Latest stock just updated!

I have been very busy over the last few months making sticks for Christmas! Last year I sold several at local farmers markets and various craft markets in the South Oxfordshire area. With lots of encouragement  from family, friends and customers I have made several more this year in between getting married and running my successful photography business (www.marklordphotography.com) These sticks are all handmade by myself with a few supplied to me from other stick makers, mainly the rams horn sticks. Sticks make great gifts for the country lover in your life. Please have a look at my stock above or by clicking here

Antler Wading Staff

I had an email from a lady looking for an antler wading staff for her husband. She wanted it to be a really special gift for him and ask for me to fit it with a silver disc with his initials on and also a 924 silver collar. I got the relevant materials from my suppliers and set about making the stick. I used a nice strong hazel shank to give him maximum support in the water and fitted a good sheet of lead to the base to give weight to the staff and to prevent it from floating away in the water. The stick was also longer than a normal thumb stick to aid assistance in deep water. The bottom of the stick was fitted with a rubber ferrule to prevent frightening the fish as a brass ferrule would make too much noise underwater. Finally the bottom was wrapped in plastic shrink-wrap to keep it all looking good and waterproofing the base.

The antler top was capped with buffalo horn as requested by my customer making this a really special gift for her man. Finally it had several coats of linseed oil to the shank and wax to the antler giving the stick a waterproofing. This can be redone once a season to keep the stick in tip-top condition.

Here are a few images of the stick

New 2 piece thumb stick made to commission

Recently I had an email from a gentleman who had seen a few sticks I had been selling on Ebay who asked me to make him an antler thumb stick that would break into two pieces. This was an interesting challenge and not something I have made often. So after just 2 weeks I sent the stick off to the gent who is delighted with it.

When I was making this stick I realised how handy it could be for a stick to be broken in two for easy transportation/ storage, for the travelling sportsman jet setting around the globe on shooting/fishing holidays.  So on that note I am available to make more of these useful sticks with prices starting from just £75.

This particular example had the antler capped in buffalo horn, a nice chunky spacer of black buffalo horn between the antler and the hazel shank and the ends of the 2 pieces of stick will black buffalo to protect the ends.

Here are a few pictures of the stick I could not resist taking before sending it off!
