Bobrink, Candlestick Guide, pp 35-39)
