I have four splendid wooden crooks here all ready to head out the workshop for a lovely autumnal walk.
All sticks are made from wood and will show slight imperfections adding to their charm and individuality. Wood can easily be waxed or buffed up to keep a good shine if that’s what you wish or they will take on a lovely patina from just using them. These are all varnished to protect them but I find a little wax or polish will keep them in tip top condition.
All sticks can be shortened and once sold will be fitted with a brass ferrule before shipping. UK postage and packaging is £20 and Europe £50 – I do not send to USA or Australia
UK postage for up to 3 sticks is just £20 too so please check out my other sticks too.
Payment by cash, BACS or cheque.
I am based in South Oxfordshire and welcome enquiries by appointment only. I would be able to show you the sticks in our carport so safely outdoors during the Covid pandemic.
All enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org please.
Generally I’d not recommend wooden crooks as working crooks as the crook will inevitably snap if wrestling a sheep, however 3 of these are laminated so will be stronger and should take a bit more punishment – if you dare!
First up we have this beautiful crook with Beech outers and Purple Heart wood in the centre. All glued up in a gig as a three ply laminate left to dry before the shape of the crook is cut out, filed and sanded into shape.
Measuring approx 51.5″ to the top it is a nice looking and strong crook with hazel shank looking for fun in the countryside – £100
Next up we have a lovely looking Lacewood crook on hazel shank measuring approx 52″ to the v. A bit less jazzy than the others listed but a great looking crook which feels great in the hand. Perfect for a trip to the pub once they reopen! £85
My personal favourite this beautiful laminated Beech and Purple Heart shepherds crook with hazel shank is truly beautiful. Strong, stocky and attractive it has everything going for it. It measures approx 51.5″ in length on a chunky chocolatey hazel shank. A real corker for just £125
Finally and possibly the showstopper to some people is this very attractive and useful beauty!
I could pretty much guarantee you will not see another one of these on your travels at the moment! A very attractive and strong crook, probably too good to use on the farm and I know many collectors follow me looking for something unusual so here it is!
Plywood core with American Walnut outers on a lovely mottled hazel shank. A cracking Christmas present for loved one or for yourself!
Measuring approx 51.5″ in length it can be shortened before I fit a ferrule. A real stunner and I don’t think the recipient could ever be disappointed! £130
