3 Black Buffalo Horned Beauties…

I have three beautiful black buffalo horn crook on hazel shanks looking for a good home. All three are slightly smaller and lighter than most of the rams horn crooks I sell. They look very smart and are great for anyone who prefers black over cream, they look the part in the field, on your peg or on the farmyard or great just to pick up and take to the local countryside with the dog too.

All crooks 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 crooks to USA or Australia

Payment by cash, BACS or cheque.

I am based in South Oxfordshire and welcome enquiries by appointment only.

First Post

Hello, this is my first post of my new blog – Lord’s Country Sticks.

This blog is about my hobby of stick making and love of the great British countryside. I will be showcasing the sticks I make together with the processes involved in making them and my interests in the countryside.

So, to start with here is a photograph of the first 8 sticks I made last year, 7 of which sold within 1 week at a local pub in South Oxfordshire.

My first attempts at stick making (that I'm willing to show)

From left to right we have a burr elm crook on a hazel shank, ash/rosewood laminate thumb stick on hazel, red deer antler capped with cow horn capping, a one piece crook style fruit picking stick, a churchill buffalo thumb stick on chestnut with a bone spacer, large antler thumb stick with walnut cappings and walnut spacer, a buffalo crook with copper collar and a lovely birch staff.
