More Rams Horn crooks now available. This really is the last of the crooks before Christmas!!!

Due to popular demand and the fact the last lot of rams horn crooks sold so quickly I have managed to get another 11 together to sell before Christmas. This really is it now for 2015 stock and once these 11 are gone I will have no more rams horn crooks in stock before next Spring. These are some of the best I have had too making them all the better to give as a gift to you loved one or for yourself this Christmas.

The joint is held together with a piece of threaded bar  and 2 pack epoxy resin and are very strong indeed! The shanks take on different colour in the bark depending on where they have been grown. This is a handmade product so will have natural imperfections in the horn and wood but add to the character of the stick. All shanks are varnished to protect the wood from moisture and if looked after will last for years to come. All sizes are approximate to within 0.5″. All sticks can be shortened to length and will have a ferrule fitted before sending to you.
